Synopsis

Cinderskella by Amie Borst, Bethanie Borst

Cindy is just a normal 11-and-three-quarters-year-old. At least until she wakes up one night and finds out she's dead. Well, she isn't technically dead-she just doesn't have any hair . . . or a nose . . . or skin. Yep-all bones, no body. Human by day and skeleton by night, Cindy is definitely cursed. And because her mother recently died, Cindy has no one to turn to except a father who's now scared of her and an evil stepmother who makes her do the housecleaning with a toothbrush. To make matters worse, the Spring Fling dance is approaching, and Ethan, the cutest boy in sixth grade, doesn't seem to know Cindy exists. Of course, Cindy doesn't think letting Ethan find out she's part skeleton is the best way to introduce herself. While facing such perils as pickled pig's feet, a wacky fortune teller, and a few quick trips to the Underworld, Cindy's determined to break the curse--even for a single night.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
