"Ella Enchanted" is my favorite book ever! It really captures all of Ella's struggles after Eleanor (Ella's mother) dies. It is a very unexpected and successful twist on the classic tale of cinderella.
This book is very nice and is something a teacher could read to young students without them getting too bored. I love that Gail, the author, has such a vivid imagination and made an awesome book out of it.
I'd like to think I'm a fairly well-read individual, but at the end of the day this is still my favorite book ever. It was a very formative book to have read as a young woman. I learned along with Ella to assert myself and to find my own value in the world, something for which I am eternally grateful. This a wonderful book for anyone to read--check it out today!

This is my all-time favorite book. Being a middle-school girl is not easy and never has been but this story teaches girls to take control of their lives instead of sitting idly by. Plagued by a curse that bestows her with blind obedience, Ella runs away to change her fate and take control over her own life that had been ruled by less-than-savory people. This is not a story about wimpy beauties who wait for princes to rescue them, it's about a young woman who learns to be strong and go after what she wants all by herself.
