What's Ella Enchanted About

Publisher Summary

In this novel based on the story of Cinderella, Ella struggles against the childhood curse that forces her to obey any order given to her. At birth, Ella of Frell was given the gift of obedience by a fairy. Ella soon realizes that this gift is little better than a curse, for how can she truly be herself if at any time anyone can order her to hop on one foot, or cut off her hand, or betray her kingdom—and she’ll have to obey? Ella’s quest to break the curse and discover who she really is, is both funny and poignant.

This was an absolute favorite in my house growing up and is one I’ll always want in my home library. Gail Carson Levine does a fantastic job weaving a beautiful tale of a girl who was given a gift at birth to always obey, but the gift has turned more into an imprisonment that Ella tries to break the curse and be herself. There’s so much magic, adventure, and heart in this fun book.
