Review Detail3.7 23
I prefer Mageret Peterson Haddix's Just Ella rather than Ella Enchanted because Just Ella is more realistic. All the while you're thinking-ah-that could have happened. That could have been the secret behind the fairy-tale Cinderella. In this book Cinderella has guts, courage and lots of drama.
After fantising about Prince Charming for so long, Ella realises she posesses no feelings for him. He is dull and doesn't care for his subjects. But how can Ella escape from the clutches of the castle and the eye of her her evil mother-in-law when there is a war waging outside? And why she feel so much more comfortable with her tutor rather than her soon-to-be-husband?
Discover what really happened Cinderella and if the story really eneded happily ever after.
A throughly enchanting read! Just Ella will blow you away.
