Ella, the heroine, is under a curse by a fairy named Lucinda. She has to obey every command that is thrown her way? Can you imagine that?
Her mother has just died. Her father is a greedy businessman and her cook, Mandy, is actually her fairy godmother. She meets Prince Char at her mother's funeral.

After her mother's death, Dame Olga and step-evils arrive. Hattie, the older step-evil learns about Ella's curse as they head off to finishing school. It can't get any worse, can it?

Ella escapes from finishing school and enters a world of ogres, giants, fairies and fantasy. And there is always Prince Char...
This is the version of Cinderella that ends happily ever after.
I also recommend 'Just Ella' by Margaret Peterson Haddix.
