I thought this book was great because it wasn't like so many of the happy ever after abridged versions of cinderella. It bringsawhoel new menaing to the name cinder-ella. In total Maragret Peterson Haddix style this novel tells the story of an intelligent woman who niavely mistakes a fling for love. She is entranced by the glamorous and seemingly graceful prince but when she becomes engaged to him she realizes that not all fairytales are what they seem. This Ella isn't afraid to stand up for what she believes and is empowering to girls. SHe plans her escape and doesn't hesitate to get down and dirty literally! After I read this novel I could't help but laugh because the author managed to make every aspect that is told in the original story not what it seemed. The important things in the fairy tale like the prince fitting the glass shoe is somewhat trivial. Overall, I would definitely say read this book.
