Reader reviewed by Swayze

Just Ella by Margaret Peterson Haddix is one of the best young adult books I have read.  Many of my 7th grade students (mostly girls) borrowed this book before I had a chance to read it.  I am so glad I took the time to read this unexpected delight of a book.  

Haddix's story of Cinderella, after she has moved into the Charming castle, allows readers a glimpse into a fairy tale gone wrong.  While being broken in like a wild horse, Ella finds out that she might not want her new royal life.  Through various life lessons and experiences, Ella discovers who she is truly meant to be.  Haddix includes something for everyone - action, adventure, romance, self-realization.  This surprising coming-of-age story is one that I will definitely recommend to my female students.  Cinderella has a new happy ending!

Ok, ha, but I would not say it is better than Ella Enchanted, though this book is somewhat good. First of all, nothing about princesses and them digging out is very REAL, and secondly, Ella in Ella enchanted also had guts, her spell just stopped her. Ella Enchanted is much more exciting because it also grabs the reades attnetion in the beginning. So, no, I say ELLA ENCHANTED is better!

Meet Ella, a hard working woman, living with her cruel stepmother and sisters. After the Princes Grand Ball, Ella finds herself engaged to his Royal Highness, young Charming. Now, Ella must survive the rules and restrictions of a palace life. Will our hardworking, rag wearing, Ella be able to coup with a pampered young Prince? Or will she escape from his Royal grasp?

Just Ella is a good book to curl up in a chair, and read just before bed. This story relates to that of Cinderella, but is far more interesting than a childs Fairy Tale. It is a tale of truth, lies, love, betrayal, and most of all freedom. This book is a must read for teenagers, because it holds most of their interests.
