5"As finely designed as a tapestry, with a heroine so spirited that she wins readers' hearts." --ALA Booklist

5Ella Enchanted is a delightful variation on the traditional "Cinderella" tale. The first-person narrative was fun, and I loved the heroine's spunk, vulnerability and endearing attitude. Ella, who lives in a land called Kyrria in the city of Frell, is under the influence of a fairy "gift" that is truly a curse. She will always be obedient. Sounds like the ideal gift, right? Not when people can use Ella in any way they see fit. Anyone can command her with an order, and she is unable to make her own decisions. This wonderful book is the tale of a young woman's quest to discover who she is and how to be free. I especially loved how the romance in this book was believable and not the typical prince/princess meeting and instantaneous marriage. Every character is likable, and, in this version, the prince, (Charmont), has lots of depth and strength. The most memorable character is Ella's father, Sir Peter of Frell. He is an unscrupulous, manipulative and oddly likable character: honest and ultimately an instrument used to force Ella to begin her quest. Another character I loved was Mandy, a cook who is more than she seems. Please give this wonderful book a chance. God bless you all.
