Just Ella

Being a princess isn't all it's cracked up to be! You've heard the fairytale: a glass slipper, Prince Charming, happily ever after... Well, welcome to reality: royal genealogy lessons, needlepoint, acting like "a proper lady," and — worst of all — a prince who is not the least bit interesting, and certainly not charming. For an independent, active girl like Ella, that means her dream has turned into a nightmare.

As soon-to-be princess Ella deals with her newfound status, she comes to realize she is not "your majesty" material. But breaking off a royal engagement is no easy feat, especially when you're crushing on another boy in the palace. For Ella to escape, it will take intelligence, determination, and spunk — and no ladylike behavior allowed. Best-selling author Margaret Peterson Haddix puts a fresh, feminist spin on the story of Cinderella in this fun twisted fairy tale.

Description

"[Ella discovers] it's downright boring for a self-reliant and active girl to do needlework all day or listen to instructions on court etiquette from the strict and cold Madame Bisset.... Ella finally gets up the courage to announce to Charming that she doesn't want to go through with the wedding, but when she finds herself locked in the dungeon she realizes it's not that easy to walk away from a politically arranged marriage. In the end, as in all good fairy tales, our heroine and hero do manage to live happily ever after — but with a twist." — Patty Campbell, Amazon.com Reviews
