That fool of a fairy Lucinda did not intend to lay a curse on me. She meant to bestow a gift. When I cried inconsolably through my first hour of life, my tears were her inspiration. Shaking her head sympathetically at Mother, the fairy touched my nose. 'My gift is obedience. Ella will always be obedient. Now stop crying, child.' I stopped. So begins this richly entertaining story of Ella of Frell, who wants nothing more than to be free of Lucinda's gift and feel that she belongs to herself. For how can she truly belong to herself if she knows that at any time, anyone can order her to hop on one foot, cut off her hand, or betray her kingdom and she'll have to obey? Against a bold tapestry of princes, ogres, giants, wicked stepsisters, and fairy godmothers, Ella's spirited account of her quest to break the curse is a funny, poignant, and enchanting tale about an unforgettable heroine who is determined to be herself.

This re-told story changed my life - it's a book that turned me into a reader with its strong independent female characters and entrancing re-telling of Cinderella. I honestly never would have turned to a life of reading without this intelligent, heart-melting, humorous book. It taught me to be kind, adventurous, and even now as an adult - I find myself reading it every year with a new perspective taking a way new lessons. I highly recommend this book, it teaches you to be a fighter against the odds and that's what everyone need a little bit of.

I love this book so much! It's a real shame the movie didn't stay really true to it.

One of the best fractured fairy tales, Ella must fight a curse that forces her to obey anyone and everyone. If you liked the movie, you'll love the book.
