Ella Enchanted
Book: Ella Enchanted

Ella Enchanted-A MUST READ!!! submitted by Justine, 7th grade
Rating: 5 / 5
"Ella Enchanted", written by Gail Carson Levine, is a tale about a troubled girl, Ella, who is burdened with a curse of obedience. She goes on a quest to rid herself of it, but she meets many challenges along the way-orges, fairies, even her love with Prince Char. Will Ella break the curse before it is too late?
The moral of this story is that you should protect the people you love and not be selfish. Ella loves Prince Char, but she cannot marry him with her curse. She does not want to endanger his life. Ella gives the perfect example of this when she thinks, "But I had to obey-wanted to obey-hated to harm him-wanted to marry him."
The author really captures the reader with her vivid descriptions and realism. The story is filled with many different emotions-sadness, frustration, and true love. "Ella Enchanted" is told in first person, by Ella. The plot is very similar to that of Cinderella.
This story was absolutely enthralling. In fact, it was so enjoyable that I could barely set it down. "Ella Enchanted" may be the best book I've ever read. This book definitely hands-down a must read!

"Ella Enchanted" is a breathtaking story of a girl named Ella and this curse of obedeince that she has.Throughout the book she has shown that she despritly needs to breake this curse since the fairy that gave it to her wont take it back...But now she has a new reason to break the curse...
I personally have read this book so many times that my book is starting to get worn out. This book however many times you read it is just as good as if you have read it for the first time."Ella Enchanted" makes you want to lagh,cry,sigh,and sometimes makes you want to screem all at once! this is why I recomend that you read this ultimite and wonderful book.

A Different, Better Cinderella
Rating: 5 / 5
The story of Ella is one of empowerment, as Ella is a character every young girl can relate to. Levine puts a spin on the classic Cinderella story, and makes her "Cinderella" so much more than a good girl longing for a life of love. Ella, unlike most girls, longs for freedom and independence. She is given the "gift" of obedience at birth by the renegade fairy Lucinda, and while she has a fairy godmother, only Lucinda can undo the spell. This "gift" instead of causing Ella to become docile and meek, instead brings out her spunk and spirit causing her to become more of a rebel than anything. While she must obey direct commands, she tries to hold out against them as long as she possibly can and more often than not finds ways to evade the instructions so that another, more direct order will have to be issued.

Like the classic Cinderella story, there is a Prince, step-sisters, and a horrid step-mother. However, by having Ella and Char, the Prince, get to know and befriend each other before any aspect of "love" come into play and by not focusing on Ella's physical attributes, but her personality, the eventual romance between the two is much easier to believe. While the stepsisters are horrid and do awful things, Levine gives them each a distinct personality. Her characters seem to dance with life and none so more than Ella herself.
