Ella Enchanted

Author: Gail Carson Levine
Reviewer: Grade 8

Ella Enchanted, is about a teenage girl named Ella. When she was born, a foolish fairy gave her a "gift": an obedience spell, which would force her to comply with any order given to her, whether it’s doing the dishes or chopping off her own head. With the help of Mandy, her fairy godmother, she finds a way to break the curse and marry Prince Charming. Ella Enchanted, although full of witty lines, is a sentimental Cinderella story, and as always in fantasy, good triumphs over evil and the heroine marries Prince Charming in the end. Out of 10 stars, I’d give Ella Enchanted 6 stars.
