How can a fairy's
blessing be such a curse?
At her birth, Ella of Frell was the unfortunate recipient of a foolish fairy's gift -- the "gift' of obedience. Ella must obey any order given to her, whether it's hopping on one foot for a day and a half, or chopping off her own head! But strong-willed Ella does not tamely accept her fate. Against a bold backdrop of princes, ogres, giants, wicked stepsisters, and fairy godmothers, Ella goes on a quest to break the curse -- once and for all.
In this incredible debut novel comes the richly entertaining story of Ella of Frell, who at birth was given the gift of obedience by a fairy. Ella soon realizes that this gift is little better than a curse, for how can she truly be herself if at anytime anyone can order her to hop on one foot, or 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 quest to break the curse once and for all and discover who she really is is as sharply funny as Catherine, Called Birdy and as richly poignant as Beauty, and has all the marks of a classic in the making.
Publishers Weekly Review

Ella enchanted is a way more thrilling book than i was excpecting. I thought, based on the movie, that it was a true romance book, but it turned out as more of an exciting adventure. Now, i have currently read it four times. Not only is Ella a relatable character, but she is, what i think, a symbol, or expression, of what a modern girl her age would be like. If you are having doubts about weather or not to buy this book, let myreview please be the one to make up your mind.
I love this book, and the author. Any chance of getting her book, "Writing Magic" on iTunes as well?
I have read this book many times. Excellent story! Worth the read. You won't be disappointed
