This book is my all-time favorite book, I really love it. It is a very funny retelling of the classic story, Cinderella, but yet it is still very unique. There is this 15-year-old teenage girl, who is struggling to find out who she really is through the course of this story. Ella struggles with her "curse", she feels like it makes her into someone she's not. Others notice her "curse" and try to use it against her and she doesn't know how to fight it. And in the end we learn, that we are who we really choose to be, and nobody else can determine that.
Here are some of my favorite quotes from this book:
- “I wished she’d never stop squeezing me. I wished I could spend the rest of my life as a child, being slightly crushed by someone who loved me.
- “It is helpful to know the proper way to behave, so one can decide whether or not to be proper.”
- “I want to be with you forever and beyond...”
