Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine

5 stars

I love this book.  I had forgotten just how much I love this book.

This was a Great Reads for Girls pick, but we couldn't go that month and so Boo still hasn't read it.  Which is a shame, 'cause it's just so darn good.

And you know what?  I love the movie too.

Not because it at all resembles the book.  Because it really really doesn't.  But it's cute.  (Though if you haven't seen the alternate ending in the deleted scenes, you totally need to.  They really should have used it.)

I had forgotten, though, just how much more DEPTH the book has!  And how closely it follows the original Cinderella tale.

Overall, always recommended.  :)
