I love Margaret Peterson Haddix books but I have hesitated to read Just Ella. I'm not a Cinderella fan.
I should have trusted my faith in Haddix. I started the book last night and could not put the book down until I finished it at two a.m. this morning.
I love the big themes of not needing a member of the opposite sex to complete you and knowing oneself. While in the time frame of when cinderella and this book were to have been set, I am not sure that the many women/girls would have been able to accomplish Ella's level of success. However, I do believe it is a great message for young ladies and gentlemen today, to think for oneself.
Do yourself a favor and read this book!
