That fool of a fairy Lucinda did not intend to lay a curse on me. (from the first line)
Since her birth, Ella of Frell has been the unfortunate recipient of an addled fairy''s gift--the "gift" of obedience. But spunky Ella does not tamely accept her fate and embarks on a quest to break this curse once and for all.
Annotation:
At birth, a girl named Ella is given the gift of obedience by a fairy. The fairy thinks she is doing a good deed because all children should be obedient, but she doesn't realize that her gift is really a curse because now Ella has no choice but to follow every command given to her. As Ella grows up, the gift becomes more and more of a burden and places her, and those she loves, in dangerous situations. Because the fairy refuses to rescind her gift, Ella struggles to find a way to break the spell herself.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"This refreshing take on one of the world's most popular fairy tales preserves the spirit of the original but adds plenty of humorous twists and a spunky, intelligent female lead." 02/01/1997

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Levine leaves the familiar motifs intact--wicked stepmother, glass slipper, midnight curfew at the ball--but by establishing an easy, playful friendship between Ella and the prince which blossoms gradually into love, she offers readers with feminist sensibilities the assurance that life with Charmont (the prince you want to bring home to mother) will in fact be happy, ever after." - Elizabeth Bush May 1997
