Cinderella

Eleanoria Woodston has been forced for the last few years to live the life of a servant in her own home. Her stepmother and two step-sisters have been constantly unkind, taken all of the things that were left from her life with her parents and forced her to do all manner of work. One day, as she's getting the front stairs swept, she's spotted by Prince Anthony. Prince Anthony when he was younger would dress up as a commoner, call himself John, and join in the commoner races and Ella was the only person ever able to beat him in a horse race. The prince had wondered often just what had ever happened to his nemesis, so when he spotted her, he knew that he must talk to her. He's uncertain just why she was never presented to the kingdom as the daughter of a nobleman, and just why she's dressed as though she has no money. But Ella surprises him in that she refuses to say she remembers him, or their races even though she clearly does. He feels sad for her and tries to cheer her up by inviting her to the upcoming ball. Ella clearly wants nothing to do with a ball, and tries to refuse, but the prince will not give up. What will happen when Ella realizes that John is actually the prince in disguise?

This was a cute book. I love that Jenni James has written all of these fun versions of fairy tale stories that we all know. This one was so cute with the sweet Ella and handsome Anthony. I love that the stories are clean and also really quick reads. I was able to read this one in just an hour or two. I love that there was a bit of a secret in this book, and that Ella had to work to figure out just what the secret was. I can't wait to read more of Jenni James' fairy tales!
