Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine
Ella Enchanted is about a totally awesome girl with some unusual powers. She lives with her scary stepmother and mean stepsisters, but she doesn’t let that bring her down. We read through Ella’s life and how she was able to figure out who she truly is—and stand up to those who put her down in the process. We love Ella’s determination, loyalty and style.

This book takes us back to 1964 in South Carolina where
racism was at its height. We join Lilly Collins as she tries to break away from

died when she was 4 and Lilly is determined to uncover the truth. In this tale
of tragedy, friendship and love, we witness her transformation from a young
scared girl into a confident and determined young woman. (Editor’s note: be
sure to get your parents’ permission before picking up this book.)
