In the “sequel” to the Cinderella story, Ella finds herself bored with castle life. Prince Charming isn’t as charming as she thought.  He’s boring, dull, and sort of mean. When she calls off their engagement, he throws a huge temper tantrum and has Ella thrown into the dungeon.  Cold, hungry, and mad, Ella tries to find a way to escape. She digs a hole through the floor of the dungeon and runs away. Can she make it without being caught? Will Ella ever forgive the Prince? Will the Prince ever become charming? Find out by reading the book, Just Ella.  (Jessica, student)
