Ella Enchanted

Hate following rules? Spare a thought for Ella. She’s cursed to obey any order she’s given. Can she ever break free? Any fairy tale needs a good princess. But how good is good? At her birth, Ella of Frell (not a princess, more’s the pity) was given an ill-chosen gift: the gift of obedience. She must obey any order given to her. She’d chop off her own head if you told her to. But Ella has a strong will. So – in a kingdom of princes, ogres, giants and fairy godmothers – she starts a quest to break the curse. Once and for all.
