Disenchanted: The Trials of Cinderella (Tyme #2) by Megan Morrison

DisenchantedCan I just say that I am a Megan Morrison fan!  I read her fractured fairy tale version of Rapunzel last year and was waiting for her next book to come out.  Imagine my thrill when I saw it land on our newly arrived shelf.  Disenchanted is fabulous! I'm going to tell you just a few reasons why I liked it. I don't want to spoil it for you!
  • Meet Ella.  She is passionate, smart, determined, angers easily but has a big heart.
  • Great family.  Even though she has a stepmother, she's not the evil kind that we are used to in fairy tales.  Plus her step siblings (a boy and girl in this Cinderella version) are way cool.
  • Fairy godfathers!
  • A handsome prince with a loving mother.  While he has LOTS of money, he is not conceited and spoiled (unlike some of the other characters).
  • Focuses on the different socioeconomic classes and questions what is right and fair.
  • Deals with bullying.
  • Boarding school setting.
  • Story is told from three points of view (really liked this part).
  • Great courtroom drama!
  • A visit from Rapunzel
  • Just a great world.  The end leaves you guessing on the topic and heroine for Tyme #3!
