Teen Review Thursday: Quick Reviews

Just Ella 
Reviewed by Shun Yi 
Just Ella by Margaret Peterson Haddix is the retell of Cinderella with a twist. I liked it, because, instead of showing Cinderella as a helpless, poor girl who's always put down by her step-evils and was finally aided by her fairy godmother to the ball, Just Ella portraits Ella, a girl who’s not afraid to stand up to her stepmother, who’s very intelligent, and who saved herself at the end by taking control of her own destiny.

Princess Academy

This is a amazing book about a young girl who is in an academy to be a princess, but she is faced with harsh competition and a cruel events. When the princess academy is threatened, she must find a way to save her classmates from danger. This is a great book that I recommend to everyone.
