He kept track of wherever Ella went in the ballroom her bronze curls picked up the light. When it finally came time for the tenth dance, he made his way to her. His father wanted him to choose Lavaliere for Prince's Preference, but he had to talk to Ella. When he reached her, she was standing with her family and the Shantungs. "Your slippers are beautiful," Chemise was saying. "What a lovely shape -- I haven't seen anything quite like them.""Yours are pretty too," Ella replied. "I like that shade of green..." She caught sight of Dash and her voice trailed off. Dash bowed and put out his hand. "May I have this dance?" he asked.

Horn Book Review

Ella will do anything to revolutionize the unjust garment factories that worked her mother to death--even forming an unlikely alliance with a prince struggling to recover from a curse and a fairy godfather who's almost forgotten how to care. Morrison's second fairy-tale revisioning (Grounded), here of "Cinderella," is bursting with originality and emotionally complex characters in a richly developed, nuanced world. (c) Copyright 2017.
