Just Ella by Margaret Peterson Haddix

Everyone knows the story of Cinderella, poor oppressed step-child goes to the ball, meets the prince, falls in love, and lives happily ever after or does she? In this retelling of the classic tale price charming isn't so charming. Cinderella or as she prefers to be called Ella is an outdoorsy bookworm who has been trapped inside doomed to become a figure head princess. She thought happily ever after meant she would be happy, but she wouldn't not as long as she was going to be a princess.

This story shows that what you want isn't always what it's cracked up to be. Don't let others tell you what is best for you find your own path.
Even if you have to do something completely out of the ordinary and your comfort zone.
