Just Ella by Margaret Peterson Haddix
Just Ella is about Ella after she marries Prince Charming. At first, Ella thought living with royalty would be fun, but after awhile, she realized it wasn’t what she thought it would be. Every day consisted of lessons on how to become a proper princess. On top of that, Prince Charming wasn’t what she had thought he was, either. He was all brawn and no brain, and every visit with him brought Ella more agony. Finally she decided to run away to find Jed, her young history teacher who went to help the war refuges, but she got caught and thrown in the dungeon. Not giving up, she decided to tunnel out. Will she succeed? What will happen next? Read to find out.
