I'm usually up for a retelling of a fairy tale, and Ella Enchanted was a great one! It's the classic Cinderella tale slightly modified. This is another one written for a younger reader, but I really liked it.
In this version, Ella is cursed by a foolish fairy so she has to obey anything someone asks her to do. Obviously, this is a problem when the evil stepsisters figure it out. And then the story builds from there as she tries to sort out her life. I liked the way Ella wasn't just a helpless pretty needs (a la Disney), but actually solves her own problems. Definitely a fun read!
