This imaginative tale explores the eternal quest for true love, the peril of deceptive appearances, and having to make the best of your mistakes. In Ogre Enchanted, Gail Carson Levine returns to the world of Ella Enchanted with a new tale involving troublesome fairy Lucinda -- this time turning a young teen who doesn't want to get married into a monster. As protagonist Evie struggles with her new physical reality, which she may not be able to escape, readers will find her inner conflicts (such as simultaneously really loving people and really wanting to devour them) both intriguing and oddly relatable.
