This week's question: What book influenced or changed your life? How did it change it?
Gail Carson Levine's Ella Enchanted was a big favorite of mine when I was younger (and still is, to be honest). It changed my life because it gave me a sense of the kinds of things I myself wanted to write. Ella is a really excellent character as well: She has a very strong sense of self, she's funny and observant, and she is literally fighting against a curse of obedience. Also, shout-out to Prince Charmont! It was one of those books where you want to read more exactly like it but you never really can find one to match it.
P.S. The movie version does not count in this, because that was effing terrible.
