Ripped straight from her "Rhetoric of Fairy Tales" class at UT is Jenna Bush's re-working of Cinderella. It chronicles the adventure of Chanderalla of Harlem. If you go back to the originating UT site, you can see that the "Student Project" link has been disabled, but somebody snagged it before it went down. I guess this class is the new version of "kiddie lit" that everyone was taking to get an English credit out of the way... I hope she runs for president some day.

Once upon a time in the outskirts of Harlem lived a young woman named Chanderalla. Chanderalla was very beautiful. She had dark skin and hazel eyes and black long hair.

Her precious mother who had taught her to read and write died when she was only eleven. She and her father lived alone in their apartment for several years until her father told her he was looking for a new wife. He said, "Chanderalla I loved your Mama. But a man gets lonely without a woman to love."...
