She loves whales. She has a guinea pig called Butterscotch. Her mum is in a coma in hospital while giving birth to her little half-brother Samson. Her step-father is Jack. She has a best friend called Sally. She is quite miserable because of her mum. In the end of the book her mum gets better.
Ella has shoulder-length light-brown hair which she nearly always wears pulled into two bunches behind her ears. She also has blue eyes and fair skin. She wears a pink and white striped dress and a pink cardigan.
Ella is a kind-hearted young person, determined yet ashamed at some times. However, this will not stop her from achieving her dreams.
