Product description


A fresh approach to the traditional princess story with unexpected plot twists and great emotional resonance (Newbery Committee 2006-12-01)

Plenty of suspenseful moments that peak and fall, building into the next intense event. Each girl's story is brought to a satisfying conclusion, but this is not a fluffy, predictable fairytale, even though it has wonderful moments of humor. Instead, Hale weaves an intricate, multilayered story about families, relationships, education, and the place we call home (School Library Journal, starred review)

There are many pleasures to this satisfying tale: a precise lyricism to the language and a rhythm to the story that takes its tropes from many places, but its heart from ours . . . an unalloyed joy (Kirkus, starred review) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
