Fairy-tale Party Day three: Princess of Glass


Hoping to escape the troubles in her kingdom, Princess Poppy reluctantly agrees to take part in a royal exchange program, whereby young princes and princesses travel to each other's countries in the name of better political alliances--and potential marriages. It's got the makings of a fairy tale--until a hapless servant named Eleanor is tricked by a vengeful fairy godmother into competing with Poppy for the eligible prince. Ballgowns, cinders, and enchanted glass slippers fly in this romantic and action-packed happily-ever-after quest from an author with a flair for embroidering tales in her own delightful way.

My Review: 

As with all of Jessica Day George's work, this tale is beautifully spun in a web of magical imagery and dialogue. A fun spin on Cinderella that is something completely new and different. 

I love every page of this book. It keeps you reading, wondering, and the ending is just as wonderful! 
And I love that this series takes a princess from the first book that you have already come to know and love and throws her in a fairy-tale of her own!
