Size: 272 pages, hardcover
Genre: YA Fantasy
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.
I cant' wait to read this! Jessica's books are all fabulous and I'm excited to see Poppy again and follow her story.
I can't wait! I totally love her other books. She is such a wonderful story teller.
I loved all of her YA books. Dragon Slippers is the best! I can't wait to get my hands on this book!
I just finished reading this book today! It was a really fun read. It is sort of a retelling of the Cinderella story. I liked the fact that the sequel included another retold fairy-tale, as the first one was a retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses. It will be interesting to see if she does another sequel to this one.
Delightful! I really enjoyed this take on a well known fairytale. I thought the carry over of a few characters from Princess of the Midnight Ball was clever.
I'd recommend this to anyone who likes fairy tales or fantasy.
