    " not a bad idea for a story but poorly written "

    " I enjoyed this book because it had great detail and was full of adventure from the start. It was about 13 young girls that were told from when they were babies that they were the true princess and that a commoner was at the throne to keep them safe. Once all of the girls decide to go to the castle and reclaim their throne... It gets confusing. All the princesses come up with a plan to decide which girl is the true princess by reading a letter written by the queen. At the end, they all find out that they were orphans adopted by the queen and her own baby died. To solve their problem, all the girls help rule the kingdom and everyone lives happily ever after. "

    " Palace of mirrors is another one of Margaret Peterson Haddix's amazing classics that I couldn't put down. I liked the atmosphere of it. It is a little like the past when kingdoms ruled. Cecilia is like any other peasant girl. She lives in a small house with her Nanny. The only different thing about her from any other girl is that she is actually a princess! Her parents were murdered and she was handed to one of the most trusted nights, Sir. Stephan. He taught her how to be princess so when the danger left the palace, the decoy, Princess Desmia, would give her her throne to the real princess. She and her best friend Harper are sent on a voyage. They choose to go to the palace, Harper has a harp that he is forced to play by his mam, but that harp might have more value than he thinks. Along the way there are traps, scares, and something that will change Cecilia's life forever; is she really the real princess, or has she been lied to? "

    " This is a YA book that reminded me of Gail Carson Levine's books. Very clean, enjoyable, and interesting. Great for adults or your own children. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kpennathur | 1/8/2014

    " The summary was really compelling especially since I don't usually venture in books that have princesses and things like that in them! "

    " cilinda is in danger .She is the true princess. I like this book because it is really realistick. Pluss I wantto be a princess. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Usako | 1/4/2014

    " I read halfway through the novel and its predictability had me close the book. I simply wasn't interested in dragging myself through the remainding pages. Afterwards, I learned about the ending and felt a little robbed of my fairy tale ending. All the girls rule? UG. That's a little disappointing. "

    " it had a lot of detail and i really liked it "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Wong | 12/15/2013

    " The book reminds me of the movie called Princess and the pauper. So similar and can't stop reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mackenzie | 11/18/2013

    " I thought that this book was ten times better than "Just Ella".... Ella was in this book too but I liked the way her character came across much more as a co-starish person. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 10/22/2013

    " Couldn't put it down. Kept me guessing until the end. If you love 'Shannon Hale' you'll love this. An interesting twist on a princess theme. Action, adventure, romance, mystery, something for everyone. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Siera | 10/18/2013

    " This book was just as good or better than the first! I love the new character and how the series portrays both sides of the war. The idea for this novel was witty and original! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Miss M | 10/2/2013

    " I thought it was stupid. was able to just skip thourgh the book and understand it. Haddix should not do any more princess stories, even if she wants to. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexis Jasso | 8/18/2013

    " I like the Palace of Mirrors for its interesting conflict that happens among several people that normally doesn't happens. "

    " another cute fun book. I would rate it a 3.5. I didn't enjoy it as much as the first, but maybe that is because I have a problem with skipping ahead. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Val | 4/19/2011

    " This was way better than Just Ella. Just Ella made me want to take a glass slipper and beat the offending characters into something that made sense. This one at least had a plot and a better ending. Still I like her mysteries and other series a bit better. "
