    " Pretty Good!! I enjoyed the book, a quick read but a pretty good story. I read it in two nights "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jo Davidsmeyer | 2/13/2014

    " Loved the story. Strong writing, inviting characters. Alas, probably has zero appeal for boys. Girls will love it. The invented pseudo-medieval world is especially well created. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathryn Rose | 2/13/2014

    " Oh my goodness! So good! If I was expecting a disappointment, I didn't get it! So many twists&turns! Absolutely loved it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy Jermasek | 2/9/2014

    " I read this book in one night and loved it! Then I gave it to my friends 13 year old daughter and she read it in one night and loved it too....how many books can you say that about? A 40-something mom and a 13 year old teen loving the same book? Must be good! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Billie Cox | 1/24/2014

    " I enjoyed this read. I thought I had the plot figured out and was surprised in the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Josephine | 1/20/2014

    " What a fun book! This was full of surprising twists and turns and a little bit of humor too. I really enjoyed it and couldn't put it down because every chapter ended in a bit of a cliff hanger or something unexpected. I have a hard enough time putting down books that aren't half as fun as this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roner | 1/16/2014

    " A perfect fairytale! A wonderful and strong heroine and a handsome kind hearted hero. Just enough romance in a great adventure story. I will read anything Julie Berry writes:) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alex | 1/6/2014

    " Straight fluff fairytale you can read in about two hours. No deep thoughts here, shallow/superficial characterization, everything happens ASAP. Good for a little pick-me-up if you need it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy | 12/22/2013

    " I liked it. It's an interesting fantasy read. Not quite as developed as some of my other favorite books but I still enjoyed reading it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 MiriLou | 12/15/2013

    " A sort of Cinderella remake with a bit of a science fiction twist. A little odd to me, but overall I liked it. The main character goes through a lot of tough times and it would have been nice to see more development between her and her love interest especially during the ending, but that's just me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessie | 12/6/2013

    " This was exactly my kind of book: fairytale, romance, magic. I just was not satisfied with the ending. With a different ending it could have been a 5 star book to me. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gretchen | 11/29/2013

    " Not especially memorable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Audrey | 11/28/2013

    " I really loved this book. It was full of the whole fairy tale scheme, which I am terriably addicted to. I wish Berry did the ending a little better, but besides that, perfect! I sure hope tere is a sequel! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 ♣Bel♣ | 10/22/2013

    " This is one of the best books ever written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stacey | 10/12/2013

    " fun, quick read........ "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marisa | 10/8/2013

    " This was a good book that tells the story of love and magic. It was quite a bit different from what I normally would read, but it was still good. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachael | 9/18/2013

    " A fairly good fantasy book. It's light hearted and has elements of other well liked fantasy books. I'd recommend it to girls who especially liked Ella Enchanted. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Natalie | 7/20/2013

    " "Cinderella" retelling of sorts. Painfully lame. I don't think I would have wanted to finish it as a young adult either. I have to add that I was listening to this on audio, so that may have added an element to the dislike factor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katies Cake | 6/17/2013

    " This was a fun light hearted book. Many witty lines. A little predictable ending but still a fun fantasy princess tale.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellen | 11/2/2012

    " Very sweet retelling of a fairytale. It was a clean and fun read. I really enjoyed it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 at | 3/5/2012

    " The book had promise in the start but the more it progressed it became increasingly incoherent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Madeleine | 1/10/2012

    " I got half way through this book but then had to force myself to stop. I am trying to save books for the summer so I don't get bored. It was hard to put this one down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tricia | 11/16/2011

    " Overall a pretty good book. Definitely a quick read and would probably read again sometime. If you like Beauty by Robin McKinley or Ella Enchanted you should read it "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lucy | 9/27/2011

    " Awesome book and the author is really nice- I got to meet her! In this story- my favorite character was Peter. But- to be honest- I really didn't the ending. I felt like it ended too suddenly. Secondhand charm is a better story- but I like the characters in this book better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maddie D | 6/9/2011

    " very well written. liked it a lot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kris-10 | 5/14/2011

    " This book was an enjoyably fast and light paced read! It kept you guessing till the very end. And even though I was rooting for Peter, I liked how things turned out between Lucinda and George! :)) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amber | 4/18/2011

    " I loved this book. It was really drawing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sara | 4/17/2011

    " Fair book for middle school or junior high age girls.

    I was quite disappointed that a thief is what was considered the best person to run the kingdom. What does that teach our children? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mackenzie | 4/13/2011

    " it had promise but than it went a weird way and i didn't like the ending she so should of ended up with Peter who she had experiences with and not the not anymore prince who we feel like we barley knew. Moreover what in the world was this about? I still feel like i have questions. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daftwullie | 4/10/2011

    " Definitely worth reading if you're a 10-12 year old girl. Worth reading if you're a grownup traveling or with time to kill. Nice, but not a gem. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ana | 4/7/2011

    " Really cute story with its fairytale twists, mainly for teenagers of middle school years. Took me a little under 3hrs to read. Would have been 5 far star book for me had it not been for the predictable and what seemed to be rushed ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 3/29/2011

    " World building is again an issue here. A medieval setting, complete with Catholic Church, and a fantasy element thrown in -- in this case, a being from another world, without any particular world building associated with her, as far as I can tel. "
