Diva Donna has some mad dog skills at being bold and asking for what she wants. Through this medium we Inkers obtained an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) of Jessica Day George's forth-coming book, "Princess of Glass". We saw Jessica at Dragons and Fairy Tales independent bookstore in Eagle Mountain.
Now I am not articulate like my fellow Inkers when it comes to reviews (hopefully they will give a more in-depth/critical/authoritative review of it at a later date). I got to be the first to read it because, well truth be told, I pouted. So here goes:
Princess of Glass is a super fun spin on Cinderella. Princess Poppy (she is one of the dancing princesses from Princess of the Midnight Ball) is 16 and sent off to Breton to ease relations after all the Princes died in the previous book. There she encounters adventure and more black magic.
I loved Poppy. She is smart, funny, and able to take care of herself. Strong female characters is one of Jessica's strong points!!!!! Poppy has her own adventure, and for a twin that is something special indeed.
I LOVED this book. I can't wait to pass it on to my daughter (who has to wait til all other interested Inkers have had a turn). The book comes out sometime in May . . . look for it at your local bookstore.
