Book Review The Rebel Princess by Janice Sperry

The Rebel Princess

I really really loved this book. I read it as an advanced reader copy and then went out and preordered it as soon as possible so I could own the actual print book. Such a cute story. Clean, creative, funny, entertaining. I'm a grown woman and still loved this young main character and want my kids to read this book.

Raven is a princess. Daughter of a princess who was saved from a tower by an evil sorcerer who fell in love with her mom and they escaped to the real world. She has a twin brother who is considered the evil twin because he can use magic and takes after the dad. Raven doesn't want to be a damsel in distress like her mother had been. She wants to be evil like her brother, who really isn't evil, and then we meet Prince charming who had been trapped in time by Raven's father after he was supposed to have rescued Raven's mom from her tower. Now Prince Charming thinks he has to come save Raven so he can get back to his magical world, but then we find out there are fairy godmother's who don't really do a lot to help but more to add extra problems and entertainment.

Overall, it's just really cute, with fun twists and creative license and bending and blending some of my favorite fairy tales out there. I never once guessed what was coming and was pleasantly surprised by all the fun things brought out in this story. Very cute. Perfect for young or young at heart readers. I highly recommend it.
