Re-read of Princess of Glass by Jessica Day George

Princess of Glass by Jessica Day George

Summary from Goodreads:
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.

Re-read October 2012

My Review:
Jessica Day George has a new book expected to release on December 11, 2012 called Princess of the Silver Woods.  In anticipation of this next book coming out, I have re-read Princess of the Midnight Ball and now Princess of Glass.

I didn't enjoy this book as much as Princess of the Midnight Ball, but it was another fun, and different, retelling of a familiar fairy tale.  This is a Cinderella story with its own twists and turns.  I had no idea what was going to happen next.  In this re-read I was grateful to realize that Poppy, the heroine, is very strong and a worthy role model.  

I look forward to reading this next book and seeing what Jessica Day George has in store for another fairy tale!

Warnings: None

I would let my 14 year old daughter read this book.  She has read it and enjoyed it very much.
