The Two Princesses of Bamarre *****
By Gail Carson Levine
ROMANTIC AFFAIRS ***/****
MYTHICAL/SUPERNATURAL CREATURES ****
This is a really cute book. Again, a very girly book, so boys will probably not enjoy it. Princesses Adelina and Meryl are total opposites. Princess Meryl loves to fence and make battle plans, and longs to go on a quest herself, but she is bound by an oath she made with her sister to stay at home until her sister is wed. Princess Adelina loves to stay indoors and sew. She is terrified of the most simplest things and relies on her sister, Meryl, to protect her. But when Meryl gets a deadly disease, Adelina must face her fears and go on a quest to find a cure for her sister.
