Book Review: Princess of Glass




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.

I think this book may have been even better than Princess of the Midnight Ball! This one is a more indirect retelling if that makes sense. It tells the story of Cinderella from an outsiders perspective. It took the story of Poppy and intermingled it with the story of Cinderella, or in this case, Ellen the maid. 
The friendship between Poppy and Christian was sweet. Neither of them were really looking for someone to possibly marry, but they did happened to find a good friend within the other.
