Author: Katie O’Neill
Series: N/A
Recommended for: Grades 3-6
Pages: 56
Call Number/Link:  GN J O’Neill, K (we don’t currently own, but other Pinnacle do)

Synopsis: When the heroic princess Amira rescues the kind-hearted princess Sadie from her tower prison, neither expects to find a true friend in the bargain. Yet as they adventure across the kingdom, they discover that they bring out the very best in the other person. They’ll need to join forces and use all the know-how, kindness, and bravery they have in order to defeat their greatest foe yet: a jealous sorceress, who wants to get rid of Sadie once and for all.

Join Sadie and Amira, two very different princesses with very different strengths, on their journey to figure out what happily ever after really means — and how they can find it with each other.

Review: I wish I loved this one more than I did. I adore the turning gender roles on its head, which this one does nicely. It also have excellent themes of friendship & heroism as well. I even adore Sadie and Amira, but I wish there had been more. At 56 pages there is very little meat to the story. It’s cute and sweet, but it’s very surface level. I just wanted MORE. I do think that kids will probably still enjoy it, especially if they like the twisted fairy tales. However, something like Princeless may be a better suggestion. I haven’t read it yet (it’s upcoming on my list), but it is much longer than this one and covers the same type of idea.
