The Princess Games by Danai  Kadzere
The Princess Games

3 out of 5 stars

Emma and Laralyn are two peasant girls, one beautiful and one plain. When the King and Queen decide to adopt a Princess, the girls become contestants in the Princess Games to win a place in the royal family. Emma is sturdy, clever, and hard-working. She only cares about the food. Laralyn is dainty, demure, and determined to win. She only cares about pleasing her money-loving mother. How can they compete with the dozens of other girls who all want to be the new Princess?

This book has a delightfully silly story with loads of hilarious characters! I loved the wit of the writing and the funny plot line. The characters are quirky, and I liked the twists and turns in the plot. It’s a simple fairy-tale story, and the style is just right for readers ages 9-15.

However, this book is in desperate need of a good copy editor. There were punctuation errors, grammar and spelling errors, incomplete sentences, and a dozen other problems with the writing. The story itself is good, and the writing style is delightful. With a good editor, this book could be really enjoyable, but trying to wade through all the mistakes got on my nerves.
