Here we have the most interesting tale of a true miracle in our time. It is the best story of true love and eternal partners I have ever read. It portrays a miracle so special that it will leave you awed and humbled. It is simply a book about a young woman’s faith to make a miracle (more…)

The Princess Sisters by Stacy Lynn Carroll a review.

Saturday, July 2nd, 2011
This is a truly enchanting tale, well written and with great imagination. It is a coming-of-age book full of real life situations. It is an easy read, the characters are well defined and they could be any of our kids. The many real life experiences the characters live are so aligned with reality that you may think this is a biography instead of a fictional novel. It teaches many needed life skills for young men and women alike.

Five girls, related to each other and of the same age, are given the names of five princesses. Cinderella, Snow White, Aurora, Ariel and Bell. This should please them to no end, especially being as their last name is Princess. However, the girls do all in their power to have nothing to do with their cartoon counterparts.

They live next door to each other and have been friends since they were born. Because of this they don’t have friends outside their family. Their lives could be harder if it were only one girl with a princess name. Instead they have been good so far except for the pesky teasing they get from everyone in school. That all changes when a handsome young man moves in across the street from the girls. They became fast friends and do everything together during the summer.

Now the princesses are ready to go to High School and become somebody different than princesses … that is until a horrible witch discovers their secrets and makes them public. On the first day of school they find out that life will be quite miserable for them, as they are called names and made fun of by all the other students. Being bullied in school was just raised a notch higher. Life is hard enough without having to live in fear of High School.

The princesses at first don’t know what to do, but one of their fairy grandmothers gives them an idea. From that moment on they work together to change the view the rest of the students have of them. Will this last resort work for them?

This book is entertaining, a page-turner, and a great clean read for Young Adults and their families alike.
