Cover ArtThe princess test
by Levine, Gail Carson
The Princess Test is one of the hilarious books in the series The Princess Tales. It is a re-write of the classic story of the Princess and the Pea, with a few funny twists, like all the books in the series. I would definetly recommend this book. Although it is short, its a delight to read till the last letter.   posted Jul 8, 2004 at 11:24AM

I thought the story was just a great example of irony. I mean, the son of a crime leader in the underworld dating the daughter of the FBI agent trying the hardest to jail the crime leader. It's a setup for something to happen.   posted Jun 26, 2005

I give this book an infinant number of stars!!!!   posted Feb 9, 2006

Cover ArtThe raging quiet
by Jordan, Sherryl
I absolutley loved this book. I'm not quiet sure exactally what time this book was set in, but I know it has to be somewhere around the 1500's. It is about a young girl of 16 who is forced into a pre-arranged marriage to save the rest of her family. Her and her wealthy new husband (three decades older than her self) move into a remote village. He dies right after they move there, and she is forced to be widowed and alone. With the help of the town priest, and his friend "the mad boy", Marnie finds out the trials of living by herself. I couldn't put this book down, it was very captivating, and I loved the ending.   posted Aug 20, 2004
