This book is so short it might be silly to do a whole review on it, but everyone has been talking about the book so I felt like it was due.  This a book that encourages girls to not only stand up for themselves, but also not to depend on a prince to take care of your problems for you!  I think there are some great messages in it that are valuable for all young princesses.

Rating: 4 stars!

Who should read it? All girls growing up!
