A Pearl Among Princes
by Coleen Murtagh Paratore
It seems like when young girls come into the library wanting princess books that they have read them all. This is why I was excited to find A Pearl Among Princes. It has what girls want: princes, princesses, love and a surprise ending.
Pearl lives on the secret island Miramore. Not many people know about the island because it is where the Princes in Training (PIT) come to learn how to be princes. This means that all the girls that live on the island get to help the princes practice their good manners, dancing, courting and more. Also, there is a new law that princes don’t have to marry a real princess anymore. Pearl just really wants to get off the island and sees one of the princes as a way to do that. However, the biggest problem is that Pearl has loved a stable boy for almost her entire life. There are numerous princes that are vying for Pearl’s heart though. A great book for princess lovers!
