Review: Persnickety Princess by Falcon Storm

The Persnickety PrincessThe Persnickety Princess by Falcon Storm
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

To start, I'm going to say that this is not an easy review to make. Not that it was bad, but for the simple fact that it is lower grade, and I'm used to reading and reviewing YA or higher.

The book was pretty short, but full of laughter and things that stretched beyond my sensibilities, despite the fact that I usually lean more toward the supernatural and time travel books.
There were times when I was completely confused with the situation and didn't know what was going on because there were details.

Then I had to remind myself that I'm a seventeen year old who has been reading higher level books since 5th grade.

Its cute, its quirky, and I feel that every elementary and maybe middle grader should read it. Despite Princess Lavender`s childish behavior grating on my nerves, I actually felt pity for her and cheered her on by the end. After all, if you find a guy who suits your fancy, wouldn't you do anything at all possible to get his attention?

I felt the ending was quite rushed, but I'm pretty sure any young one wouldn't have too much trouble with that. I even giggled because it was so funny and awkward.

Overall, I'm happy that I decided to read this book. It was a silly, yet welcome, reprieve from my normal, stressful life, and I cant wait to pick up another book by Falcon Storm.

High up in the tallest tower of the purplest castle in the Kingdom by the Sea, Princess Lavender awaits rescue. Desperate as she may be, only the most dashing, well-dressed, properly mannered prince will do. Oh, and he must stand exactly four and three-quarters inches taller than her. A princess has got to have standards, after all.

When, finally, one such prince comes to her castle--not to rescue her, but her younger sister--Lavender refuses to be ignored. Instead of waiting for the next suitor to come along, she devises a plan to put herself in danger, thus forcing the upstart prince to forget her sister and rescue her instead.

Well accustomed to getting her way, there is only one thing, unfortunately, that this princess can't control--her luck. When her plans go awry, putting her in very real danger, will she allow the prince to rescue her as he sees fit? Will he even want to try?

And will anyone be able to find a way to rescue Lavender from her persnickety ways once and for all? Find out in this comedic tale of princes, dragons, and dreams that just may come true.
