Christmas Countdown--6 More Days to Go!

Today's highlight is a book that many of you may have never heard of, but will certainly want to!

Two Moon Princess, written by Carmen Ferreiro-Esteban, tells the story of Princess Andrea, who lives in a parallel world called Xaren. Discontent with her life, she wants to learn to fight with the other squires, not become a lady and as her distant parents demand. But even when her Tio Ramiro fails to convince her father, she is forced to learn to become a lady, and learn the finer arts of royal behavior with her elder sisters. Until she finds a portal that takes her to modern day California. Here, Andrea flourishes. She is convinced that this is where she is meant to be, and intends to stay forever. But when circumstances beyond her control force her to return to Xaren, along with a John, a boy who is not supposed to know her secret. Soon John is involved in a war that will surely tear her country apart--unless Andrea has the courage and strength of mind to put a stop to it all.

Headstrong, clever, and sometimes a little foolish, Princess Andrea is a character I fell in love with immediately. Fast paced, enchanting, and humorous, Two Moon Princess is definitely a book that you will not want to miss. Don't be fooled by the demure cover, this one headstrong princess's journey will make you wish that Andrea's story would never end as she learns that she can be a lady and still follow her heart.

This book is now available in bookstores.

This sounds really cool! I like when people review books that aren't terribly popular because then there's more of a chance you'll find out about something new. But there's also the problem of libraries not getting the less-known books. Like mine isn't. Oh well, maybe I can find it somewhere else.

My library has a suggestion box. You write the name of the book you would like to read and usually they get it for you.
