Princess Test
Princess Test
by Gail Carson Levine
Edition: Hardcover
Price: CDN$ 10.47
63 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars Test out this book, Aug. 6 2003
This review is from: Princess Test (Hardcover)
Gail Carson Levine creates a gently funny,and fun,tale of magic in the Princess Test,a book I recommend to females of all ages.It is a recreation of the Princess and the Pea.
Lorelei is a pampered but very sweet-hearted young girl and she becomes involved in a Princess Test to determine who will marry the prince of their enchanted town.She also has to endure quite a few other hiccups(oh,and rashes and sore throats and fevers!!!!!) ,as her somewhat finnicky nature makes people detest her,most namely her new nanny who plans to kill her.Preferably by taking her into the woods and leaving her there.Carson Levine likes to blend fairy tales together.Read Ella Enchantment for an amazing fantasy adventure.

4.0 out of 5 stars For All Seasons, Aug. 6 2003
This review is from: Invincible Summer (Paperback)
Rick and Robin are soulmates,but the tragedy is that they are both fughting leukemia...this book's going to make some people cry so be sure the tissue box is full and close by.
I almost gave this amazing story 5 stars.Only Jean Ferris' talk of God made me lower it...for the reason that I'm not too sure she likes Him.
Robin's virginity issue couldn't have been handled more tastefully.
Invincible Summer follows Rick and Robin's relationship through each of the 4 seasons.
This is a beautiful and gripping story but expect it to end with a question mark.

4.0 out of 5 stars I have to try and remember this one.., Aug. 6 2003
But I think I recall that it was pretty good.If that helps...
2 cousins(It is sooooooooooo twisted and gross that she had the hots for him)fall down a well and travel back in time to a castle that really exists.Don't ask me to remember it's name."The Hand" was a carving of a hand near the well.
By the way,...the girl on the cover was sooooo pretty,i couldn't believe it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Want More Books Just Like This One!, Aug. 6 2003
Aurora lives in the late 2000's!She is not exactly over the Earth when her family goes to live on the Moon!!!!!
An absolutely FUN novel with Danziger's interesting views of the future as written in the 1980's.
Linda M's own thought;The book involved robots,or at leat one robot whose job is school monitor.In the 1980's that is waht people looked forward to,a beyond 2000 with robots.Funnily,I believe robots are now OUTDATED!In my honest opinion,they were a thing of the 80's and ,well, just aint cool anymore!!

3.0 out of 5 stars This isn't BSC!!, May 8 2003
Well,it is a Babysitters Club book,but it really isn't worthy of this great series.Years ago I read my first,and what would be my final for a long time,BSC.This one.I don't recommend that Jessi and the Superbrat be your first BSC or else you will not understand what a terrific series this is.Because this novel,is really average compared to BSC standard.

3.0 out of 5 stars Crazy Stacey, May 8 2003
This review is from: Boy-Crazy Stacey (Paperback)
This isn't one of the best BSCs in my opinion but it's still cool as they all are.Stacey and Mary Anne are having a great beach vacation as Mothers Helpers for the peculiar Pike Family.I really love the Pikes.Who wouldn't be in that family!!?
Stacey is flirting with an older guy,or 2.

Bsc #1: Kristy's Great Idea

3.0 out of 5 stars Ann's Great Idea, May 7 2003
The first in a series I recommend!Bsc is a fantastic series with lots going on and plenty characters coming and going.It could never be boring.Ann Martin will become a role model to me as I try to forge my path in writing....There is a problem though.The same things about the club will be explained at the start of every book in the same detail each time.Like,do you think that maybe Kristy once saw her mother on the phone trying to get a sitter for little David and then thought wouldn't it be great if mothers could ring up and speak to lots of sitters and then she got the idea of the Babysitters Club..???????You will be told all about this in almost every book!!But really should I complain??Put up with that repetition and ,honestly, it's a terrific series,and you'll always wonder what will happen next.

This review is from: Fifteen (Paperback)
A 1950's novel by popular YA author Beverly Cleary which while a tiny bit daggy is also a page turner.Cleary took a very simple situation....a 15 year old girl gets her first boyfriend...and turns it into a long and extremely interesting story.
