I read this book by Margaret Peterson Haddix about two weeks ago. I have loved every other book of hers, but this one was a HUGE disappointment. The plot was contrived and extremely predictable. The writing was elementary and did not add to the overall story. The love interest was bland and non-committal. Just two weeks later, I can hardly remember details other than the skeleton plot. I can’t believe I actually spent an hour of my life reading this.

I feel bad for the harsh review – I read her book The Found ( or something like that) about half a year ago and ADORED it. I guess the princessy book just isn’t my type.
