Jenna and her friend get invited to audition for a movie about a princess. Little does Jenna know, it's not actually for a movie.

Without telling her overprotective mother, she auditions. She makes it to the final round, not believing that she's been singled out and chosen above all the other girls in her town.

But instead of filming a movie, they take her out of the country to fill in for a real princess during her salute to the crowd during her birthday - so that the princess can enjoy her day in peace. She's still dealing with her grief over her father's death not two months prior.

While Jenna's auditioning, the real princess has escaped from her boarding school and is heading for safety. Political issues are cropping up and she knows that her uncle, the regent, will be siding on a very important issue. The two parts of the country are at odds: the southern half is wealthy and happy while the northerners struggle with poverty.

When the king was alive, he was working towards strengthening the country - together. But now that he's dead, things have gotten worse. The regent is going in the opposite direction.

The princess knows she's got to make a stand, but with someone standing in for her, how will she get the chance? Meanwhile, Jenna's beginning to figure out that something's not right, but she's not sure what's really going on.

THE PRINCESS PLOT is one part political drama, one part mystery, and one part fairy tale, all included in a very fun read.

Fun story, with lots of twists 30 mai 2009
Par Steven R. McEvoy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Reading a book in translation is always interesting, for questions will always arise in the back of your head. Is the original this good, is it better? Has something been lost in translation, but unless you read the original language also and can compare the two you just have to judge the book on its own? As such, this is an interesting story; it is the story of a plain girl Jenna, who one day after school is asked to audition to play a princess in a new movie. The talent scouts are set up outside her school, and she decided to defy her mother and audition. When the audition goes well she is asked to travel to meet the director for the final decision. There she is asked to play the real princess of Scandia, during her birthday celebration to see if she can really play the role - to give the real princess a day off.

However she soon realizes that things are not as they appear, from the real princess' uncle and Regent crying over her, to all the secrecy. Soon there are rebels and bombings and she is kidnapped. That's when the adventure really begins.

This story is wonderfully written. David Henry Wilson has translated many books into English and is an accomplished author himself. Between him and Kirsten Boie, they have told a fantastic story. The pace is well-done, the settings and characters are real and well portrayed, the scenes well laid out and the progression and the resolution entertaining and satisfying.

This book will make a great, fun summer read. It is light enough to be pleasure reading but serious enough to keep the reader entertained and turning the pages.

A lot different than expected 20 septembre 2009

I thought this would be a teeny bopper princess book but it wasn't! It was pretty intense and very suspenseful. It wasn't predictable at all which made it hard to put down because you had to find out what was going to happen. It wasn't light and fluffy at all with all the politics it talks about. I would love to read other books by this German author!

Can you imagine trying to escape from the countries most powerful leader? Jenna and her best friend Bea go to a movie audition after school. Jenna gets the role. She gets to the country the movie takes place in and it turns out it's a scam! Do you think she can get away in time before it is to late to save their country?

This book is great it has lots of twists and turns. The details create a vivid image in your head. The characters feel real and the dialog was amazing even though at some times it was unrealistic. Overall, this is a good read for you!

Must read 26 février 2012
Par Jenyfer G - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is one novel you won't quit in the middle. It has amazing imagery but the words are simple and you won't have to constitly be flipping through a dictionary. And if you like this book you'll love the sequel. I don't care how good at guessing you are, you will never know what is going to happen next.
