Summary (from Goodreads):
“Ever since she can remember, ten-year-old Violet and her mother have been locked away in a tower by the evil Queen Bogdana, who has the kingdom under her spell. The queen has everything she wants except for one thing — beauty. Violet possesses this beauty. She also has a secret: although she is very small, both her spirit and her heart are mighty.
When Violet is summoned by Bogdana to start training to become a real princess, it seems as if her life might be taking a turn for the better. But hope quickly fades when Violet’s mother is banished from the castle, and she and Violet are forbidden to see each other ever again. With everyone’s lives in the balance, it’s up to Violet to break the spell and reunite her family.”
Why I’m excited:
It’s a new Lisa Schroeder book. I have read all of her books and they are all brilliant and wonderful and heartbreaking and sweet AND I NEED ALL FUTURE BOOKS NOW PLEASE.
Also, this book sounds AMAZING and I cannot wait to give it to my goddaughter for her birthday. (Don’t tell her.)
