Well, here is my first review.
Palace of Mirrors by Margaret Petterson Haddix.
Cecilia is given to a nanny after her parents died, living in a remote village. As she grows up, she was told that she is the true princess of Suala, and she believed that she was all throughout her life. There is a “fake” princess at the castle, as a protection to Cecilia.
Her best friend is a boy named Harper, who is being given harp lessons by his mother.
At fourteen years old, Cecilia and Harper decide to go to the castle, to tell the “fake” princess, Desmia, that Cecilia is ready to take her place in the castle.
But, things don’t go as planned. Many dangers arise for the two friends, and for several others in the kingdom.
This book is recommended for girls ages 12 and up.
In my opinion, the book was pretty well written. The characters are believable for the setting and time they are in. I would definitely recommend this book to those who like princesses, and fairy tales.
For a while now, I have been thinking of writing reviews on here, of restaurants, books, movies, music, and other things. I have decided to do that every Friday.
Others can suggest things for me to check out, and I will watch/read/listen to/visit and write about my experiences.
So, if anyone has any suggestions for things for me to check out, feel free to message me, and I’ll be happy to try them!
I heard that you have been getting some negative comments about your father’s death. You do not deserve that.
Your father was an amazing man; loved by many. He will surely be missed by his fans, whom I can proudly say I am one.
Those that are giving you all this negativity are ignorant people, who aren’t worth your time and energy.
I know how it feels to lose a parent. My mom died almost four years ago, and I miss her very much.
Stay strong, and you will get through this. There are lots of people out there who truly cared for your father, and surely care for you as well.
