Princess of Glass by Jessica Day George

Princess Glass.jpgDid you ever notice how many fairy tales feature shoes?

The princess who once danced her shoes to tatters ever night never wants to dance again.  Unfortunately, so many princes died trying to rescue her and her sisters from their dire fate that the entire next generation of monarchy is stuck – who will marry for treaty alliances? So Princess Poppy visits her cousin in England/Briton, and there’s a prince.

There’s another girl, who looks remarkably similar to Princess Poppy, who went from riches to rags and resents it.  And has a fairy godmother, who lives in a glass palace.

I don’t think it’s a spoiler to say that Miss “Riches to Rags” goes back from “Rags to Riches.”  She will marry and live happily ever after.

But it does not turn out the way you think…
