This was a beautiful re-telling of The Princess and The Pea. The book was fantastic! It was the best re-telling I've read yet! For once the princess keeps her head on her shoulders and she isn't uber-sensitive or perfect in every way. Finally the princess is a normal girl put in a abnormal situation. This book brings realism and fantasy together in a creative mix. I also really liked that for once the contestants actually became friends. There was more then one main character. Overall it was a great book, one I'd recommend.
