My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Actual Rating : 3.5 stars


a nice well-told retelling of the princess and the pea with some subsided retelling of cinderella story which was a bit different and i really did enjoy reading it .
the whole book is nice and it gave me warm fuzzies .

the story of alyssa who lost her way in the forest then found her self in front of the royal winter castle . the plot progresses and she is assigned the princess companion of the twin princesses .
i liked alyssa , she is nice and smart and she can read people well .
through all that there is also Max , prince maximilian ,who was an okay character .

and as the "pea" thing seemed a bit forgotten and it didnt affect the main story line , i think it was more of fairy tale of its own than a re-telling

but above ALL THAT there was this secondary re-telling of cindrella , the queen's story which i really liked .
someone would say , who can think of a life like that for cindrella ! who can expect after the And They Lived Happily Ever After sentence we watched dozens of times in the Disney movie ?
I Did .
this insta-love thing was never comfortable for my perception even as a child .
i always thought who knows ! what if he hates mouses while she loves them !
Yeah ! dont look me this way XD! I was but a child by then .
so with this re-telling i felt Sad , but i also felt like someone is respecting this one unconsidered possibility .

all in all , it was pretty nice light read .
