Title: The Goose Girl
Author: Shannon Hale
Genre: YA Fantasy
Alerts/Warnings: Some violence
Premise: On her way to marry a prince she's never met, Princess Anidori is betrayed by her guards and her lady-in-waiting and must become a goose girl to survive until she can reveal her true identity and reclaim the crown that is rightfully hers. (King County Library System)
Opinions: This is a retelling of the fairy tale The Goose Girl. Shannon Hale took this unremarkable story and stretched and improved it to a glowing and intruiging tale of one girl's personal growth into the fabulous woman she always wished to be. It has action, magic and a beautiful love story.
I picked this book up when I was working for a book store on the day it was released. I needed something to read. I read it twice in two days. I immediately started plugging this book and have recommended it to many many people. This is an amazing book. One of my favorites. I've read it at least a dozen times and probably more. I just keep going back to it. I hope you love this FabulosuRead as much as I do.
