My Review: 

  I am so happy I finally picked up this book. As a child the movie adaption was the only princess movie I actually liked/ would watch at all.

While there was a lot of differences between the two, I still enjoyed both even though it was slightly confusing at times. The one thing I didn’t like about the book though was that she hardly included Becky into her world. The only time she included her at all really was towards the end.

It was nice to see though that she did struggle with being good when she lost her riches and it wasn’t as easy to be nice and kind all of the time like she thought it was.


That ending though.. I liked the movie version of it better. The book ending was still nice and happy it just wasn’t what I was expecting.
