Meet the upside-down fairy-tale princess! Raven Perilous is not nice because nice princesses get locked in towers. When Prince Charming shows up, Raven—who is not in distress—decides to show him who’s boss. This enchanting adventure, filled with magic forests and mystical creatures, will captivate fans of fairy tales everywhere!

This sounded like a lot of fun and when the book came in the mail, my daughter immediately claimed it for her own so I had to "borrow" it to read it. (Haha, I really love that my daughter enjoys reading so much.)

Raven's mom is a princess and her dad is an evil sorcerer. She has a twin brother, Edgar, who has their dad's evil sorcerer genes and Raven got the adorable princess genes. She doesn't want to be cute, though, and works hard not to be.

She has a friend, Amy, who's new to the area and insists on being Raven's friend no matter what she says or does. Then, a new boy shows up at school--Eric Charming, who makes all the girls sigh except for her, since she decides right away that he is her nemesis. Charming opens Raven's eyes to the magical people who surround her. When he reveals who he really is, though, Raven is shocked. They set out on an adventure and there are plenty of twists and turns and overall fun! 

I liked Raven! She's spunky, sarcastic and funny. She likes to take control of situations and sometimes it backfires on her. I liked her relationships with Amy, Edgar and Eric. There was some great dialog between all of them. I loved all the different fairytale references, too. This is a fun, adventurous read that I would highly recommend to middle-grade princesses everywhere!

Janice Sperry lives in Utah with her husband and three children and evil cat.  She enjoys volunteering at the local elementary school and is exceptionally good at finding missing shoes, unless they are her own.
