Book: The Two Princesses of Bamarre Author: Gail Carson Levine Rating: Written for ages 11-14 Review:
This book and this author were favorites of mine in school. I read it so many times, that the pages are worn from where my fingers turned them. For lovers of fantasy, this book is a quick and fabulous read! Synopsis:
"Monsters plague the country of Bamarre, and the Gray Death kills even more each year. Princess Meryl longs to go off on adventures to vanquish the monsters and find the longed-for cure for the Gray Death, but her sister Princess Addie is very fearful and begs Meryl not to set off on her quests until Addie is married. But when Princess Meryl is struck with the Gray Death, it is up to the cowardly Princess Addie to find the cure. With the help of the court sorcerer Rhys and a few magical tools, she takes her quest against ogres, griffins, and dragons to save her beloved sister" (White Rose, Squeaky Clean Reviews).
