Nalia, Sinda, Orianne or maybe someone else...Will the real princess please stand up?
A prophecy about the princess made 16 years ago changes the lives of many. A medieval fantasy tale set in the Kingdom of Thorvaldor with unexpected twists, magic and unfolding conspiracies.
In our lively discussion, the teens had mixed opinions. Jessica liked the story’s evolving changes. Meagan did not like the slow pace at the beginning. Madeline enjoyed when magic was introduced. Everyone thought the friendship between Sinda and Kiernan had a very sincere and powerful place in the story. The teens agreed that the various settings were well-written.
Our Book Club appreciated that the author, Eilis O’Neal was born, raised, and still lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
The False Princessis a stand-alone book.
The Newcastle Teen Book Club rated the book with 3 stars.
We ended the discussion with an interesting question, “What kind of magic power would you want?”
The Teens very much enjoyed making tiaras and crowns out of pipe cleaners, jewels and feathers. As always snacks and refreshments were included.
Please join us in September when our Newcastle Teen Book Club resumes. The book will be available for pick-up from the Library in August with the exact time and date of our first meeting.
