Every little girl goes through her princess phase, whether she wants
to be Snow White or Cinderella, Belle or Ariel. But then we grow up. And
life is not a fairy tale. Christine Heppermann's collection of
fifty poems puts the ideals of fairy tales right beside the life of the
modern teenage girl. With piercing truths reminiscent of Laurie Halse
Anderson and Ellen Hopkins, this is a powerful and provocative book for
every young woman.
