ABOUT THE BOOK
CHRISTINA FARLEY is the author of the bestselling Gilded series. Prior to that, she worked as an international teacher and at a top secret job for Disney where she was known to scatter pixie dust before the sun rose. When not traveling the world or creating imaginary ones, she spends time with her family in Clermont, Florida with her husband and two sons where they are busy preparing for the next World Cup, baking cheesecakes, and raising a pet dragon that's in disguise as a cockatiel. You can visit her online at ChristinaFarley.com.
Twelve year old Keira is a Word Weaver...but she doesn't know it. Word Weavers have the power to bring stories to life and when Keira uses her grandmother's magical pen to write a story for a fairy-tale writing contest (something her mother strictly forbids her to do), her not so happily ever after fairy-tale starts to come to life around her. Keira, her BFF Bella, and Keira's mom find themselves in a gorgeous French castle and in the middle of a dangerous fairy-tale adventure.
Christina Farley's The Princess and the Page is a fast-paced, enchanting middle-grade book full of exciting adventure meets fascinating history, a lush setting, likable characters, and sparkly swirly whirly magic...which is definitely the best kind of magic!
Told from Keira's plucky and witty POV, The Princess and the Page will easily draw young readers in and captivate them with its whimsical imagination. Readers will love the idea of Word Weavers and magical pens and appreciate the great power their words and stories hold. Like any great fairy-tale, The Princess and the Page has a princess (of course!) in distress, a wicked villain, a few brave heroines and a sort-of prince charming, fabulous clothes, and a grand setting. With its breathtaking architecture, secret passageways, and delicious secrets, the beautiful castle Keira and her friends find themselves in makes for the picture-perfect setting.
Readers will adore the three main young characters - brave Keira, interior design extraordinaire Bella, and up for anything Chet - and will have a blast exploring the castle with them, uncovering a few mysteries, and maybe even facing a few ghosts! Farley takes her three heroes and readers on a twisty-turny journey that ends, like any respectable fairy-tale should, with a grand and unforgettable ball!
Magic, mystery, and a bit of fun mayhem...this story has it all. Readers won't be able to resist The Princess and the Page's fantabulous cover and won't be able to put it down once they start reading it!
