The Palace of Mirrors

The Palace Of Mirrors by Margaret Peterson Haddix

Quick Summery:
Cecilia has grown up all her life being told she is the true princess being protected by being in hiding while a fake princess rules for her until she can come out of hiding.She embarks on a journey to the Castle to confront her and release her form her duties when she has a couple of nears misses of being captured.With her best friend she is shocked to find out that she is not the only one who has been told she was the princess.10 other girls have been captured.Can she set them free and with the help of friends over throw the cruel government?

Romance:Ella(from Just Ella) traveled all the way form her country to be with Jed,Cecilia and her best friend Harper kiss at the end and there are hints of how they like each other.

Language:None that I can remember.

Violence:There are a couple fights but they aren't big parts in the books and not that violent.Cecilia is afraid at one point that they might have taken Harper off to fight in the War, but he is fine.

Other:She thinks once how it would be nice to lay next to Harper as a Husband and Wife do.

Time Period: Medieval but in another world.(I finally got it Rachael!)

5 out of 5 stars.It was an AWESOME books but one thing that I didn't like was that the bad guy is ruling for the princess on the the throne and is a bad guy.He tries to catch them and all that but they catch him.They don't go into it though.It is like some people are trying to get her,she finds out he is bad and then they catch him.He isn't a big part at all.

12 and up.
