PRINCESS OF THE MIDNIGHT BALL, by Jessica Day George

ImageThe story: Rose and her eleven younger sisters are doomed to spend their nights dancing in the palace of the evil King Under Stone unless someone can free them from his spell. No one expects that a common soldier will be able to do it–but after all the “available” princes try, and end up dead, there’s no one else to take on the task. Will Galen be able to outfox the King and win the hand of Princess Rose? Jessica Day George takes on a famous fairy tale and gives it new life in Princess of the Midnight Ball.

Mrs. Friend says:  For girls only! If you like Shannon Hale’s Books of Bayern, or Gail Carson Levine’s or Alex Flinn’s fairy tale updates, take a look at this and others by Jessica Day George.
