Christina Farley Hey! It's listed for ages 8-12, but I would say 4th-6th graders would probably be perfect for it.

I would say neither. :-) It's a high action/adventure story. There are some parts a little scary in that there are evil wolves, an awful stepsister, and annoying fairies. But there are other parts that are just fun and romantic in that its a princess book set in a real French castle. If you've read my Gilded series, you'll find this book with a similar style, but without the kissing. :-) (Although I am a fan of kissing. Not frogs though. That's kind of gross.)(less)

What an amazing, fun read! Kiera is a high-spirited, imaginative, and strong MC with a voice that drew me in from the very first page. Part contemporary fairy tale, part mystery with a healthy dose of adventure, this book is perfect for boys and girls who love fast-paced adventure laced with humor and characters that stick with you long after you've closed the book. I devoured it one sitting.

The Princess and the Page is a magical mystery that combines an intriguing glimpse into French history with imaginative sleuthing skills fit for any modern day Nancy Drew.

I don’t normally review children’s or middle grade books on my blog, but when I heard that Christina Farley had one coming out, well, she’s one of my go-to authors. Somehow she always manages to put a twist on history, folklore, and culture to make it captivating for any reader, i.e. her Gilded series, which is AMAZING. I am s

Wow! What a story! I didn't know what I was getting myself into when I picked up this book. I thought it was another blah blah book about princesses and I was going to puke sparkles somewhere, but it wasn't about that at all! I'm very much looking forward to seeing if Ms. Farley would write a sequel to this story. Word Weavers are very special people who have the ability and drive to write stories - the only thing is that their stories become real and if they enter their own fairy tale, the char ...more

I read an ARC of this fantasy-adventure, and middle grade students will enjoy following Keira's travels to a French castle where she finds herself involved with the castle's haunted past.

Shelves: children-s, 2016, yrc, arc
An uneven fantasy story full of plot holes, bratty kids, nonsensical parents, unanswered questions, and a weirdly sluggish pace. Skip this one, although a kid with a penchant for fairy tales, writing, and exploring haunted French castles would enjoy this one. No crossover appeal, however, and poor execution.

It's an interesting story about a girl who wants to tell all the stories she can. She has an unexplainable desire to write, unfortunately her parents happen to have a rule.... she can't write, no pens or paper are allowed in the house. And if her mother ever see her writing she gets very angry. So Keira doesn't get to write all those amazing stories. Until the day she found a mysterious pen hidden in her parents' things. Now whatever she writes, comes true.....
I quite enjoyed this adventurous ta

After teaching and traveling internationally for ten years, Christina started writing about her adventures, tossing in a little fiction for fun. This inspired her to write the Gilded series, a YA series based on Korean mythology, and THE PRINCESS & THE PAGE, a MG based on fairy tales.

Besides writing, Christina loves traveling, running, driving too fast, and eating dark chocolate.
