Princess Patricia is bored of her life, but it is only when she borrows clothes from her chamber maid and poses as a student at the village school that things get interesting. She finds a purpose in her life more than what she had, however, she must return to reality, as her 16th birthday and ball is coming up, where she must choose between three terrible suitors whom to marry.

A fun, quirky, quick read with a great message. I enjoyed it and think my daughter will really like it as well. The only thing that bothered me where the illustrations scattered throughout the book, because although they matched the quirkiness of the story, for me they detracted from the picture in my head.
