Kii (kiilovesyou) | 2 comments It's a Cinderella-type/Fairy tale-type book and I can remember that they're was always something about "green walls with Gold drawings and detailing?"
I'm having a hard time remembering the name.

The girl ends up in a land and meets a prince?

Rebecca | 71 comments Was it a young adult book? It sounds a little like I, Coriander by Sally Gardner.

Jessica (jessdaygeorge) | 177 comments I'd agree with I, Coriander. It's set in England right at the time of Cromwell and the Puritan movement. Coriander's mother is from Faerie, and she goes there and meets a prince. The cover is also dark green, with gold patterning, and a picture of a blond girl, 16th century stylized, holding several objects.

Juliet the Book Slayer Def "I, Coriander" :)

Kii (kiilovesyou) | 2 comments Thank you! I know i've gotten back a bit late!
I, Coriander is correct. I remember reading it when I was much younger, probably 7th grade-ish.
