The Two Princesses of Bamarre


Sisters Adelina and Meryl, princesses of the kingdom Bamarre, are more than siblings: they are best friends. Addie, the shy, timid princess depends on Meryl, the bold, adventure-loving, and brave sister for almost everything. And the two sisters love each other more than anything in the world. So when Princess Meryl falls ill under the Gray Death, Addie knows that she can't just sit around and watch her beloved sister die. So, armed with magical items that will aid her on her journey, Addie sets out on a bold adventure, seeking the cure for the Gray Death that could make her sister well again. Along the way, Addie encounters elves, specters, ogres, fairies, dragons, gryphons and more terrible creatures with whom she'll have to have courage and determination to get away from them alive. But time is running out, and if Addie doesn't find the cure, then Princess Meryl will die...
Gail Carson Levine has written another fantasy masterpiece! Readers will eagerly be at the edges of their seats as they flip the pages of this beautifully written, fast-paced novel. A must-read for those who enjoy the genre, ages 8-12.

Wow I love this book except the gryphons and dragon are really scary. I couldn't wait to see what happened to Addie and if Meryl died or not. Gail Carson Levine is such a good author!

Hi Readers!
Yes, "The Two Princesses of Bamarre" is a fantastic novel. I loved reading how Addie battles her way to the cure-and all for her sister, too. Yes, Gail Carson Levine wrote many other books including Ella Enchanted: Dave At Night, Fairest, The Wish...her newest book, Ever, came out earlier this summer.
Best wishes,
Bookworm
