Levine, Gail Carson. The Two Princesses Of Bamarre. 2001. (J Levin.G)
This book is about a girl who's sister catches a deadly disease called the Gray Death. Addie then leaves in search of the cure. She faces many adventures while searching. I think Addie is a very brave girl throughout the whole book even though she doesn't know it. The way she gets rid of the ogre and stabs the dragon show that she was very brave.I wish I was as brave as she was. I thought the ending was very stupid. I thought that Addie should find the cure and save her sister not have the fairies turn Mreyl into a fairy because she was to close to death for the cure to work. Turning her into a fairy was her only choice. I thought that was stupid. but other then that I loved the book. I would suggest it to everybody.(Caitlin W.)

I loved this book and i would suggest it to everyone.(Caitlin W.)
