I don’t know exactly what I was expecting when I started this small gift book, maybe a few laughs and a cutesy story. I definitely got more than I bargained for. This short story follows a princess who’s life seems to revolve around finding a Prince Charming to call her own. When her fairy godmother shows up, she’s overjoyed that she’ll be able to wish her Prince into reality. However, Godmother had a few things to say and told her that it wasn’t going to happen, that she wasn’t ready for her Prince yet and she needed to really think about what qualities she wanted him to possess.
This tale definitely has a valid point. I cannot recall all the times my girlfriends and I have bemoaned our love life status, bitching and complaining that either we can’t find a guy or that the one we’ve found is less than mediocre. Princess’s story is something that I don’t find often that puts the power into the hands of the heroine and says “hey, it’s not going to just fall into your lap. You’ve gotta work on yourself and then worry about Mr Right.” It may have been short, but it was well worth the read. I recommend it to everyone who is looking for a little magic in their life.
