Description: Moxie is an obnoxious, teenage princess who has never been outside her father’s castle -- Until now. She finds the real world is quite different from castle life and she struggles to come to grips with reality. Moxie knows she has to get a life, but doesn’t know how to go about it. The story takes place against the backdrop of Camelot. But, it isn’t the Camelot of legends. It’s Camelot in a parallel universe, so all bets are off!

*This book was given for an honest review
Truth be told, at first I had low expectations for the book. I have to be honest, I don’t like the cover, and actually I despise the cover. But this book managed to prove me something really important “Never judge a book from the cover! NEVER”

The book had the most unique story ever written in the history. If you hate the usual stereotypes, then this book is written for you:
~ A beautiful, humble princess? Nope, Moxie is plain, and extremely annoying, but in the same time extremely true.
~ A hero? Yeah, right.
~ Wars? More like football/soccer games.
Yep, you heard that right. The kingdoms played football (soccer).
But there is something that remained in my heart. At some point Moxie understands that she wanted to be capable, and be the queen. Young girls are taught to make themselves look pretty, and find a good husband. But girls can achieve much more. I love it how Moxie understands slowly the importance of women in the society.
I disliked the use of dialects, because I couldn’t understand all of them.
I recommend this book to the ones, who want to read something fresh, and unique. This will blow your mind!

  1. Honestly...the cover is, indeed, HORRIBLE. What's that? a middle-aged bulky witch? She can't be Moxie, can she?!
    (I don't mean any disrespect to bulky people or middle-aged ones...now that I think of it, you might say I'm middle aged myself LOL...but frankly, what an ugly cover. I'm glad that the book was far better!).

    1. Yea... I don't like the cover, but the book was totally worth it!!!
