Review: I loved this story, Brier rose wants more than the boundaries of her current life, dreaming of exploring not yet understanding why she has these limits. Then she meets by chance a girl named Grace who is part of an acting troupe, together they find a way of switching and experiencing each other’s lives but trouble is always just round the corner.
I loved that Rose made a friend, having never met anyone new in her life it was something she dreamed of, Grace was just what she needed and she got a chance to learn so many new things because of her, have new experiences and see different things in her life and have a little bit of fun.
I found this book so enjoyable and fun, the drawings were beautiful as always and the story was super exciting and I loved seeing that she was able to branch out, getting a small extension of the life we know for Brier Rose, she had a little bit of fun as a child which is so sweet to read about.
I really loved meeting Grace she was so sweet and a perfect match for Rose, I liked that we got to learn more about Maleficent too which I wasn’t expecting to learn whilst reading so that was fascinating. This whole book was so incredible and a great addition to this Princess beginnings series.
If you love Disney and the princess’s then I do suggest you give this one a chance it’s really exciting, really fun and not all what you’d expect. It’s such a cleverly written adventure of friendship and understanding why limits sometimes exist.
