Princess Ben by Catherine Gilbert Murdock
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
There was one quote that made this one on my favorites shelf, because lo and behold I look up and see this on the news after reading it.
“With that, I hurled the slipper at him, not caring if I caused his decapitation. (I did not.) Marshaling what little dignity I yet possessed, I stomped down the corridor - challenging indeed with one shoe - and around the corner. I lay awake for hours. The prince had no right, not one, to indict me so, and if I had held the slightest hope of the book's assistance, I would have climbed at once to my wizard room for a spell with which to punish him. Death, perhaps, or humiliation. A croaking frog would be nice, particularly a frog that retained Florian's dark eyes. I should keep it in a box and poke it occasionally with a stick; that would be satisfying indeed.”
― Catherine Gilbert Murdock, Princess Ben
If I myself had been in Ben's position I would have done the exact same thing. Yes truly, ask my husband about my shoe throwing tendencies. Oh a girl after my own heart.
In conclusion this was just a really fun book to read.
