TITLE: A Modern Day Princess
GENRE: MG Fantasy
Please try and forget I’m a princess for a few minutes and put your feet in my shoes. Lots of my friends say they wish they could walk a mile in my glass slippers. But let me tell you a little secret. My shoes are too big for me. I have blisters. And my athlete’s foot is acting up again. Trust me. You don't want my slippers on your feet right now.
Once upon a time, just a few months ago, really, I lived an average, yawn inducing life. I went to school, where I spent most of my time hanging out with my friends, whispering about cute boys and to-die-for clothes, dreaming about what high school would be like.
My closest friends aren’t the popular prissy that prance around the school halls as if they were royalty. Not that any of my friends would ever nominate me Most Likely To Be A Princess. I’ve never wanted to be like the plastic Barbie and Kens or rock star wanna be’s. But I always wanted to at least fit in. I don’t think anyone could blame me for that.
My teachers all said I was fidgety and too talkative. I chattered about everything and came up with too many crazy ideas. So when I started attending the Royal Conservatory, I thought they had picked the wrong girl.
But they hadn't.
And if you can believe it, I’m actually good at this princess stuff. Not that I’m, like, this instant royal or anything.
