I got an advanced reading copy of this book at Book Expo America from Bloomsbury. Previously I have read Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow and Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George and enjoyed them both. This was a very fun read focused on the very nifty idea of a castle being able to change itself whenever it wants. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it was a quick read and was entertaining and fun. It is aimed more at the middle grade age set than young adult; but I think even adults who are young at heart with enjoy this book.
Princess Celie loves Tuesday because that is the day Castle Glower changes itself. Sometimes it adds a room with bouncy floors, something it connects the pasture to the bedrooms…you just never know what is going to happen. When Princess Celie’s parents go missing it is up to Celie, her sister (Lilah) and her brother (Roth) to save the throne from the grasping hands of neighboring kingdoms. The big question is what does Castle Glower want? Will it help them or has it decided to pick a new king?
