The Light Princess is one of my favorite stories, so I was eager to read a retelling of the story.
To be frank, Fly doesn't quite live up to the magic that made me love MacDonald's classic, but it does manage to capture most of the elements of the story, if not its heart. It also does do a fair job of building its own message.
I thought I'd already written a review for Fly, but it turns out I hadn't. This is one of those books that seems so timely with all that is going on in the US right now with water. I appreciated the retelling of this fairy tale very much. H.D. Knightley has a gift for encouraging the readers to follow along and before they know it, they are ALL IN and hoping that the main character sees just all that needs doing.
I received a copy from instafreebie with no obligation for a review. This was a very cute retelling of one of my favorite fairy tales. Fun and humorous. More suited for a younger generation than the original. I found it a joy to read. Can recommend for teens and up. I give it five stars.
This was such a fun read. I plowed through it in two sittings, which I almost never do any more! I enjoyed watching the main character develop. My 11 year old is immersed in a few different books already, but I think she'll enjoy this one too when she has the chance. There's a little bit of kissing and romance, but nothing too adult, in my opinion.
I am not the target audience but I still enjoyed the story. This is a great Young Adult story incorporating a quirky heroine combining personal growth with an environmental twist. The author did a great job packaging depth into a lightweight package easy for young people to relate to.
My girls and I love this book. It's a cleverly written magical fairytale. May girls are 11 & 15 years old and way past the Disney princess phase. This book is intelegently written and right up their alley Can't wait to read Knightlys other books.
