...it shows how much things can change in seven centuries even though girls still stick together. It is very funny and made me laugh a lot.

Synopsis

In the kingdom of Pine Glen . . .

When a teenage wizard blunders a spell that sends a real, live medieval princess to the Peabodys' house, fourteen-year-old Casey Peabody is in for a royal mess! It was bad enough attending Pine Glen Junior High with a squad of cheerleading princesses. Now suddenly Casey has to contend with a real princess of her own.

Her Highness, Princess Eglantine, is an expert at the three Ps: Prettiness, Perkiness, and Popularity—but she can't play soccer like Casey, and she hasn't got a clue about junior high! With ribbons in her hair and her nose in the air, the princess will need Casey to battle the cheerleaders . . . and though she doesn't know it yet, Casey will need the princess, too.

With laughs at every turn, this magical tale proves that you don't have to wear a tiara or be a great soccer player to be cool. It doesn't take a wizard's spell to figure it out: Confident girls rule!

Betty G. Birney has been a star soccer player, a beautiful princess, and a cheerleader—in her writing, that is. In reality, she once made it to the finals of her junior high cheerleading tryouts, and she still plays a mean game of Ping-Pong. Born in St. Louis, Missouri, she has worked in the Kingdom of Hollywood for many years, where she's written over two hundred television shows. Her work has garnered numerous honors, including an Emmy, a Writers Guild of America award, three Humanitas Prizes, a Christopher Award, and many state awards. She now reigns over her backyard office in Los Angeles. Alas, her house does not have a dungeon.
