Publisher Comments:

When plague strikes Bamarre, Princess Addie must fulfill an ancient prophecy.

Brave and adventurous, Princess Meryl dreams of fighting dragons and protecting the kingdom of Bamarre. Shy and fearful, Princess Addie is content to stay within the safety of the castle walls. The one thing that the sisters share is their unwavering love for each other.

The tables are turned, however, when the Gray Death leaves Meryl fatally ill. To save her sister, meek Princess Addie must find the courage to set out on a dangerous quest filled with dragons, unknown magic, and death itself. Time is running out, and the sisters' lives—and the future of the kingdom of Bamarre—hang in the balance.

About the Author

Gail Carson Levine grew up in New York City and has been writing all her life. Her first book for children, Ella Enchanted, was a 1998 Newbery Honor Book. Levine's other books include Dave At Night, an ALA Notable Book and Best Book for Young Adults; The Wish; The Two Princesses of Bamarre; and her Princess Tales books: The Princess Test, The Fairy's Mistake, Princess Sonora and the Long Sleep, Cinderellis and the Glass Hill, For Biddle's Sake and The Fairy's Return. She is also the author of the picture book Betsy Who Cried Wolf, illustrated by Scott Nash.

Gail, her husband, David, and their Airedale, Baxter, live in a two-hundred-year-old farmhouse in the Hudson River Valley.

In Her Own Words...

"I grew up in New York City. In elementary school I was a charter member of the Scribble Scrabble Club, and in high school my poems were published in an anthology of student poetry. I didn't want to be a writer. First I wanted to act and then I wanted to be a painter like my big sister. In college, I was a Philosophy major, and my prose style was very dry and dull! My interest in the theater led me to my first writing experience as an adult. My husband David wrote the music and lyrics and I wrote the book for a children's musical, Spacenapped that was produced by a neighborhood theater in Brooklyn.

"And my painting brought me to writing for children in earnest. I took a class in writing and illustrating children's books and found that I was much more interested in the writing than in the illustrating.

"Most of my job life has had to do with welfare, first helping people find work and then as an administrator. The earlier experience was more direct and satisfying, and I enjoy thinking that a bunch of people somewhere are doing better today than they might have done if not for me."

This was a class book we were supposed to read together in my 3d grade class. I loved the book and read it as far as my teacher would let me. But I had to move away in the middle of the year before we could finish the book. So my teacher gave me a copy of that book to keep and wrote a little something inside it for me. I love this book so much and its still on my shelf to this day. I feel weak both inside and out like Addie did at the begining of the story, and so I hope as I get older and learn more I can become strong and brave like she was. A wonderful book, in my opinon it was Levine's best!

Meryl and Addie are sisters but very different. Meryl is brave and bold, she wants to go on quests and kill monsters. Addie is scared most of the time; scared of bugs, scared of the dark, scared of getting sick and scared of of losing her sister. But when her sister falls ill with the Grey Death and only has a short while to live Addie must try to find enough strength in herself to look for a cure.

This is a nice teen story about being strong, even when you feel weak. Levine does as least as good a job on this book as Ella Enchanted. Some of her stories have issues with the writing or plot that bug me, but this one was really good. The characters felt so real and powerful, a contrast to some of hers in other books that tend to be vague or bland.
