A mystical adventure about a pulls-no-punches princess and the power of her magical pen.
A dark secret lurks in Keira’s family. She comes from a long line of Word Weavers, who bring their stories to life when they use a magical pen. But for generations Word Weavers have been hunted for their power. That’s why Keira is forbidden to write. When Keira discovers her grandma’s Word Weaver pen, and writes a story for the Girls’ World fairy-tale contest, she starts to wonder if anyone ever truly lives happily ever after. Inspired by the life and times of Gabrielle d’Estrées, a real French princess who lived during the 1500s, The Princess and the Page follows the mystical journey of a modern-day “royal” who goes from aving a pen in her hand to wishing for the world at her fingertips .

MY REVIEW: This book was enjoyable and perfect for middler graders!
This story is about word weavers, those who can bring words to life and they can even enter that world. But there’s one catch and that is the character can hurt the word weavers.
There were many fun characters and magical creatures in Christina’s book. I think middle graders will enjoy it. Kiera was a great heroine to follow on her adventure because every girl can connect to her. Kiera wants to write but there are no pens and paper allowed in the house.
Kiera does find a magical pen that brings things to life thus begins a great adventure with mystery and magical elements. Christina does a wonderful job and bring the reader into Kiera’s adventure and the magical world
Should you read it! Yes! Perfect for any middle graders or adults that wants to be taken away on and adventure with humor and mystery.
