The Two Princesses of Bamarre by Gail Carson Levine
This ends my exploration of Gail Carson Levine; if you explore my archives, you'll notice that the past two months of this meme have been dedicated to her awesome books.
There are a lot of reasons for me to like this book: it's about sisters and I love stories about sisters (I have one myself); it has a gorgeous cover; it has fairy-tale elements like magic, dragons, and fairies; it's a fun adventure with a sprinkling of romance.
But I'm actually talking about the end of the book, which disappointed me the first time I read it (don't worry, no spoilers!) Most fairy tales I read have the exact end I would imagine but this one didn't (keep in mind that I'm not good at predicting the ends of stories). That had never happened with a fairy tale and I was unable to fathom this particular end. But now that I'm older and going back through stories (I put this aside after basically only the one read), I can appreciate it.
