<opt> <anon I1="BLANK" I2="BLANK">From I AM PRINCESS XThe sticker on the very last building before Olive Street shouldn't have caught her eye at all. It was vinyl, and cheap. The edge was starting to peel. The colors were a little faded. It was round with a black border. But within this border was the outline of a girl with shiny blue hair. She wore a pink puff-sleeved dress, a tall gold crown, and red Chucks. In her left hand, she held a purple sword shaped like a katana.May kept staring at the stupid sticker like maybe it'd pop to life and tell her that none of it was ever true. Not the bridge. Not the car. Not the water. Not Libby's closed casket and her empty house, with an empty room, and an empty closet where the boxes of Princess X memorabilia used to be.Maybe none of it was true. Or at least not the most important thing. Maybe Libby was alive. Excerpted from I Am Princess X by Cherie Priest All rights reserved by the original copyright owners.

Horn Book Review

May and best friend Libby created Princess X in fifth grade. When Libby dies in a car accident, hundreds of pages of Princess X comics disappear. Now May, sixteen, finds a Princess X webcomic, with little clues only Libby could know. May is sure Libby's alive--and in danger. Scenes from the comic are interspersed throughout the harrowing and mysterious narrative featuring an engaging protagonist. (c) Copyright 2015.
