    1. This is a fun book. Lots of action, suspense and intrigue. I've tried to get some of the kids to read it at school but I think they were put off by the pink cover. I was afraid it would be just a 'girly' book and I wasn't really in the mood for one but wanted to read it so I could booktalk it when school starts again. I was really surprised at how much fun it was. It isn't a 'girly' book at all. I hope they change the cover because both girls and guys would like this book.


    2. My first comment about this book is that it is an unusual story. I picked it up for my library at a recent book fair and it has a pretty steady circulation; not hot, but definitely not dusty either. Both the book and the blurb are attractive: pink and princessey with a pirate-looking skull; a young girl wins a dream movie role and is catapulted into real danger. For the most part, I would say that the story lives up to this expectation, especially if that expectation is from young dreamy-eyed gi [...]


    3. 3.5 StarsA very enjoyable and engaging story about Jenna, a young girl who is raised never knowing who her father is or the truth of her identity, but who is sucked into the political turmoil of Scandia, which is on the brink of civil war following the death of its king, and tricked into pretending to be their princess Malena, to whom Jenna just happens to bear an uncanny resemblance.We also get to have snippets from the POV of Malena, Jenna's mother, the Regent and several others.The emotions w [...]


    4. I've had this book on my bookshelf for years, and since I recently picked up its sequel, I though it was about rime for me to read it. The first thing I noticed straight away is that it's for a younger age group. Not middle grade. The awkward age in between. The age where people would actually use omg and bff in real life. So that kinda put me off, but I continued reading. Some parts are a little bit predictable, but some parts weren't. This may have started like a 'omg-im-so-cool' pre-teen stor [...]


    5. Cute story. The writing style takes some getting used too, and it was slow in several places.More on the girly side, but may work for some young boys as well.For my clean readers:I don't remember much in the way of language but there is violence, bombings, and talk of murder. Also kidnapping, both adult and child, through misdirection.Good story to help discuss choices for your kiddos and the dangers of life.No romance.


    6. This book lacked personality, but it had a clever plot. I think that it being translated probably sucked some of the life out of it.


    7. 3 stars.hThe cover of this book was too delicious to pass up. Yummy pink with sparkles and a skull and cross bones to make it look bad ass, and though the cover is delicious like a cotton candy cupcake at Crumbs, the book is just ok like a smaller vanilla cupcake with vanilla frosting which many people like because its comfortable. Much like this book.The story goes that Jenna, daughter of an over protective mother who is an etiquette teacher for a living (really, does anyone actually do this?) [...]

    9. Jenna is tired of her mother always being so overprotective, so when the chance comes along for her to audition for a part in a movie, she decides to go for it without telling her. All of Jenna’s friends are auditioning; why shouldn’t she? The movie people tell her that the role for which they are casting is the part of a princess. Jenna doesn’t think that she’s very princess-like, so she can’t believe it when they tell her that she got the part! She can’t believe that they didn’t [...]


    10. Super fun book! Listened to most of it on a play-a-way on our trecherous road trip over Thanksgiving (10 hours in a snow storm to get to 5 hours away location--and that was only part way to our goal). The play-a-way died on chapter 22 leaving a van full of very disappointed listeners. Once I checked out the library book, the 14 yr. old boy and two 11 year old boys fought over who got to finish the book first! Even though the main character is girl and the cover is pink--this book is full of adve [...]


    11. This was a great book. It definitely kept me guessing. It was as longer book, so it had more details in it. It was fun to read. During the ending of the book, I couldn’t stop reading it. I usually don’t read during the weekends, but I couldn’t help myself. I didn’t know what was going to happen. It’s one of those books where when the character is confused and doesn’t know much, you’re confused and you don’t know much. In the middle of the book a lot is revealed, but it’s only u [...]


    12. S- Possibly the most confusing book I have ever read. "The Princess Plot" tells the story of a mssing princess adnd a young, similar looking girl who is taken awaky by officials to serve as a replacement while the princess is being relocated. Sounds like a great tale, I know. But let me tell you, this book is anything but that. "The Princess Plot" skips to conversations where you have no idea who the people are and what they're talking about. Half of the things they are saying are boring and unn [...]


    13. I tried to have a good attitude about this book. But for the most part, it was extremely predicable and the characters were ridiculous. I understand that it's for junior fiction, but even younger kids are going to see the transparency of what was going on. And then there were random phrases and words mixed in that young kids would NOT understand. So it really didn't work much for me.


    14. I loved this book!!!!! It was so suspenseful all the way through. I found this book in a box of books that our friends had given us before they moved house. AMAZING! The whole book was really detailed but not boring at all. I loved the characters and how the book only gave away small clues until the final "punch" at the end. Well done Kirsten Boie!!!


    15. This book was really kind of weird. It had the whole princess and the pauper thing, but weirder. Maybe the whole book felt so weird because it was originally written in Polish or something. It felt really old fashioned, but eveyrone had cellphones. weird? Oh yeah.


    16. LOved it. Future readers it is not the sappy type of book.


    17. It was a streach for everything to stick together, but overall a great story. BTW, don't let the cover full you! :)



    18. My library had this as an audio-book and i wanted something simple and fluffy to read. I know this was meant to be YA, but i thought it was really uneven in it's target age group. Maybe it was because the narrator spoke slowly and like she was speaking to a toddler, but there were points where it felt like it was aimed at 10 year olds and times where it was trying to (poorly) compete with other YA dystopian novels. It really wasn't even in the storytelling.The story started out like the prince a [...]


    19. Awesome. I really liked this book, since it was so much more than I expected. The Princess Plot is a political story at its heart but what I really liked about it was the multiple narratives, the fast pace, and the epic plot twists. This is a read for anyone who like multi layered stories, fast pace, and mystery. I am definitely reading more of the authors work.



    20. Conozcamos el lado misterioso en una historia de princesas. Bueno, que al menos tiene que ver con una princesa. Decir que Jarven lo es está más fuera de la realidad que cualquier cosa. La aburrida Jarven, con una madre que no le permite hacer nada y sus ganas de salir a pasear. Si esto fuera un cuento, estaríamos todos sorprendidos. ¿Cómo hacer crecer una mentira? Intentando decir nada. Y es así porque aquí lo que no se dice se demuestra. Esta historia, aventura más bien, está basada en [...]


    21. this review was originally posted at a-thousand-shipsShips Launched: 773When I first read this book, I had no idea that it was originally a German bestseller. Yes, I'm a tad ignorant.In The Princess Plot, a young girl named Jenna wins a starring role in a princess movie against all odds, but mysterious things begin to happen when she arrives at the filming location in the foreign country of Scandia. Boie did a great job with creating the country of Scandia. Every country has its problems, and Sc [...]


    22. This German import, translated by David Henry Wilson, takes readers on surprising twists and turns. It starts of when Jenna and her best friend Bea decide to audition for a movie after seeing an announcement for the tryouts. She know that her mother wouldn't want her to do it because it is not the proper thing, but Bea talks Jenna into going anyway.When they arrive, they learn that they are trying out for the role of a princess in a story. Jenna is surprised to find herself chosen as the leading [...]


    23. Man, German’s children’s book are a head trip. Over the years, I’ve read a handful of children’s books originally published in German and translated into English, and all of them are much darker and more sinister than their English counterparts. Oh, and on that note: This may be the worst title and cover design ever for a book that’s pretty dark and sinister in its own right. A bright-pink cover with a whimsical name like The Princess Plot may sound like bubblegum fiction – and this [...]


    24. I first saw this book at a book fair at my school 7 years ago. It sounded a little like The Princess Academy in the sense that it was action full and princess as heroine. I ended up not enjoying this book near as much as that one though. First, there were several elements that just struck me as unrealistic like leaving the country on an airplane with strange men without speaking to your parent. I also really didn't enjoy all of Jenna's put-downs of herself and her really low body-image. As far [...]


    25. When the 14 year old Jenna auditions for a movie, she is really happy to win, nit knowing what will happen.This book has many aspects, in my point of view, the one that most describes this book is dramatic. If I could only use one work to describe this book it would be dramatic, there is just a lot of drama action in this book.This book is also really symbolic. It helps you value what you have while you have it. I think this because, at one point, Jenna is a normal happy girl with a normal happy [...]


    26. This book was pretty bad. If I had paid full price for this I would have been upset. As it is paying half price for it was too much in my estimation. I will be getting rid of my copy of this book. A girl who has a super controlling mother goes to a movie audition. She doesn’t do anything except stand there and she’s picked for the part!! She doesn’t question this. Nor does she question the people auditioning her and their need to confiscate her cell phone for like three hours. She also doe [...]


    27. GOOD READS ASSIGNMENTFAITH CAMPOS“THE PRINCESS PLOT”The title of the book is “The Princess Plot,” and this book was written by Kirsten Boie. The genre of the book is fiction and has some mystery to it. The main character of the book is named Jenna. She’s just a normal girl or so she thinks. Jenna was asked to play the role of a princess in a play and all of a sudden she’s taken to a real kingdom for the “shoot.” The first thing she realizes is that she’s a total resemblance of [...]


    28. This review is also available on my blog, Read Till Dawn.This is a really good escapist book, one of those novels that meets all of your unspoken desires.It feels a lot more clunky now that I'm older, a lot more manipulative as you realize how obviously Boie is catering to the emotional desires of a teenage girl reader who dreams of being whisked away to wear nice dresses, smile to an audience, play the part of royalty, and be a hero in a complex political mess - a political mess that, in this c [...]
