‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)
Princess Trap (The)
by Kirsten Boie
Age Range: 12+
This is the second book about Jenna and the Kingdom of Scandia. Jenna now lives in Scandia with her mother who is King Magnus’ sister. She is a real princess not a fake and has to live up to her new role which she doesn’t find easy. She thought it was going to be fun, but how wrong she was. Between the palace rules, a strict boarding school and the paparazzi chasing her at every turn, she finds herself wishing for her old life.
After a particularly unpleasant incident with the paparazzi Jenna decides to run away from school, only to find herself in even greater danger than before. Some of the old foes of her family are back in the country and she is in terrible danger because she knows too much.
Many of the characters from the first book are also here but there are a few new ones too – the clever Perry and the beautiful Ylva. Jenna finds herself on the run again, captured, then rescued and finally able to help the royal family regain control of the country and, more importantly, to have her first kiss. Another fast paced novel from Kersten Boie for all those fantasy fans.
