Gleaming Bright - A Fantasy Novel

Gleaming Bright by Josepha Sherman

Princess Finola, a tomboy who still likes to wear dresses, has to go on a quest to find a gleaming box that can grant wishes, otherwise the whole country may starve because of drought; or worse, be taken over by a horribly cruel king.

Sometimes the characters in a fantasy novel are thin and not worth reading. This one is a little different. Although I don't really care about the king and some of the other background characters, the lead character and her friends quickly become your friends and you want them to win. Find out what happens!

This book is great for younger teens, grades 5 through 9.
