    Reviewed by Joan Stradling for TeensReadToo.com

    As the fourth princess of Gossling, Amelia doesn't have to worry about being queen. After all, she has three sisters who will inherit the throne before she does. Besides, Amelia is only ordinary at best. Her school work is poor, and she's not nearly as talented and beautiful as her three older sisters. Amelia is content to play with her best friend and let others worry about running the country.

    However, Amelia's ordinary life changes when a plague devastates the country, killing her parents and leaving the burden of ruling to her terrifying uncle, Count Raven. Her three older sisters are under Raven's dangerous spell, and it's up to Amelia and her friends to rescue Gossling from the tyranny and destruction of Raven.

    But can an ordinary Princess find the strength to be extraordinary?

    I enjoyed the characters and world of THE EXTRA-ORDINARY PRINCESS. The only issue I had was a small hiccup with inconsistency in the case of three stones. My understanding was each stone could only be used once, yet Amelia used the stones four times. Still, this was a small distraction in an otherwise engaging and remarkable tale of finding inner strength.

    Ebbitt uses multiple points of view to tell the story of Gossling's darkest days. It's amazing to enter this magical world and yet feel at home. The characters are well fleshed out and easy to relate to. I couldn't help but root for Amelia and the other "good" characters as they struggled against Raven and their own shortcomings.

    THE EXTRA-ORDINARY PRINCESS is an extraordinary journey of self-discovery and finding the courage to fight, even when you think you could fail.
