Welcome to the island where princes learn to be charming.

Gracepearl Coal is the cook’s daughter on Miramore, the island all princes visit for their summer program in the Charming Arts. Each year, the princes-in-training arrive on gallant seacraft, guided by captains trained to navigate the island’s treacherous waters.

    Reviewed by McKenzie Tritt for TeensReadToo.com

    Gracepearl Coal lives on the island of Miramore, a special place where princes come to train. The rules have changed this year, and now princes are allowed to marry any girl on the island. For the girls it means a chance at love and a chance to escape Miramore. Gracepearl has always dreamed of leaving Miramore, especially now that she's having strange dreams about people in need of her help. What do these dreams mean, and how is she supposed to help the people she sees in them?

    Gracepearl is quickly wooed by two young princes, both of whom she finds charming and exciting. Deep down, however, she knows that she only has one true love, Mackree, an island boy. The princes offer something that Mackree cannot, though: a chance to leave the island.

    As Gracepearl comes closer to her sixteenth birthday, secrets are slowly being revealed. All leads up to that fateful birthday, when Gracepearl learns the secrets of her past and must make a decision that will affect her and her family forever.

    A PEARL AMONG PRINCES was full of historical interest, cute romance, and plenty of secrets. Gracepearl was a wonderful character who was easy to connect with, as were her two best friends. The princes were fun to learn about, and I enjoyed their courting of Grace. The plot flowed seamlessly, never falling off course. The pacing was perfect, and I couldn't put the book down. It turned out to be an incredibly quick read!

    I was surprised by this book, as it was both girly and serious. I expected a fluffy love story, which there was some of, but the book also focused on more important issues. Gracepearl was faced with some tough decisions that required true maturity.

    A PEARL AMONG PRINCES was wonderful, filled with charm and an exciting plot. Girls of all ages will enjoy this book.

    OK

    I had been looking forward to reading this book for a long time. I got it for Christmas and have just now finished it off. It was not what I expected....It had an interesting plot, but the story itself was not exactly well written. The book felt short, for starters. It felt as if there was no story at all....It took the whole book to get to the plot line and then it ended. The ending was confusing and cut off. It almost seemed as if there needed to be a line at the end that said: to be continued. The love between Pearl and Mackree felt almost forced. I felt as if I had missed out on what had been going on. The book said that they had already been life long friends and then all of a sudden they are in love? It did not tell of there relationship before except by saying that they had always been good friends, so it makes you feel as if there love is sudden because you missed out on there previous life together. Even though it was funny in parts it was also rude. There was a part in it that would make me hesitant to lone it to friends. Maybe I was expecting too much, but this story was a disappointment. (to me at least) The suggestive content had to do with three of the girls seeing the princes swim without clothes on.
