This book is about a girl (Leonora) who is a snotty rich girl that is sent away to a boot camp. When she remembers her dead sister in a dream, she knew how everyone loved her for generosity and compassion. So Leonora chooses to be just like her the morning of Chirstmas. She gave her poor inmates what they needed to survive. One week later she went back home and had realized what a jerk she was before and apolagized.
One of the best books from the Zodiac Girl series,Brat princess teaches a lesson,Not to be too self centered and see the little things in life as Leonora in the story learns after going to boot camp, in fact all the Zodiac Girl books do.I totally recommend this book as it is funny and way interesting.
Leonora has always gotten her way. What with her rude demeanor, screaming antics, and mean comments, it's hard for anyone, especially her parents, to say no to her or cross her. She enjoys making others wait on her hand and foot, having the most expensive outfits and going on the most amazing trips with her best friend, Tigsy, and her pink dog (that's right, it's pink), Coco.
Then three things happen to Leonora that will change her life forever:
1. She isn't able to fit into her favorite pair of jeans anymore; turns out that eating fries and chocolate all the time isn't beneficial.
2. Her so called trip to Paris with Tigsy detours into a trip to a boot camp. Turns out Leonora's parents aren't too happy with the way their daughter acts, and they hope she can shape up in more ways than one.
3. She discovers that she has been chosen to be a Zodiac Girl, meaning she can have the help of the stars for one month. If only she knew how valuable this is.
All of this sounds crazy to Leonora, but her normal ways aren't able to get her out of this situation. Leonora must learn to be independent, a lot nicer, and how to use the stars to her advantage, of course in a good way.
The author of the MATES, DATES and TRUTH OR DARE series' brings us another cute and enjoyable series in ZODIAC GIRLS. Aside from her bratty and rude ways, Leonora will be one character that readers will soon find a liking for. A quick read that will please fans of Cathy Hopkins.
