Ellie and her mother lost everything in the hurricane: their home, their family business, and, tragically, Ellie's dad. They get a chance at a new life when Ellie's mom gets a job apprenticing as a farrier and managing a horse farm in Virginia. Ellie has a scholarship to Twin Creeks Preparatory School, where her snobby classmates aren't friendly at all--until a rumor begins that Ellie is actually a princess! Suddenly Ellie is the school's most popular girl. But what will happen when the truth comes out?

This is SUCH a touching story. Poor little Ellie and her mother have lost everything, but a better life is in store for them. However, Ellie is teased and made of by the snobby fourth grade girls at her new school... until a ridiculous rumor changes everything. Now the whole fourth grade believes that Ellie belongs to a royal family... and while that may be nice for a while, people are gonna have to find out about her rough past evantually... Full of heartfelt illustrations and touching quotes, this book is a must read and I highly recommend it.
