Olivia Davenport’s plan is destined to fail.
She is going through with it anyway, of course. After all, it is the chance of a lifetime. The unreasonable rules of others should not stand in her way.
In her small kingdom of Stewartsland, Olivia trains with the squires and harbors a secret dream. She longs to become a knight under the command of the Master-of–Arms, who just happens to be her father. He has indulged her passion so far, but they both know a simple fact – girls may not attain knighthood. Dismayed by the constant discouragement of her ambitions, she makes an impetuous decision to disguise herself as a boy in order to sneak on a mission. The consequences are not at all what she anticipated.
When her deception is revealed, she is sent home in disgrace; however, an unexpected turn of events puts her at the center of a dangerous plot against the King. The ensuing adventure finds her grappling with mercenaries and outlaws, yet these pale in comparison to her newly awakened emotions. She finds not only her life at risk, but also her heart, when the aloof Prince Liam begins to affect her in ways she never thought possible. In the end, it is her courage and unique spirit which must guide her through the challenges she encounters both physical and emotional.

Thank you Jane McGarry for letting me review Not Every Girl. Good use of descriptive words. The cliffhanger at the end of chapter one made me want to read chapter one. I like how the main character burps out the things she doesn’t want to say in chapter two. I did not know that Prince Liam would know so much information about the davenport family, which was a huge surprise to me in chapter two. Olivia makes her sister and Ellen to not talk about the event that happened with them to their father. Chapter three tells more details about Olivia's mother and father, which tells the readers how the parents might act later in the book. I do agree with other readers that this story is similar to Mulan. There was a lot of action later on in this book, which I thought was very interesting and fun to read. The way the author wrote the ending of each chapter made me want to continue reading and finish the book. I would recommend this book to people who like romance, action, and friendships.
