Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite Princess Breeze by Beverly Stowe McClure opens with Breeze Brannigan thinking a lot about Cam. She was wondering why he had not returned to Whispering Springs and she really wanted to know if Cam was okay. That afternoon, while lounging with her friends Amy and Allison, Breeze’s thoughts turned to Cam and she was curious to know about Cam’s country, Isla del Fuego, if the Revolution there was over, or if Marco had won and had become the king. Cam made her realize that her frizzy hair was not the end of the world and he was not bothered by the fact that she was taller than him. He liked her for who she was, and now she was missing him. The story takes a different turn when Cam contacts Breeze and invites her to Isla del Fuego and she decides to go with her family and best friends, Amy and Allison. The story is enthralling and takes readers on a fantastical ride with Breeze, her family, and friends where there are twists, turns, suspense, enchantment, and whimsy. The detailed descriptions bring the island and the scenes to life and make them vivid to readers. Readers will be curious to know if Breeze is the reincarnation of the legendary Princess Leilani. There are other exciting happenings in the story; a volcano that was rumbling, and a possible romance with a prince. The story, apart from the fantasy element that takes place during their trip to Isla del Fuego, deals with typical Middle School moments; the excitement of school, and having boyfriends. The author has seamlessly woven the subplots into the main plots, giving the story many layers. All the characters are well portrayed, making them memorable, real, and relatable. Then there is Seth Gatlin who will make readers wait for the next book to know whether Breeze will end up falling in love with him or will she be with Cam. It is a must-read for all middle schoolers who enjoy fantasy, action, adventure, and some light romance.
Princess Breeze is another jewel of a book from Beverly Stowe McClure. Breeze Brannigan is such a true-to-life young teen. Like many girls her age, she worries about her looks, her friends, and first kisses. But unlike a lot of middle school girls, Breeze is also a determined heroine caught up in the adventure of a lifetime. Tropical islands, erupting volcanoes, mistaken identities, and a possible coup made this story such a page turner for me. I devoured it in just a few days. The characters are a joy. Breeze was ME at that age, wondering if I would always be taller than most of the boys. I like Cam, but it is Seth that steals the show. He cracks me up. One of my favorite things about the book is that Breeze’s family (sister and parents) were portrayed as strong, capable folks. Too often in YA and middle grade books, the parents are missing or inept or downright cruel. Not so in this book. Kudos to the author for avoiding that trope. Princess Breeze is a delight from start to finish and I highly recommend it for readers who enjoy likeable heroines, action packed adventures, and sweet romance.
This is the second book in a very adorable, fun series. This story starts with Breeze Brannigan's end of the eighth grade class party. She hasn't heard from cute guy Cam after he and his mother returned to their palace home. When he surprises her with an invite to visit his home, Breeze and her family accept. Her best friends Amy and Allison also go with them. Once there, Breeze is mistaken for the reincarnation of a legendary island princess. There's also other things happening like a volcano that is threatening to erupt, a possible coup, and a bubbling romance with a prince. Breeze is adorable, sweet, spunky, and someone readers will relate with. She struggles with her red hair, height, and confusion on which guy she likes. She really likes Cam, who just happens to be a prince, but friend Seth also has her attention. I really loved Breeze! Her interactions with her friends is authentic. They're fourteen years old and just finished middle school. The giggles, excitement of first boyfriends, kisses is very real. Breeze holds her own too. She isn't one to sit on the side lines! There's action and adventure when Breeze, her family, and friends go to Isla del Fuego. McClure gives vivid and lush descriptions of this island and I can see why Breeze would be so enamored of Cam's home. There's suspense and a legendary princess Leilani that the islanders think Breeze is the reincarnation of. I really liked the twist of the story where Leilani comes into the picture. I also loved how it's Breeze who once again doesn't sit around when her family and friends are in trouble. She's very pro-active. The ending gives readers a hint that there might be more to this series! I can't wait to see Breeze as a freshman in high school. Will she go with Cam? Or will her friendship with Seth become much more? Sweet romance with a spunky heroine that is sure to resonate with readers. Perfect story for teens who are looking for lighter romances.
