My favorite part of the book is when Addie is stuck in the monstrous dragon's cave. Addie has to avoid being fired to death and try to weasel the cure for the Gray Death from the dragon. Addie changes greatly in the story by becoming courageous. After all, if you were trapped by a dragon would you be able to face anything? This book takes place in a same type of mythical world as Ella Enchanted, the Princess Tales and Fairest. This book does not have any illustrations but the author describes things so well it is easy to create a picture in your mind's eye.
I recommend this book to any girl between the ages of 8 and 14 who would love a great adventure. This is the sort of book that is perfect for a rainy day and once you start you can't put it down until the last page. This book is a must read!
