Author: Gail Carson Levine
Genre: Young adult, fairy tale
One sister is courageous and always talking about her future exploits killing dragons and saving the kingdom. The other sister is nervous and scared of spiders. Which one will save the kingdom? A fairy tale about courage, bravery, and heroism.
I prefer the author's other book "Ella Enchanted," but this one is also good.
Of course if the main character had to depend on God or another good higher being rather than just herself, it would be better. But for a run-of-the-mill fairy tale this one is nice.
Appropriate for 11-15 year olds.
