One thought on “The Chosen Prince, by Diane Stanley

  1. I recommend this fantasy book for a Newbery award because it is distinguished. I’ve never read anything like it, I loved the characters and felt compassion for them, and the plot was very well established. You could picture this in your mind. It was described in vivid detail. This book is timeless, in my opinion. One of the best books I’ve ever read, this would be great for only those about 9-years-old and up because it deals with gods and goddesses, pain and suffering and becoming a better person, which those under 9 may not relate to.
