With strong characters and intriguing plot played out against stunning Parisian locations, Pop Princess is a satisfying and suspenseful read. Continual twists and turns make it impossible to know who to trust … Recommended.

Romance, intrigue and a fairytale ambience make this book, the second by Isabelle Merlin, a must-have for girls of lower secondary age.

Wow! What a book. I really enjoyed this book; in fact I read it twice. There were so many twists and turns and every time I tried to guess how it would pan out, something completely different occurred . . . There were so many occasions throughout the book where I was holding my breath and then heaving with a sigh of relief.
