I’d read a few of Hale’s other books, but somehow never managed to pick up Goose Girl. Maybe the title wasn’t too appealing to me? But I am so glad I changed my mind and picked this book up! Goose Girl is an fantasy adventure full of heart. Things go horribly (fatally) wrong when Princess Ani is betrothed to a neighboring prince, and she must live in disguise one of the forest-born folk for survival. I absolutely fell in love with the kindness of the main character, the storybook style of magic and myth the world of Bayern is wrapped up in, and the strong friendships! If you like: tough princesses and wonderful storytelling, this is the book for you.
