I am Princess X is about two girls, Libby and May, who when they are in fifth grade create a cartoon princess named Princess X. Libby and May are best friends, and write and illustrate books about Princess X. They are very close, and May is devastated when Libby’s mom fall asleep while driving, and their car tumbles off the bridge and into the river, killing both passengers. She refuses to believe that Libby is dead, but as the years go by, she is forced to accept the reality of the tragidy.
Three years after the accident, May is with her father and sees a sticker on a lamppost with a princess that looks just like the one she and Libby created. May, after seeing this is given hope that Libby is alive, and when she does some research, she sees that there might have been more to the story.
I am Princess X is a very powerful book, and I definitely recommend it. I read it all the way through without stopping, and it is one of the best books I’ve read in the last couple months.
