I wasn't quite what to expect when I picked up this book. From the cover, I think I expected it to be about a super hero along the lines of the graphic novel Nimona. Instead, I found a very interesting mashup of realistic fiction, mystery, and graphic novel. I think it's a book that would appeal to the young YA crowd, maybe grades 7-10, as it is a great story with just the right amount of edge. The main character May begins the novel mourning the death of her best friend. May and Libby had spent many hours together creating a cartoon character, Princess X. So, why, three years after Libby's death, is Princess X suddenly appearing again in Seattle?
