Grace wants to be the best princess she can be, so she shows up unannounced at the Tall Towers Princess Academy. When the other 12 princesses see her in her yak-hair coat, they decide she doesn’t belong. The fairy godmother teachers don’t think so, either, until they see her pass the unicorn test. But instead of welcoming her, they make fun of her and the unicorn that chooses her. “What is that thing?” It looks like it’s come through a bush backward.” Click here for more of the curledupkids.com book review of Lou Kuenzler's Princess Disgrace: A Royal Disaster.
