The unlikely heroine is a girl named Penny Jackson. She was born with an unfortunate nature of having extra large ears - among other unflattering qualities a typical teenage girl can obsess over.

She is quite particular about what she likes to hear so Penny takes to ignoring whatever is unpleasant to her adept ears. She and her music device are inseparable. When the beat starts, Miss Jackson is constantly swept away into her own world; in this fantasy she is a rock star and a fashion goddess.

Very quickly Penny develops a new talent - one that takes ever far far away from reality.

Charlene's Review:

Penny is your typical teenager. Whenever she has to deal with something boring or mundane, she puts on her earphones and proceeds to block out the world. She is also no stranger to trouble, as her daydreaming ways often find her in detention, or worse. However, her daydreams start bringing her a new reality one day that makes her appreciate her life just a little bit more.

American Princess is a fun, light read with heaps of creativity and mysticism. A very simple writing style that occasionally gets off track, but the basic storyline is enjoyable and the teen angst and emotion is spot-on. I especially enjoyed the illustrations, also done by the writer, Ms. Sanford. They added a fun, quirky quality that most books do not have. This is a dreamy, young adult fantasy by a very imaginative writer.
