Over Christmas, I was looking for free books at Smashwords to add to the eReader my niece was receiving for Christmas. I happened across Prince Nameless by Patti Larsen. I was first alerted to Patti's writing when I asked from book trailers to feature. Her trailer of Family Magic is the first trailer to make be want to get the book.

Unfortunately, I haven't picked up a copy of Family Magic, but I did download Prince Nameless. I also read it in one night. It is an entertaining short story, yet with a message that really resonated with me. I wish I had had this story when I was growing up. Would it have saved me heartache? Probably not, but I might not have felt so alone.

Prince Nameless is the perfect blend of nonfiction and fantasy. It is a story young girls will identify with as so many struggle with peer acceptance and popularity growing up. And it is sometimes very difficult when reality doesn't match the fairytale.

I knew upon completion that this is a story my niece needs to read. I hope it will give her encouragement to be herself and realize she's not the only to have her experience.

Prince Nameless just makes me want to pick up Family Magic that much more. Patti Larsen is a wonderful storyteller and her writing is excellent. I'm going to go see if it is available for my Nook right now. Meanwhile you should pick up Prince Nameless.
