A fairy princess visits modern earth...
15 year old Princess Quinnella is allowed to come and go as she wishes in the kingdom of Mandria, visiting the wizard and playing at magic. But she knows that when she turns 16, she will become a woman and must choose one from a long line suitors--or the king chooses one for her--then comes marriage, childbearing, and royal protocol. But before Quinn settles into a life of predictability, she wants to travel to "outer earth," the world above the wishing pool. When she gets her wish, Quinn gets far more than she bargained for. Skateboards, Halloween dances, and pizza, danger and adolescent intrigue surround her. There's only one problem: she doesn't know how to return to Mandria, and she's not even sure she wants to!

It has been awhile since I have read this one, but I remember liking it because it was small enough to fit in my purse.
Good read for young adults and children :)
I love this book and I've read it numerous times. The story is interesting and it tweaks the typical princess story. Great read and I recommend it for anyone of any age. I've been reading it since I was in grade school and I'm graduating college now and I still like it :)
This book was ok for what it was. It is listed as reading level 9-12, but I just wanted to see whether I liked it. It was good enough that I did finish it, but I don't really have interest in the sequel. The Princess from an underground country visits the "real" world. It is very interesting to see how she interpreted our behavior through her society's norms. However, the way the author solved the problems at the end of the book was just too easy and seemed like a cop out. (I won't go into detail so it isn't a spoiler.
