I Am Princess X

By: Cherie Priest

Pages: 227

Lexile Level: 790L

As young girls, May and Libby bonded over the creation of Princess X.   May wrote the stories and Libby drew the comics.  Both girls lived vicariously through the Princess' adventures until the day Libby died.  For years, May dreams of her friend and misses the days they spent creating a world for themselves.  Then one day she discovers a sticker that looks like their Princess X.  This leads her on a search throughout the city for more proof and she quickly that her friend might be alive.

I Am Princess X is a really unique blend of graphic novel and traditional storytelling.  Sprinkled throughout the book are pieces of a graphic novel that features a princess trying to escape her captor and find several items of power in order to save her kingdom.  The illustrations are beautiful and the story of Princess X melds with the mystery of the missing girl in a really interesting way.
