Princess Breeze by Beverly Stowe McClure opens with Breeze Brannigan thinking a lot about Cam. She was wondering why he had not returned to Whispering Springs and she really wanted to know if Cam was okay. That afternoon, while lounging with her friends Amy and Allison, Breeze’s thoughts turned to Cam and she was curious to know about Cam’s country, Isla del Fuego, if the Revolution there was over, or if Marco had won and had become the king. Cam made her realize that her frizzy hair was not the end of the world and he was not bothered by the fact that she was taller than him. He liked her for who she was, and now she was missing him. The story takes a different turn when Cam contacts Breeze and invites her to Isla del Fuego and she decides to go with her family and best friends, Amy and Allison.
The story is enthralling and takes readers on a fantastical ride with Breeze, her family, and friends where there are twists, turns, suspense, enchantment, and whimsy. The detailed descriptions bring the island and the scenes to life and make them vivid to readers. Readers will be curious to know if Breeze is the reincarnation of the legendary Princess Leilani. There are other exciting happenings in the story; a volcano that was rumbling, and a possible romance with a prince. The story, apart from the fantasy element that takes place during their trip to Isla del Fuego, deals with typical Middle School moments; the excitement of school, and having boyfriends.
The author has seamlessly woven the subplots into the main plots, giving the story many layers. All the characters are well portrayed, making them memorable, real, and relatable. Then there is Seth Gatlin who will make readers wait for the next book to know whether Breeze will end up falling in love with him or will she be with Cam. It is a must-read for all middle schoolers who enjoy fantasy, action, adventure, and some light romance.
