Staff Reviews


Isabella for Real is about a girl whose friends think her mom is a contessa (princess), but her mom is not a princess! So Isabella and her friend Jeffery try to convince Isabella’s friends that her mom is not a princess. I would recommend this book because it is funny and has good characters. If want to know more, read Isabella for Real by Margie Palatini.
