Review: Twilight’s Indian Princess – Margaret Jean Langstaff

NOTE: I re-blogged this not for the warm endorphin bath it gives me, but to demonstrate what a British TEENAGER can do with words! I am knocked out at how articulate, discerning, and intellectually honest she is.

And, hey, I do admit I was gratified by the review!


I received this book as part of Rosie Amber‘s Book Review Team.

    • Lee Ann, I really didn’t put it up to wave my own flag, but because I was shocked and surprised–stunned–that a British TEENAGER had written it. I don’t know an American teen, I’m sad to say who would even be interested in doing such a thing or have the competence to write such an intelligent critique.
