"Mother acknowledged all of us with a curt nod. 'Helen, pick those up and come with me.' Her voice was almost as sharp as when she'd reprimanded the Mykenaean ambassador. My stomach turned sour. What had I done?"Nobody's Princess is the story of the girl who would grow up to be known as the infamous Helen of Troy. However, now, she's just a girl who wants more than a comfy palace life; she wants to be on the battlefields! Her sassy attitude often gets her what she wants, but it usually gets her stuck in a difficult situation first. This book tells of how Helen learned to run, to fight, to disguise herself as a boy with cunning ease, to ride horseback, to make friends in unusual places, and most of all, how to follow her heart.

So far, this book is a great read! The only thing I'm not really loving is that I can tell it's building up to something amazing, but I only have a handful of pages left. At least I'm getting the sequel, Nobody's Prize, soon enough! :]
