I Am Princess X
I Am Princess X | Cherie Priest
Best friends, big fans, a mysterious webcomic, and a long-lost girl collide in this riveting novel, perfect for fans of both Cory Doctorow and Sarah Dessen, & illustrated throughout with comics. Once upon a time, two best friends created a princess together. Libby drew the pictures, May wrote the tales, and their heroine, Princess X, slayed all the dragons and scaled all the mountains their imaginations could conjure. Once upon a few years later, Libby was in the car with her mom, driving across the Ballard Bridge on a rainy night. When the car went over the side, Libby passed away, and Princess X died with her. Once upon a now: May is sixteen and lonely, wandering the streets of Seattle, when she sees a sticker slapped in a corner window. Princess X? When May looks around, she sees the Princess everywhere: Stickers. Patches. Graffiti. There's an entire underground culture, focused around a webcomic at IAmPrincessX.com. The more May explores the webcomic, the more she sees disturbing similarities between Libby's story and Princess X online. And that means that only one person could have started this phenomenon---her best friend, Libby, who lives.

I wish I would have read this in print form. Several sections are graphic novel, which I did not know until after the book was over! Bummer 😕
I did like it on audio but could have loved it in print.

Shley9225 It is soooo good in print. If you can check get your hands on a print copy (like from your library) it‘s absolutely worth it even just to flip through 4w

I LOVED this book. 💜 I stayed up late finishing it last night. I don‘t think I have ever read a book like it. Friendship, mystery/thriller, and one girl‘s quest to save the 👸🏻 princess aka her best friend. I enjoyed not having any romances to worry about and it was just a purely fun read! I might need to find more by this author. #vhsreads #viloniareads #yalit #friendship

#ANewChapter #Day5 #UniqueRead
With a format that blends a novel with a comic book, I think this one definitely qualifies as a unique read. And then the story itself blurs the lines between reality, the stories we write, and the stories we tell ourselves. I truly loved this book and think everyone should read it. I definitely will be rereading this in the near future.

Don‘t let the word “Princess” convince you that this is only a book for little kids. Part web comic, part regular narrative, I Am Princess X tells the story a girl who was thought to be dead, that appearance of something that suggests otherwise, another girl‘s quest to discover the truth, and a man willing to kill to make sure that truth stays hidden. Best Friends. Princesses. Mystery. Dark net. High Stakes. Thriller. Must read.

Libby and May are a bit odd, quirky and best friends and turn to writing a comic—Princess X—to entertain themselves. It all stops when Libby dies in a car accident. Fast forward a few years and May stumbles across a sticker—of Princess X. Then she learns there is a popular webcomic and soon she is convinced her best friend Libby is alive and asking for help. Best friends, a webcomic, the streets & a lot of mystery make for a fun read.

There‘s something liberating about diving deep into the TBR stacks and randomly pulling out a book to read. It‘s fun trying to remember why I selected the book in the first place. In this case, I think it caught my attention because the author also wrote Boneshaker. This one has best friends, a webcomic and a whole lot of mystery. (14/50)

CoffeeNBooks I randomly read this book because it was on a list of #ya books, and I read it to see if I wanted to add it to my classroom library. I was surprised by how much I liked it, and added it to my library right away. 10mo

The story was well written. Everything in the book connected and pieced together, which was really excellent. The illustrations even brought the book to life even more! This book is well enjoyed, and i‘d give it an 8/10.

I'm back from vacation, and I barely read anything when I was gone, despite the loaded kindle. In normal circumstances, I probably would have read this one in a day, but it took me two weeks. 😅

This is both a story of grief and loss and a riveting adventure to save someone before they are lost for good. I loved the creative combination of prose and sequential art, where it felt like we were reading both May and Libby's stories simultaneously.

This was unexpectedly fun. Two friends & a shared creation of Princess X. When one dies, the other tries to move on. But she starts finding clues that her friend might be alive. There‘s adventure, loyalty, & trust. But what makes this different is the mixed media. Mostly text, but also part graphic. And what‘s especially refreshing is that this is a story about two girls who are friends and other male friends help but no romance appears anywhere.

Cherie Priest really needs a better editor. I love her books, but her writing always reads like a first draft badly in need of a red pen. However, despite that, I liked her first foray into YA. I hope she does more as I'm curious to see where her mind will go next. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book is a great YA story. It's got a touching back story, exciting mystery, comics woven into the chapters, and quite a bit of action. I didn't love it because it glossed over a lot of things (to be expected at times in YA), but I know my 7th grade students would be super into it.

Also, this book earns credit in my book for not including a cliche romance angle.

WiseGirl13 Romance would break that book 1y

Is there an underrepresented colour on your bookshelf?

Awesome Sauce! This hybrid novel/comic which explores the power of friendship, is chock full of adventure, mystery, & hidden clues & was a nonstop blast from beginning to end. In addition to the narrative, there's also the story within the story presented via beautifully rendered purple graphics. So much fun!

I mean, who doesn't love a princess with a Japanese sword who wears a dress and red converse?!

Look at these cute comics! But seriously, that's the last bit of cute. It gets dark, fast. Thrilling.. I ate this book up in a total of maybe five hours. I liked just the whole hunting clues through an online comic with the help of a hacker. Trick and May were pretty stinkin' cute together too! Satisfied with ending.

"Why X?" Libby asked.
"Because X is the most mysterious letter," May told her. "And things with X's in them are usually pretty cool."

I just started this, and it has already pulled me in. Mystery and emotions abound! I love the purple artwork in the graphic novel-like sections.

Autumnscribe I loved this book. It was a lot of fun to read; very exciting and well paced. I actually only read it because my 12 year old daughter begged me to. So glad I listened to her. So for her birthday I took her to seattle (we live nearby) and we took pictures of as many of the locations as we could get to. You can see them on my blog (https://booktrekker.wordpress.com/2016/11/01/book-trek-i-am-princess-x/) if you like. 3y

Remember the circus of wonder that was the Scholastic Book Fair? One of the best parts of being a teacher is the beauty of the teacher wish list. Guys, I get to write down books I want in my classroom library and wonderful, generous families buy the books & I find them in my mailbox or students hand them to me & my reaction is always that of a house-elf receiving footwear. Student has given Teacher a BOOK! #teachersoflitsy
