Publisher's Summary

A kingdom beset by monsters... A disease that weakens and destroys... An epic poem and a hero of long ago... A story of danger and desperation.
The two princesses of Bamarre couldn't be more different. Princess Addie is fearful and shy. Her deepest wish is for safety. Princess Meryl is bold and brave. Her deepest wish is to save the kingdom of Bamarre. They are sisters, and they mean the world to each other.
Then disaster strikes, and Addie - terrified and unprepared - sets out on a perilous quest. In her path are monsters of Bamarre: ogres, specters, gryphons, and dragons. Addie must battle them, but time is running out, and the sisters' lives - and Barmarre's fate - hang in the balance.
Gail Carson Levine left her mark on fantasy with her well-loved 1998 Newbery Honor Book Ella Enchanted. Now she has created another shimmering and tapestried landscape of fantasy and fairies. Bamarre and the journeys of its two princesses will burn themselves into the minds of listeners, and all will relish this moving saga about two sisters groping their way toward heroism.

One of My all-time favorite rereads

Yes.
I am a 29 year old woman who still read this book, the same book from grade school. This book, along with others, saved me during my lonely years. And I still tear up, get excited, and am filled with a valiant sense of courage after reading it, again and again and again. In times of stress or sadness, I'd read this to reclaim my sense of strength and unity. So I had to purchase this, because I gave away my physical copy a couple of years ago.
Miss Janauary LaVoy did wonders to the story's words.

lovely story of a timid young woman turning brave

This is an old favorite for me. January LeVoy did it nicely.

I especially liked her voice for the dragon Vollys. Very cool. I can imagine kids really loving this narration!
