A winner of the Mark Twain Award, Janet Lee Carey pens a richly imagined tale of princesses and dragons. On Wilde Island, Rosalind and her mother live their lives in exile, awaiting the time they can reclaim their rightful place on the throne. And there is reason to hope - a 600-year-old prophesy has decreed that they will do just that. But little do they know that their destinies hinge on Rosalind's amazing, shameful secret: beneath her gold gloves, the fourth finger of her left hand is in truth a dragon's claw.More

I could have lived without this book, as it was frequently extremely depressing. I absolutely would not recommend it for a student who is at all prone to melancholia. The story was good, but the was far too much emphasis on people dying, etc. I think the book could have been just as good without all the gore.
Transition of the heroine from a useless princess to a savior.
I think Ms. Amato did an admirable job with this book, and it must have been difficult with all the overly gory descriptions. She kept me engrossed when I wasn't fast-forwarding thru that gross parts.
