Thirteen-year-old orphan Black Bee Bright (B. B. for short) is funny, quirky, precocious, and adventurous. But B. B. has a secret. She's captive on an island in "the middle of very tropical nowhere" because she's forced to hide her true identity as a royally born princess from her parents' enemies in Raven World. B. B. must find a way to escape to "the Other World" where there are best friends and cool clothes, but she can't escape the island until she passes her Official Princess Test and undertakes a dangerous journey alone to the East side of the island, where eight princesses must help her discover what it truly means to be a princess.
"Through diary entries, B.B. details her life on Bee Island, where she spends her days listening to her squabbling Godmommies, preparing for the OPT (Official Princess Test) with Mamselle, and reading magazines while wishing for a boyfriend or even just a friend....This is a delightful tale of a girl who inhabits a world like readers' but is also very different. What remains true whether on Bee Island or the Other World is her search to find herself and her path in life." -- Naphtali L. Faris, School Library Journal
