About the Author:

Lisa Papademetriou lives in Massachusetts.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6 Up–When Veronica and Heather, two radically different sophomores, are transported into the midst of the high-fantasy novel that they're supposed to be writing papers about, they are compelled to find their way through the story. Veronica is a bookish introvert who already knows the plot backward and forward. Heather is a queen bee who knows nothing about the novel and wants only to get home with her nail polish intact. In her ignorance, she diverges from the story line and is mistaken for a princess, which forces Veronica to improvise, much against her natural inclinations. The girls' mutual animosity adds some further interest to a situation ripe for transformative, character-forming experiences among the elves, dwarves, wizard, witches, and whatnot. Papademetriou is playful with the genre, freely referring to Tolkien, Baum, Rowling, Lewis, and Claymation movies, etc., for shorthand descriptions of her settings and characters. For example, one of the elves says he's a Kibler, which readers realize should be pronounced like a well-known baking company after he produces a batch of cookies that he claims to have baked in a tree. The author simultaneously spoofs the genre while plundering it for her own ends. The result is hardly deep, but it's good fun.–Miriam Lang Budin, Chappaqua Public Library, NY
