Prince and the Dressmaker

Prince Sebastian has a secret, one no one can ever find out. At night, he wears beautiful dresses and takes Paris by storm as a fashion icon named Lady Crystallia. Only two people know his dangerous secret, and one of them is his best friend, Frances, his dressmaker. But she dreams of greatness as a fashion designer, but as long as she remains a secret, she will never be able to gain recognition for her work. But how long can she put her dreams on hold to protect her friend?

I loved how this book turned around the YA cliche of a girl dressing up as a guy, but I honestly loved everything about this one! Almost everything about it is perfect, and I don't say that very often. I loved the characters, the story, the drawings, and especially the ending, although the romance felt forced. This book focuses on a gender-queer or gender-fluid protagonist, and I have never seen that in a fantasy/fairy tale book.

This book is great for any age, everyone should read it.
