Summer Book Club: “The Cruel Prince”


Samantha Dickerson, Assistant Lifestyles Editor

Everyone has a hobby that they only enjoy during the summer months, and if you are anything like me, your hobby may be reading. Over the summer, I will read a new book from many different genres and review them when I have completed them. Feel free to read along, comment, and share your views on our summer book club picks.

On Monday, July 2, the new summer book pick will be The Cruel Prince. Released in early January, this will be the first installment of a series by Holly Black. This book, in the fantasy/action genre, follows a young heroine named Jude whose family was killed when she was seven. Jude was then taken to live with the High Court of the Faeries, who are immortal beings, and who happen to hate humans. Throughout her teenage years, they are in the midst of a civil war. She goes on adventures to try to fight against the king and princes of the faeries, and has to work for respect due to her mortal nature and background.
