The Princess by Stanislaw Kapuscinski is a young adult, coming of age tale about 13-year-old prodigy, Alec. Alec has been blessed with an incredibly vivid imagination which he thoroughly enjoys exploring, to the occasional dismay of his teachers. His daydreaming takes him on wild adventures, exploring and expanding what he learns while in school and beyond. When his parents go on an extended trip and Alec is left to his own devices, he discovers that he is not alone. Princess Sandra reveals herself to Alec. She tells him that she is a part of him and that they have always been together. Alec finds himself instantly drawn to Sandra. Together they embark on adventures within his imagination as Sandra guides Alec on a journey of self-discovery. Alec is amazed to discover that there is an alternate reality within his imagination and that things are more than they seem.

The Princess by Stanislaw Kapuscinski is a completely original and unique take on coming of age and self-discovery. The travels into Alec's imagination are told with exceptionally vivid detail. The characters are realistic and well-developed, with appropriate quirks and humor befitting those of a teenage boy and his parents. Princess Sandra is an interesting character, possessing wisdom and patience as she guides Alec through the steps to discover his true self. The Princess is a riveting read from start to finish and I look forward to reading the remainder of the trilogy.
