Paris, at the dawn of the modern age:

Prince Sebastian is looking for a bride―or rather, his parents are looking for one for him. Sebastian is too busy hiding his secret life from everyone. At night he puts on daring dresses and takes Paris by storm as the fabulous Lady Crystallia―the hottest fashion icon in the world capital of fashion!

Sebastian’s secret weapon (and best friend) is the brilliant dressmaker Frances―one of only two people who know the truth: sometimes this boy wears dresses. But Frances dreams of greatness, and being someone’s secret weapon means being a secret. Forever. How long can Frances defer her dreams to protect a friend? Jen Wang weaves an exuberantly romantic tale of identity, young love, art, and family. A fairy tale for any age, The Prince and the Dressmaker will steal your heart.

    This is a eye-opening book that teaches that you should never judge someone because of their gender or sexual orientation. Because of your religion,you may not agree with it, but you should never treat different people as inferior.

      I really liked this book. It was a good way to add romance with something of a connection. The tie between their love of fashion and one another is extrordanary. I really recommend this book. 😊

        The Prince and The Dressmaker is an intruiging tale of a young girl who gets a job at the nearby castle as the prince's seamstress and clothing designer. When the prince reveals his real identity as someone who dresses as a woman, the dressmaker helps him make clothing that fit his inside feelings. This is a really good graphic novel and I loved reading it :)

            This is a story about a prince and a dressmaker, things aren't exactly what they seem. Between teenage troubles, fancy parties, and even fancier people, friends learn to stick together.

              I loved this book. I feel like it was such a shocker at one point. I liked it because of the action in the book.I thought that it was a little weird.
