My Ranking Points
This is an extra-short chapter. Sorry!! Time limit . . .
Amira stuffed her mahogany suitcase with cumulus-nimbus pillows, embroidered with dewdrops, boxes of parchment, and peacock feather quills. Her mind raced at the thought of actually going to the School for Good and Evil! She thought it would never happen. She would actually get a chance to become a storybook princess!
Then she started thinking about everything that could go wrong. Becoming a Mogrif, a bean plant? What if the other princesses didn’t like her? Beatrix was a real beast in The Tale of Sophie and Agatha. It wasn’t as if she would be instantly loved. Her hand reached up to absently pat her soft brown hijab. What if they thought she was weird because of it?
Of course, she would never abandon her religion just to have other girls like her. There had to be someone nice at the School, like Kiko. It wasn’t impossible . . .
I like that she’s worried she’ll be ridiculed because of her hijab! It adds a specific flavor to the story and makes it interesting!
