Book Review: Nobody’s Prize by Esther Friesner

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Genre: Speculative Fiction

Age Recommended: 13 and up (7th grade+)

A satisfying but somewhat crude sequel to Nobody’s Princess. There are some jokes that I felt were inappropriate. A little disappointing in the beginning of the book but it gets better from there.

nobody's prize


Helen of Sparta is back. Her brothers have accepted her as an equal but that is not enough. She also wants to prove to everyone else that she is as good if not better than her brothers.

Helen sets off on a new mission: to sneak aboard the ship Argo with her friend Milo. If she can get to the destination, Delphi, unnoticed, then everyone will marvel at how clever she is. Helen’s disguise has not failed her yet and she hopes that it will take her through this trip.

Milo is separated from Helen when they are put aboard the ship to work. The co-captain becomes aware that Helen is a girl but he agrees to keep her secret.

Since it is considered unlucky for women to be on a ship, Helen must keep her disguise until the voyage is complete and they are at their destination.

Will Helen be discovered?
