486. Sweet Dreams Recap: Princess Amy by Melinda Pollowitz

Recommended Posts

This is a weird one, y’all. We’re taking a trip back to the early 80s where fiction for teens and pre-teens came with some awful, upsetting messaging, but also some fantastic clothing choices, some excellent descriptions of weird children’s birthday parties, a cute boy and a very good dog. It’s Princess Amy by Melinda Pollowitz!

I figured I’d probably have to issue some warnings at some point, re-reading vintage YA, so here we are.

TW/CW: assault, jerkward rich bros, disordered eating, and severe anti-fat bias.

I want to know what you’d put in the epilogue to this book – please comment or email your ideas because I am desperate to fix this.
