Princesses Don’t Become Engineers by Aya Ling

Princess Elaine is much more than just a pretty face. She is an inventor and wants to learn. When she barely makes it into the university, she is determined to study hard so she is allowed to stay and finish her course of study so she can become an engineer.

Princesses Don’t Become Engineers is an adorable book. Elaine is not your typical princess, but she is truly lovable. My 9 and 11-year-old boys loved the book and when I finished reading it to them, they both said it was such a good story. They really loved how it ended. They were really hoping it would end that way. I highly recommend this book to middle grade kids (even though the main character is a princess, it’s definitely not just for girls!). It makes a lovely family read aloud.
