about

Her name is Alexandria Aurora Fortunato, and she is as lovely as the dawn. But that is only the beginning of her problems. Goose Chase is for fans of Shannon Hales's The Goose Girl and Princess Academy.
 
It starts when Alexandria, an orphaned goose girl, offers some of her precious bread and water to a hungry old woman. The woman just happens to be a witch in disguise, and poof! Alexandria is suddenly heartstoppingly beautiful. When she brushes her hair, gold dust showers to the ground, and her tears turn to diamonds. Now that she’s so beautiful and wealthy, King Claudio the Cruel and Prince Edmund of Dorloo are fighting for her hand, and have locked her in a tower to keep her “safe.” How Alexandria wishes she were a poor, plain goose girl again! Clearly she has to escape—and, with the aid of her twelve geese, that’s precisely what she does. Which is when her problems really begin . . .
 
“A delightful, witty fairy-tale spoof . . . Kindl’s humor, the strong characterizations, and vibrant action give the story wings.”—Booklist, starred review
Patrice Kindl's first novel, Owl in Love, was an ALA Notable Book for Children, an ALA Best Book for Young Adults, and an SCBWI Golden Kite Award Honor Book. She lives in Middleburgh, New York.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Read! I've been a Patrice Kindl fan for some time now, and I feel she's really underrated. Her books are always fresh and fun, and Goose Chase is no exception. The plot is fairly simple- the main character, Alexandria, goes from a common goose girl to a sought after female in this fun tale. After an old lady makes her rich and beautiful, an evil king and a dim-witted prince both look for her hand in marriage. She runs off with the Prince and they try and stay safe while the King sends all his cronies after them. A great read- a REALLY recommend it! Believe me, you won't be disappointed!
