Review of The Hero & The Crown-Robin McKinley

After reading more recent works by this author, I finally got around to this Newberry Award winner.  It's such a great book for middle grade readers; I'm going to search out other earlier books.  Aerin is the King of Damar's daughter, but feels insecure because her mother was considered a witch so the Damarians don't trust her.  She decides to become a dragon killer and that sets her on a road to self-discovery & confidence.  This novel has some great characters and nail-biting action.  4 Elves - Highly Recommended
