KIRKUS REVIEW

Martha, a tall, flaxen haired Iowan, is full of self doubt as she arrives in Washington to visit her uncle, a government dignitary. Still bitter with the rejection of a high school beau, she fearfully faces the glamour of the capital, convinced that here she will be even less popular. But in Washington as a Princess in the annual weeklong Cherry Blossom Festival, she discovers her height to be an asset, her blonde hair a crown, and Martha, suddenly a celebrity, finds admiration and finally romance. Essentially this book offers the reader neither understanding nor information, but rather a vehicle aimed toward the end of wish fulfillment.
