"She remembered all the times she had lashed out at the King with scathing words" (Pg. 397).

Azalea had a royal life at the palace with her other 11 younger sisters filled with balls, suiters, and most importantly, dancing. But when her mother passes away, all is taken away as the king, her father, announces that they will be in mourning for their queen and mother. The strained relationship between the princesses and the king becomes as tense as ever, and when they discover a secret passageway in their bedrooms, they go through it and discover a whole new world that is awfully similar to their previous lifestyle. Since then, every night, they danced there all night from sheer stubbornness, even though Azalea feels that there is a dark secret in the other world. The quote is significant because it shows how Azalea recalled how she should have treated her father better, and is also in a part of the book where an important turning point occurs.
