So happy to present this up-coming YA release to you. My thoughts are below
What it’s about:
Star hockey player Daniel Sacachelli wants only two things: 1) for the Falcons
to win next season, and 2) for his secret — the fact he’s actually the prince of Eldonia — to never make its way to Chicago. But if Daniel keeps avoiding his crown, their family will lose their kingdom forever.Madison Myong can’t believe that her will-they-or-won’t-they best friend Daniel is
really a prince! He’s always seemed more rebel than royal. But now, he needs to clean up his image, fast. Posing as his long-time girlfriend, Madison accompanies him back to Eldonia, intending to give Daniel a makeover fit for a king.
Only, the more royal Daniel becomes, the more Madison misses her best friend. And if she does her job right, she’ll lose him forever…
A hothead hockey player finds himself in the middle of the Princess Diaries. Only, he’s the royal. Not her. Thoroughly enjoyed reading about teenagers being stupid teenagers who can’t communicate how much they’re into each other. Yep, it was totally annoying about their lack of social communication skills, but, hey, that’s so true for any kid who’s sixteen. I mean, how in the world could any teenager come to grips with suddenly taking on the mantle of ruling a kingdom? Especially a kingdom that doesn’t like him, accept him and he doesn’t particular fit into.
My one gripe was the story did have too many echoes of the Princess Diaries from the posse of royal’s American friends to the butler-that’s-on-my-side.
Overall, it’s cute and fun…a great weekend read.
