This past week I read Princess for Hire by Lindsey Leavitt.

Princess For Hire

Here is Goodreads jacket flap version of what it's all about.

When a well-dressed woman steps out of a bubble and wants to know if you'd like to become a substitute princess, do you 
A) run 
B) faint 
C) say yes? 
For Desi Bascomb, who's been longing for some glamour in her Idaho life, the choice is a definite C). Desi has a rare ability: with the help of "Royal Rouge," she can temporarily transform into the exact look-alike of any princess who needs her subbing services. Dream come true, right? 
Well, Desi soon discovers that subbing involves a lot more than wearing a tiara and waving at cameras.... In this winning debut, one girl's dream of glamour transforms into the desire to make a positive impact. And an impact Desi makes, one royal fiasco at a time.

Here is my basic review.
I give it a  out of 5 stars and a G movie rating.  I absolutely LOVE that it is a clean book.  The reason for the three stars is mostly for the fact that it felt like a MG/YA crossover and I'm pretty much a YA lover.  It was a cute read and since I do have a soft spot for princess stories, I really did like it.

Have any of you read it?  What did you think?


  1. I haven't read that one, but it sounds like something I'd like. I do like princess stories and I like both MG and YA. I'll have to put that on my long list of to-reads.

  2. I think I actually may have started it but didn't get past the beginning...I can't remember though.


Thanks so much for visiting! I appreciate your comments and feedback.
