The Lovereading4Kids comment

A thrilling debut adventure combining the glamour of the world of movies with a sharply drawn political background. Jenna never expects to land the part of the princess when she goes for an audition. But when she does, she finds that her role is not exactly what it seems. Filming in the small and unknown kingdom of Scandia, she discovers that the real princess has gone missing. Has Jenna got a part to play in this? A tightly plotted, nail biting drama unfolds. This debut is already a bestseller in Europe having previously been published in Germany in the author’s native tongue.

Synopsis

The Princess Plot by Kirsten Boie

A movie about a princess is to be made. When auditions take place, Jenna is astounded to be chosen over her much more talented friends. Curiously, even her strict mother gives her immediate permission for Jenna to fly off to begin filming in the small, romantic kingdom of Scandia. But soon Jenna discovers things aren't what they seem. She's the spitting image of the real Princess of Scandia - who's mysteriously gone missing ... An extraordinary coincidence - or is Jenna caught up in some sort of plot? Camera, action - and another sort of shooting begins...
