The Lovereading4Kids comment

A light-hearted comedy about whether dreams can really ever come true… Desi’s chirpy first person narrative tells the story of how her oh-so-boring life is transformed when she is accepted to be the substitute princess. Surely then, she can leave dreariness behind and live her dreams – especially as there is a handsome prince to go with the role… But life doesn’t always work out like that as Desi soon discovers!

Synopsis

Princess for Hire by Lindsey Leavitt

Wanted: teenage girl to serve as substitute princess. Must be willing to travel. Please call Meredith. Ever wanted to be a princess? To float away from your ordinary life and swan about in a tiara, with everyone telling you how fabulous you are? Desi desperately wants to escape her boring, unfulfilling life in Hicksville, Idaho. And now she has the chance - she's got a job substituting for various real princesses when they need a holiday. But not all princesses live in a palace, and not all princes are gorgeous...plus the whole fairy godmother thing is seriously misleading. Thrown into the job with little training, Desi finds that she'll need an awful lot of luck - and a bit of magic - to get by. Maybe having your wishes granted isn't always as straight forward as it seems.
