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!


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 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.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
