Princess For Hire

Princess for HirePrincess for Hire Lindsey Leavitt

Desi knows she's destined for greatness-- something much better than spending the summer in a groundhog costume handing out coupons in front of the Pets Charming pet store. When she sees an ad to be a princess, she can't resist.

It turns out that she has Magic Potential and sometimes even princesses need a break. When royals need to get away from their lives for awhile, they call Facade. A bit of magic rouge will transform the sub to a physical match with the princess and the sub will step in for a few days so the real princess can escape.

Desi wants to make an impact, so she tries to help the princesses solve their problems when she's pretending to be them--sadly this is very against the rules. And while Desi can try to solve the princesses' problems, who will help her solve her own?

Very fun with awesome comebacks, ultimate humiliations, and some cool magic technology. It's a fun, light read that shows some of the darker sides of princessdom (Facade runs out of subs when no one wants to go to horrible Lady Carol's wedding). I also liked the internal politics of Facade. I think this will be a series*-- there's definitely room for more continuing adventures but they aren't necessary. However, if they come, I will probably read them.

*Charlotte reviewed this last week and she says there are two more coming.

This sounds fun-I would love to stand in for a princess even for a day!

When I saw my name, I nervously went to find the original source of the info on there being two more books to come--it is this interview of Lindsey Leavitt at Cynsations!
