Princess for Hire
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
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.
I just did a short review for this one:
Princess for Hire was deffinatly a cute, lively read meant for younger readers. Desi was very real and relatable. Through the book she went through some crazy and exciting adventures.
This was so adorable, and I think younger readers would deffinatly love it.
