This Saturday, Fat Panda and I are reading Secrets of a Reluctant Princess.
Blurb from Goodreads:
At Beverly Hills High, you have to be ruthless to survive…
Adrianna Bottom always wanted to be liked. But this wasn’t exactly what she had in mind. Now, she’s in the spotlight…and out of her geeky comfort zone. She’ll do whatever it takes to turn the rumor mill in her favor—even if it means keeping secrets. So far, it’s working.
Wear the right clothes. Say the right things. Be seen with the right people.
Kevin, the adorable sketch artist who shares her love of all things nerd, isn’t exactly the right people. But that doesn’t stop Adrianna from crushing on him. The only way she can spend time with him is in disguise, as Princess Andy, the masked girl he’s been LARPing with. If he found out who she really was, though, he’d hate her.
The rules have been set. The teams have their players. Game on.
When her father's success brings Adrianna to Beverly Hills, she sees it as a fresh start and is trying to avoid the mistakes that made her a target at her old school. With the help of her stylist, she falls in with a popular crowd at school, but she often has to suppress parts of herself, as she fears these parts would not be appreciated by her new friends. The bright spot in her week is when she dons her mask and goes LARPing as Princess Andy.
This story is really cute. I am totally in love with Kevin. The interactions between him and Adrianna are quite adorable. I am totally shipping these two. But if I had to pick one favorite thing about the book, I would say it is all the LARPing parts. I almost want to slip into a tunic, grab my boffer and get out there with them.
I am keeping my fingers crossed that everything works out for everybody in this book.
Look for my review on March 13th.
