Synopsis:When a flawlessly dressed woman steps out of an iridescent bubble and wants to know, like, now if you’d like to become a substitute princess, do you
a) run
b) faint
c) say Yes!
For Desi Bascomb, who’s been longing for a bit of glamour in her Idaho life, the choice is a definite C–that is, once she can stop pinching herself. As her new agent Meredith explains, Desi has a rare magical ability: when she applies the ancient Egyptian formula “Royal Rouge,” she can transform temporarily into the exact lookalike 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. Like, what do you do when a bullying older sister puts you on a heinous crash diet? Or when the tribal villagers gather to watch you perform a ceremonial dance you don’t know? Or when a princess’s conflicted sweetheart shows up to break things off–and you know she would want you to change his mind?

So cute. In all honesty it ended way differently then I expected! But I wont tell you about that. :P Lol. It seemed a little more aimed towards the middle grade genre but you know what! There is nothing wrong with that!  I actually want a sequel :P It was to amazing to NOT have a sequel. You know what I mean? I actually was pining after this for a while. I was so happy when I finally got to sit down and read it and Ill tell you right now. The 4 hours I spent locked away with this book? Sooo worth it. Lindsey did a great job of weaving a cute modern day fairy tale!
