Review- Princess for Hire by Lindsey Leavitt
When Desi tires of her job wearing a rodent costume for a pet store, she searches the paper for a new job. Surprisingly, she sees an add looking for a princess. When Desi finds out that the job is real, she begins her mission to make an impact. She "subs" for princesses who need a break and tries to use her insight to make a difference in their life situations. This is the first book in the series; book two, The Royal Treatment, is due out in May.
This book was a fun, girly read. It's a modern fairytale with a strong female protagonist. I would recommend this book to grades 5 and up, but I certainly enjoyed it as well. I wish that it was longer- it seemed like it was over before it began, but I am definitely excited for the next book to come out! 4 stars.
