Review: Just Your Average Princess

Jamie's cousin is coming to stay for the fall. Jamie remembers having a great time with her when they were really young. When Milan steps out of the truck in her thousand dollar shoes and into something gross, Jamie realizes her cousin might have changed.

She's willing to give her cousin the benefit of doubt. When Milan starts comments on Jamie's hair, clothes, and lack of fun, Jamie begins to have second thoughts.

Milan starts flirting with Danny, the boy Jamie's been crushing over for two years. Then Milan decides to run for Pumpkin Princess. Jamie's been dreaming of wearing that tiara for years. Suddenly it's war and both Jamie and Milan are campaigning.

Who will come out the reigning champion?

My Thoughts: I really loved this book. I couldn't put it down. I loved the fall theme: the pumpkin patch, the caramel apples, and the whole farm. It made me envision the perfect fall day. I really liked Jamie and Sara. I do wish there had been more moments with Danny. He didn't seem to have a big part. Besides his hotness factor, there wasn't really much we learned about him. Overall I loved it - lighthearted and charming. The perfect fall book.

Cover Thoughts: I really liked the uniqueness of this cover - but it doesn't really match the book. It's not the dress she wears. Nor are their pumpkins. Still, it's cute.

This one sounds like a fun, cute read. I downloaded a sample to my Nook but haven't ever actually got around to checking it out. Maybe I will. :)

Happy Thursday!
