    Reviewed by Jennifer Rummel for TeensReadToo.com

    Jenna and her friend get invited to audition for a movie about a princess. Little does Jenna know, it's not actually for a movie.

    Without telling her overprotective mother, she auditions. She makes it to the final round, not believing that she's been singled out and chosen above all the other girls in her town.

    But instead of filming a movie, they take her out of the country to fill in for a real princess during her salute to the crowd during her birthday - so that the princess can enjoy her day in peace. She's still dealing with her grief over her father's death not two months prior.

    While Jenna's auditioning, the real princess has escaped from her boarding school and is heading for safety. Political issues are cropping up and she knows that her uncle, the regent, will be siding on a very important issue. The two parts of the country are at odds: the southern half is wealthy and happy while the northerners struggle with poverty.

    When the king was alive, he was working towards strengthening the country - together. But now that he's dead, things have gotten worse. The regent is going in the opposite direction.

    The princess knows she's got to make a stand, but with someone standing in for her, how will she get the chance? Meanwhile, Jenna's beginning to figure out that something's not right, but she's not sure what's really going on.

    THE PRINCESS PLOT is one part political drama, one part mystery, and one part fairy tale, all included in a very fun read.

    A Fun, Fast Paced Read

    I went into this book expecting a cross between Princess Diaries and The Princess and the Pauper. What it ended up being was a fairly exciting story of political intrigue, royalty and the normal girl caught in the middle.

    Jenna is tired of her overprotective mother and in a minor rebellion decides to go to a casting call for a new movie. She ends up being swept up in a fairy-tale like situation where she lives like a princess and stands in for the country's beloved princess, "While she is grieving for her father's death" Jenna quickly finds out there is more to the story than that, and uncovers a story of political deceit and some darker secrets that the "Movie Directors" are hiding.

    This book delves into some interesting statements about class, has some exciting action and was a fairly interesting book. And there are some enjoyable mysterious elements as the reader tries to figure out exactly how Jenna and her mystery-past and heritage fits into everything. It had some slightly darker moments and hints at violence that were somewhat unexpected considering the intended age level, but that being said I would recommend this book to anyone, particularly girls ages 13 and up.

    I have read and reread this book like 5 times and it gets better

    I have read and reread this book like 5 times and it gets better each time. This book is not like any of the other princess books i have read this has action and an amazing plot. This book will make you keep reading and guessing every time you turn the page. By far the best princess book out there.

    gift for granddaughter I read few pages interested

    At 7 my grandchildren saw a child backed over with a car. they were totaly tromitized. It has been 2 years and my grand daughter picked this book as a reward for doing so well in school. As I read these few pages I was disterbed that her parents would have a problem with this. I totally didn't like the scull on the outside cover and on the first page. Then it starts with a procession with a child who's Dad has died. But children have to deal with death and maybe this would open some channels of comunication about death and their feelings about it.
