Overview

I may be in the middle of nowhere,
but I still have standards!

Like it's not bad enough Daddy's in jail for embezzlement (he's a super-successful Hollywood agent, btw, and totally innocent), but since my fashion-model mom died when I was a baby (I'm sure you've seen the E! True Hollywood Story) I've been shipped off to Possum Grape, Arkansas, to live with relatives I've never even met. You read that right: Possum. Grape. Not only is there no Starbucks in this town, but I'm sharing a room with a six-year-old and I'm about to miss the biggest social event of the year back in L.A.

I'm not sure how yet, but I will get back to civilization. Until then, I may be stuck on a farm, but no one's gonna keep me from ruling the roost!

    Reviewed by Sally Kruger aka "Readingjunky" for TeensReadToo.com

    Julie Linker's debut novel, DISENCHANTED PRINCESS, is sure to be a success. A combination of high fashion and down-home charm will make it a fun read for teen girls. <BR/><BR/>West Deschanel's life is turned upside-down when her father is sentenced to five years in prison. Since her mother's death years ago, she has lived with her father and her caretaker, Maria. Now her mother's estranged sister has surfaced and wants to take her to some out-of-the-way farm in Arkansas. <BR/><BR/>Living in L.A., West was accustomed to lavish surroundings. She attended a posh high school, drove a cool car, and was designing her own line of clothes about to be revealed at her very own fashion show. <BR/><BR/>Now she's in Possum Grape, Arkansas. She's gathering eggs, pulling weeds, battling chiggers, and riding the school bus. Dear Aunt Sherrie is all excited about taking her school shopping at WalMart, feeding her good home cooking, and dragging her to church every Sunday. <BR/><BR/>The only saving graces are meeting Sophie, who loves to design and sew as much as West, and having an amazingly cute foster brother named Steve living right under the same roof. Can Sophie and Steve offer enough to make West feel at home, or will West be driven totally crazy by the country life? <BR/><BR/>Linker's quirky characters and great humor had me giggling in every chapter. The lighthearted tone and easy style made this a pleasant and relaxing read. Girls are going to enjoy it and will probably hope that West's adventures continue in a sequel some day.

    This book is very good. It kept me reading. But even though it was very good there were some parts that would not be appropriate for young children. Other then that it is a very good book.

    Adorable!

    Julie Linker has taken the classic fish out of water story and truly made it her own. The only thing you will regret about buying this book is that eventually it will end! The main character, West Deschanel, is stuck in Possum Grape, AR when she is supposed to be in LA planning the party of the century. Even after living through six-year-olds with relentless ADD, chiggers, and her aunt's church trying to save her soul, West learns that maybe being dubbed a Possum Queen isn't the worst thing that could happen to her!
