Overview

"It is sure to have fans of O'Connell's previous novels rolling on the floor laughing their royal crowns off." SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL, USA

"A Right Royal Read!" MAYFAIR TIMES UK

"Funny exposé of It-girl school life." ELLE GIRL UK

Its a new term at St Augustine's. Calypso, exhausted from her from her flight from LA, lugs her trunks up the ancient oak staircase, unaided by the bustling valets, maids, parents, man-servants & body-guards of the other girls.

Her heart sinks when she discovers she's roomed with psycho toff, The Hon. Honey O'Hare & the beautiful & aloof Lady Portia Herrington-Briggs.
On top of that, her innocent txt-flirtations with the heir-to-the-throne HRH Prince Freds & the Eades Fencing captain, Billy are getting well...complicated to say the least. Which boy will she choose & is the choice even her's to make? Is Lady Portia Herrington-Briggs txt-ing with Freds?

In a term of moon-lit picnics, Body Shop bottles concealing Vodka drinking, texting-torture & romantic muddles over whose pulling whom, all anyone really cares about is an invite to the Royal Euro Ball.

But Calypso get her Cinderella-perfect ending, or will Honey finally manage to turn her into a frog?

"There is never a dull moment in this boarding school....Plenty of laugh-out-loud moments" - VOYA

Meet the Author

Tyne O'Connell is a bestselling British author. Her 13 novels have been published to great acclaim by Headline UK, Bloomsbury USA & other international publishing houses. Her books include the bestsellers, What's A Girl To Do? And the Pulling Princes teen series.
Born into an Irish Catholic family, daughter of a retired spy, her favourite chore as a child was collecting eggs from the hens for sixpence. She began telling teachers & family she would be an author from age eight. Her first bestselling book was Sex, Lies & Litigation, pub1996 Headline Review.

She's spent most of her life in Mayfair where she brought up two husbands & three children. The area is at the heart of many of her books. She writes about all things Mayfair: The Restoration, Bluestocking Salons, Roman Catholics, spies, eccentrics, royals & fashion for mayfaireccentrics.com, dandizettes.com and elsewhere. Visit her at www.tyneoconnell.com & follow her on Twitter @tyneoconnell

O'Connell was educated by elderly Flemish Sacre-Coeur nuns (born in the 1870-80's) with the expectation that she would marry a diplomat. It was an unusual Victorian style upbringing & by 17, she was accomplished in Le Cordon Blue, Croquet, Semaphore, Literature, Latin, Needlepoint, Flower Arrangement, Diamond Valuation, Deportment, Millinery & Embassy Dinner Seating. After school she returned to London in a smart tweed suit perfectly prepared for a world that hadn't existed for decades.

Her extraordinary life has been featured across all media, including TV documentaries & features in Vogue UK, Elle, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire and most UK broadsheets. Cassandra Jardine in The Daily Telegraph UK, hailed Tyne as "A modern day Elinor Glyn - the original It Girl". ELLE UK described her as "The Impossibly glamorous Tyne O'Connell."

In 2004, Tyne began writing her bestselling fictional teen-series, Pulling Princes, BloomsburyUSA. Based on her three children's & her own experiences at single-sex boarding school; set near Windsor Castle in a fictional, exclusive all-girls boarding school close to Princes William & Harry's alma mater, Eton College. Narrated by an ordinary American teen, Calypso, as she navigates the Terrible Toffs & Horrible Hon.s' & opens the lid on the antics of royal teens. The books have been described as modern classics, an "up to date version of Angela Brazil's boarding school books of the early 1900's." www.calypsochronicles.com

    Ick

    Another teen book about self-absorbed rich girls. Calypso is not the sharpest knife in the drawer. Did not like at all.

    Calypso Is AMAZING

    i absolutely loved this book because of my ability to relate to the trechourous Honey, outrageous Star, and Calypso and Georgia. I was also infatuated with the English teen lavish lifestyle. I would absolutely encourage everyone to read it and many of my friends and teachers have read it because of myself.

    Wow!

    This book was fantastic! It was so funny, but in some parts it made me want to cry because I felt so bad for Calypso, but I never needed to because then something amazing would happen. I can't wait for the tird one. I hope there's mor to come after book three. I highly reccomend this series.
