This is the second book in the internationally successful Calypso Chronicles series. Calypso begins the term facing a dilemma: who does she fancy? Freddie (the prince) or Billy (the fit older boy who rescued her from a dog attack) - or both!

While text-flirting with them over the summer break was fun, she knows she has to choose and decides to make the big decision before the La Fiesta Ball. It's the first ball her parents have allowed her to attend, and the pressure is on to find the perfect partner. Billy may be older and have the hero-persona working for him, but Freddie is the one who sets her pulse racing.

Unfortunately, Freddie reveals he won't be attending due to a much grander fabulous ball at the palace with all the other European royals - a more or less Annual-Euro-Royal-Bash. What can Calypso do? And this is on top of all the other things she has to contend with: school, friends, and sharing a room with the vile Honey O'Hare...

Set in a fictional Eton College where Princes William and Harry attended & the nearby St Mary’s Ascot school attended by Princess Caroline of Monaco and which the authors daughter attended, The Pulling Princes series provides a, “deliciously naughty insider’s guide to the midnight feasts, incredibly close friendships & romances of entitled toffs, British aristocratic & royal teenagers.”

Although entirely fictional, the books accurate portrayal of the hitherto closed world of Royal teens, created feverish speculation and comparisons to actual royals and Aristocratic teens – specifically Prince William and Prince Harry – were inevitable. After a heated bidding war, Bloomsbury won the USA rights to the series at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2004.

The books are narrated from the perspective of a fish out of water American, Calypso Kelly who goes from teased outsider - enduring attacks on her by the British tabloids, teasing by the toffs and taunts from the Horrible Hon.s’ – before she eventually beats them at their own game and manages to not only charm all the girls but pull the Prince himself!
“Bridget Jones for the early teen set.”- WASHINGTON POST USA

“Budding Anglophiles ….will soak up the flood of upper-class British culture in this book. Fans of Cecily von Ziegesar’s “Gossip Girl” series and Zoey Dean’s “A-List” series (both Little, Brown) should enjoy it”.– WASHINGTON COUNTY COOPERATIVE LIBRARY SERVICES

Give this to fans of Princess Mia and Georgia Nicholson as well as to readers of O’Connell’s previous Pulling Princes (2004). BOOKLIST, USA

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

“Outrageously funny and a serious contender for the teen chick-lit throne.” — THE BOOKSELLER on Pulling Princes.

    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.
