i skipped about 20 pages once i got to page 16 because it got really boring for me ( )

Conspiracy, jumbled with too many characters all jockeying to be the lead. And a poor translation that makes the book sound like a talented 8th-grader's fanfic. ( )

Roughly a year has passed since Scandia regained its presumably dead king and main character, Jenna, found out that she was royalty. With the conspirators that appeared in THE PRINCESS PLOT out of the country, the North Islanders and the South Islanders of Scandia should be able to live happily ever after, right?

Well, not quite.

Jenna is an outcast at her boarding school, especially due to her dark features that are typically associated with all North Islanders, and her pizza-eating media scandal that revealed not-so-princess-like behavior. After feeling the pressure to be perfect among a tangled romance, Jenna finds herself running away into the hands of a friend - and unexpected trouble.

Things are also rocky on the home front. Food shortages and attacks supposedly staged by the country's rebels are destroying the reforms that King Magnus, his sister, and other government members installed to help bring about peace between the previously divided country. Is a coup truly going to ruin all hope for a united Scandia, despite the different economic classes and physical features?

THE PRINCESS TRAP is a book full of adventure and constant plot twists. The courageous characters, along with the incorporation of history and national pride, help to make this novel one-of-a-kind. The ending will leave you with goose bumps and a new sense of empowerment. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0545222613, Hardcover)

The PLOT thickens! Already fed up with her restrictive new life as a PRINCESS, Jenna runs away (with a boy!) from boarding school, only to get caught up in a TRAP to overthrow her uncle, the king!

Life as a princess = a dream come true, right? Not so much! Between palace rules, a mean-girl roommate at boarding school, the ever-present paparazzi--and, BTW, her unrequited crushing on Jonas--Jenna finds herself wishing for plain old anonymity again. So she runs away--only to be captured by the villainous Bolstrom, who's been planting seeds of unrest in the newly unified nation of Scandia and plotting to overthrow Jenna's uncle, the king! Aided by her sassy BFF Bea, Nahira's rebels, and maybe even that mean roomie, Jenna must stop a civil war--when all she really wants is her first kiss!
