Just Your Average Princess
Author: Kristina Springer
Content: PG (couple references to sex)
Level: Middle School Plus
Recommendation: Okay Read
Summary: Jamie Edwards has loved everything about growing up on a pumpkin patch, but ever since her cousin Milan Woods arrived, things have really stunk. Jamie can’t imagine it was easy for Milan to leave her life back in Los Angeles and move to Average, Illinois, population one thousand. But it’s kind of hard to feel sorry for her since (a) Milan’s drop-dead gorgeous; (b) she’s the daughter of two of Hollywood’s hottest film stars; (c) she’s captured the attention of everyone in town, including Danny, Jamie’s crush since forever; and (d) she’s about to steal the title of Pumpkin Princess right out from underneath Jamie!
Review: The story is cute, but not much is truly resolved by the end of the book, give or take a friendship or two. The main character doesn't change a lot over the course of the story, but it is a cute, easy read for chick lit.
