**This review is based on an ARC from Netgalley, it releases 4/7/15.

Well, being that I am a bit in love with The Royals on E! and I love the story of Kate Middleton and William, I knew this book was going to be a good one! Who can resist that cover?! And, hello, I am the Library PRINCESS so this is my kind of thing! Though the main character is American, I can still picture this being somewhat similar to Kate and Will’s story of love. Rebecca (Bex) decides to go to school at Oxford to pursue her Art studies, which separates her from her twin sister, Lacey, for the first time in their lives. On her first day there, she unknowingly meets the Prince of Wales (Nick) and becomes fast friends with all of his friend group. She finds herself in a casual relationship with one of them, but then soon realizes (after some bonding over a silly TV show) that she has feelings for the prince. Thus, begins the story of their (secret) courtship, with all the drama necessary to make it an enthralling read. Throughout the story, you are forced into a feeling of frustration on the part of both Bex and Nick because WHY can’t they just be together without worrying about everything and everyone else?! Maybe being a royal is not all it’s cut out to be (as if!). Bex is transformed into Rebecca and finds out who her true friends are along the way, including some scandal involving her best friend and twin, Lacey. Though this was a loooong read (I kept thinking I would never finish), it was a good one and I didn’t lose interest. Even though the characters were upscale British people, I still found them relatable and they were very fun. I don’t know if many of my high school students would be as interested as I was, but I can think of some friends and colleagues that probably would be! I can’t wait to share this with them!
