2015 book 61

Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan's The Royal We
Look, if the Fug Girls are going to write a book inspired by Kate Middleton, I am THERE, ok? And this did not disappoint. They've created a more-or-less fictional version of the British royal family (all of whom are great and/or hilarious), and the royal bride in this case is a Midwestern girl who meets the prince while studying abroad at Oxford (they bond over a crappy supernatural tv show, naturally). And of course he has a playboy brother, and she has a twin sister who causes DRAMA. I actually really, really liked this. It was amazingly readable--I didn't want to put it down--and the writing is mostly really strong (there are a couple of slightly cheesy parts, but nothing too terrible). I loved both these characters and was psyched to see them together. Plus, since it's the Fug Girls, there is some great stuff about all the clothes, and a very sly sense of humor. Well done all around, a super fun and entertaining read. A-.

A review copy was provided by the publisher. This book will be released in April.
