American Royals – Katharine McGee


What if America had a royal family?

When America won the Revolutionary War, its people offered General George Washington a crown. Two and a half centuries later, the House of Washington still sits on the throne.

As Princess Beatrice gets closer to becoming America’s first queen regnant, the duty she has embraced her entire life suddenly feels stifling. Nobody cares about the spare except when she’s breaking the rules, so Princess Samantha doesn’t care much about anything, either . . . except the one boy who is distinctly off-limits to her. And then there’s Samantha’s twin, Prince Jefferson. If he’d been born a generation earlier, he would have stood first in line for the throne, but the new laws of succession make him third. Most of America adores their devastatingly handsome prince . . . but two very different girls are vying to capture his heart.

Oh my. I LOVED this book. I don’t know why, rightly or wrongly I didn’t expect much when I picked this one up. Boy was I wrong.

The concept was fabulous and the characters were so well developed! The book explores lots of different characters and their relationships and perspectives. It explores family and love and friendship. I felt a real attachment to them all and found the ending very moving!

It is told from multiple points of view that not once got confusing! The writing style was easy and a good pace for me.

I would recommend this book! I gave it a big 5 stars out of 5!
