Disenchanted Princess - Julie Linker

"Disenchanted Princess" is sort of a reverse The Princess Diaries, with a rich, beautiful girl sent to live with her hick relatives in a small Arkansas town. The protagonist, West, aspires to be a fashion designer and is accustomed to a life of incredible luxury. She is, of course, thoroughly disgusted by her small town family members.

The book reminded me far too much of my own high school days in a small town, to be honest. The cliques, who was "cool" and who wasn't ... the whole shebang.

Of course, it all works out just perfectly for West in the end, all the way around ... because that's how these sorts of YA books tend to go. Honestly, I doubt I would have picked this book up if it hadn't turned up on the swap shelf at work. It was reasonably entertaining and well-written, but not really my cup of tea in terms of plot, etc.
