    One thought on “Disenchanted Princess”

    1. Disenchanted Princess is so different from most everything I’ve ever read. The book does some things very well that I don’t normally see.Most of what I write and read is action based. The physical actions of the story far outweigh the talk and musings of the characters. Disenchanted Princess however, is more a story of who West Deschanel is, and so a lot of the story is transacted through her thoughts. Her thoughts transition you from one event to another. And the events are much smaller and [...]

    7. 3.5/5 stars"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 sheban [...]

    8. Ages 13+ (language, casual pot-smoking) After her father is sentenced to jail time for fraud, L.A. girl West DesChanel becomes an effective orphan (her model mom died when she was a baby) and is sent to Possum Grape, Alabama - er, Arkansas - to live with her conservative maternal aunt and family, who she has never met. At first all West can think about is whether she can get back to L.A. for her fashion show and planned devirginization in two weeks (she designs, and has a mad crush on a young up [...]

    9. West is a Hollywood kind of girl. Born into a rich family, designer clothes and having multiple therapists is her thing. But when her father gets thrown in jail for embezzlement, she’s taken custody by her aunt Sherri, who not only lives on a farm but is set on making West become the best Catholic there is. To repent her sins and all that. It’s a cute book with cute characters and a cute storyline. That kind of stuff—you know, not very deep, but still kind of entertaining. I don’t often [...]

    13. I loved this book! Filled with hilarious quips and scenarios (especially the church incident), as well as great well-drawn characters, this is one book you do not want to miss. What really kept me going in this novel was not only the smooth prose, but also the frankness and honesty that Linker shows when talking about controversial topics like religion and sex rarely seen in YA chicklit. Linker also does a fantastic job in putting a twist on the classic fish-out-of-water story, and she is one au [...]

    14. My daughter made me read this. Really, she forced me because it's about a chicken who becomes a princess.[return][return]No, it's not. West is a L.A. socialite who is forced to move to Possum Grape, Arkansas, when her dad is imprisoned for embezzlement. This is the typical chick lit book (heehee). She's horrified about living on a farm and riding in a minivan, but later realizes that family and good friends are worth having. There's a little bit of romance and a lot of fashion design, since West [...]

    15. This story is about West. Everything has nearly gone wrong with her life. Her mom was killed when she was a baby and her dad has now been sentenced to prison for 5 years for something he did not do. Then, her Aunt Sherri gains custody of her and decides that she is going to be called Caroline. West objects nearly everthing. She is forced to buy clothes from Walmart and her aunt wants them to go to church nearly everyday. Read the book to know more:). The entire book was hilarious and keeps you c [...]

    16. I really recommend this book, because it shows that with one mistake that you or your parent makes. It can really affect/ change your life. Especially in West's life she has to move from a very rich/ spoiled life to a new life in the country. As we all should know these are very two different scenarios and it was very hard for her to adapt to her new way of life. From this I learned that you shouldn't get used to getting everything that you want without working to receive it. and that you should [...]

    17. I absolutely loved this book! It's about a big city girl who has to go live with her Aunt in Possum Grape, Arkansas, which is a really small town. She is spoiled, but when she is in Possum Grape, she has no butlers. It was a very funny book, although I didn't like that there was a lot of bad language. I would recommend this to anybody who likes a little comedy with a little romance in it. I think that many boys would not want to read this because it is sort of girly.

    18. this is about a snobby girl from LA sent to live with her aunt somewhere in the middle of nowhere cuz her dad is sentenced to jail for 5 years. she tries many ways to get out of there since her aunt is so religous and does not know what a coffee maker is. after trying many things like bribary she runs away to LA to make it to her annual party where she was going to show off some of her clothing designs but does not succeed and figures out life in the old town is better than LA

    19. I picked this book up at the dollar store and thought I would give it a try it was worth the buck Very cute story about a girl who has to go to hickville when her rich father is thrown in prison Adventures await and there were times I was giggling at the things that would happen. It is definitely written in a teenager perspective so at times there was some language but overall I did enjoy this book.

    20. This book was AMAZING!! It was for sure one of the best books I've ver read. It's so funny and really keeps the readers interest.I especially like the authors books because last year I read the book, Crowned which is also by Julie Linker. Too bad she has only written two books. Anyway this book is so relatable and incredibly hilarious. I love all the characters in the book, and just loved reading it and now I'm sad it's over. I would suggest this book because I loved it!!!!

    21. REALLY, NOT A BAD BOOK. TEACHES US ALL ABOUT HOW IMPORTANT FAMILY IS TO US AND ALL OTHER THINGS THAT GET IN THE WAY CAN NEVER MEASURE UP TO THE FOND MOMENTS WITH PEOPLE YOU LOVE. IT IS NOT ONE OF THOSE FATHER-TIME BOOKS BECAUSE IT HAS A HARD EDGE TO IT AND I LIKE THESE TYPE OF BOOKS THAT CHANGE THE WAY WE THINK. IT GIVES A WHOLE NEW PERSPECTIVE, DON'T YOU THINK?

    22. A truly fun read with enough romance to satisfy a teen girl like me. I esp love stories of modern girls who were forced to live life out of their normal league. It's cool when they learn how to adapt to the new environment & learn to love it. Howeever, one thing that thing bk can't quite hit the 5stars is the ending; it's to aburpt.

    23. West gets sent to the middle of nowhere to live with her aunt. This is a disaster to West, because the is the kind of girls who's very materialistic. This happened because her father was arrested and put into jail for embazzlement. While living with her aunt, she was still very determined to go back home. I love this book, its interesting and i recommend it to teen girls

    24. this book was just plain weird. it got better as i got into it, but the ending felt like it was going to have a sequel and i thought there would be more conflict. I didn't really feel the ending was really the end. it was alright.

    25. this book is about a girl and her dad is in prison and her supermodel mom died when she was born these are one of the books you don't wanna put down for anything in the world there are alot of romance problems, a lot of friendship problems she gets sent to peope shes never even met

    26. A trendy novel of a rich LA girl sent to the rural South to live with relatives she's never met. Talk about a culture clash. Thankfully the author doesn't stereotype to a fault, and includes romance, mystery and a few surprises along the way. A light read -- great for a day at the beach.

    27. This was making me laugh, but it also too much like another book I read about a rich girl who gets stuck in a hick town, plus this one was a little more inappropriate so I stopped reading so I could get on with my reading list.

    28. I loved this cute story, I thought it was hilarious and re-read it whenever I find it at my local library.

    29. I usually don't like books about/told from the POV of a snobby blonde rich girl.But I liked this one.It was funny, witty, and well written.I'd reccomend it!
