I spend my weekend reading Undercover Princess, which I hope would be a cute school story. But it was not, it was mostly irritating and annoying.
Book Review: Undercover Princess by Connie Glynn
Title & Author: Undercover Princess by Connie Glynn
Genre: Contemporary, Fantasy
Release Date: November 2, 2017
Series: The Rosewood Chronicles
When fairy tale obsessed Lottie Pumpkin starts at the infamous Rosewood Hall, she is not expecting to share a room with the Crown Princess of Maradova, Ellie Wolf. Due to a series of lies and coincidences, 14-year-old Lottie finds herself pretending to be the princess so that Ellie can live a more normal teenage life.
Lottie is thrust into the real world of royalty – a world filled with secrets, intrigue and betrayal. She must do everything she can to help Ellie keep her secret, but with school, the looming Maradovian ball and the mysterious new boy Jamie, she’ll soon discover that reality doesn’t always have the happily ever after you’d expect…
I give Undercover Princess by Connie Glynn one out of five hearts because most of the time I was wondering how this got published. There were so many mistakes in this novel that it really irritated me.
Lottie and Ellie both really feel like they do not appreciate the situation they are in. As Ellie is introduced she behave like a spoiled teen. She needs to go this special school, but for no real reason. Just so she doesn’t have to be introduced to the world as The Princess? The first thing Lottie does is get almost into a fight with her stepmother. Be happy this woman is taking care of you and lets you stay in the old house instead of taking you to hers!
I have no idea how this got published. The continuity of details never sticks. In one chapter Lottie decides to crawl through some glitter and the next the action is described as a ‘tumble’ and the whole reason she needed to crawl was a tunnel. But later they enter the school through the same tunnel, but now they can just walk all the way though until the original point she found. Also that tunnel was way too easy to find.
Originally I send quite a bunch of money on this novel and I actually decided to bring it back to the store after finishing it, even though that goes against my principles. That is how bad I thought this novel was.
The overall story was very much clear from the beginning expect for the first Trail at end of the first act of the novel. Also I felt like there wasn’t much a very low point and Lottie didn’t really seem to have a point of no return, she could just go back to her old life whenever she wanted.
