Princess Alert.... Spotted at Books-A-Million

Princess for Hire by Lindsey Leavitt March 16 is the official release date for Lindsey's book but I saw it today... on the self at Books-A-Million...shhhhhh don't tell anyone but you can get one and read it before it's released. I ordered mine Friday so I won't get mine until Tuesday.

I can not wait to read this book. If it's just half as funny as Lindsey is in person OMG it will be great. Look for review when I'm finished with it.

Here is the blurb at Amazon:

When an immaculately dressed woman steps out of an iridescent bubble and asks you if you'd like to become a substitute princess, do you

a) run
b) faint
c) say Yes!

For Desi Bascomb, who's been longing for a bit of glamour in her Idaho life, the choice is a definite C--that is, once she can stop pinching herself. As her new agent Meredith explains, Desi has a rare magical ability: when she applies the ancient Egyptian formula "Royal Rouge," she can transform temporarily into the exact lookalike of any princess who needs her subbing services. Dream come true, right?

Well, Desi soon discovers that subbing involves a lot more than wearing a tiara and waving at cameras. Like, what do you do when a bullying older sister puts you on a heinous crash diet? Or when the tribal villagers gather to watch you perform a ceremonial dance you don't know? Or when a princess's conflicted sweetheart shows up to break things off--and you know she would want you to change his mind?

In this hilarious, winning debut, one girl's dream of glamour transforms into something bigger: the desire to make a positive impact. And an impact Desi makes, one royal fiasco at a time.
