Laugh-out-loud funny! Right on target, a great read for anyone struggling through unexpected circumstances. Definitely will recommend this to all my girlfriends, guy friends and young girls worried about finding a place in this world. I can't wait to read Julie's other book, "Crowned".

Julie Linker's debut novel, DISENCHANTED PRINCESS, is sure to be a success. A combination of high fashion and down-home charm will make it a fun read for teen girls.

West Deschanel's life is turned upside-down when her father is sentenced to five years in prison. Since her mother's death years ago, she has lived with her father and her caretaker, Maria. Now her mother's estranged sister has surfaced and wants to take her to some out-of-the-way farm in Arkansas.

Living in L.A., West was accustomed to lavish surroundings. She attended a posh high school, drove a cool car, and was designing her own line of clothes about to be revealed at her very own fashion show.

Now she's in Possum Grape, Arkansas. She's gathering eggs, pulling weeds, battling chiggers, and riding the school bus. Dear Aunt Sherrie is all excited about taking her school shopping at WalMart, feeding her good home cooking, and dragging her to church every Sunday.

The only saving graces are meeting Sophie, who loves to design and sew as much as West, and having an amazingly cute foster brother named Steve living right under the same roof. Can Sophie and Steve offer enough to make West feel at home, or will West be driven totally crazy by the country life?

Linker's quirky characters and great humor had me giggling in every chapter. The lighthearted tone and easy style made this a pleasant and relaxing read. Girls are going to enjoy it and will probably hope that West's adventures continue in a sequel some day.

If this is what passes for (even casual) literature for 16 year old girls and I assume even younger girls who probably read it, we are doomed. My daughter bought this at a used book sale and thankfully I perused it before she read it. A fish out of water story is fine -- our family loved Hannah Montana The Movie which bears some resemblance to this - BUT there is minimal character reformation (if any) which is the payoff from a fish out of water story, no moral, deprecation of an entire way of life ('simple' country living), and, worst of all, casual references to sex, (almost) casual sex, and casual drug use! Those themes might be OK for someone in their 20's who has already become the person they are going to be but, for girls who are still figuring that out, this book is poison. As a dad, this book was my wake-up call that there are some really trashy, worthless books out there that are still popular and get good reviews. Pretty scary. Why would you feed your kid's brain trash when you could feed them a classic? It just doesn't make any sense to me.

With her mom dead and her dad recently locked up for (supposed) embezzling, West is sent off to live with her aunt in the middle of nowhere, also known as Possum Grape (yes, that's really the name). West needs to make it back to LA in two weeks for the biggest social event of the year, especially since it's for her! But can a few new friends, a hyperactive little cousin, and one extremely delicious guy make her stay anyway?

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 author you definitely need to keep your eye on.
I thought the story was cute, a uptown girl moving to a lowtown area but I felt like it wasn't detailed or advanced enough for my liking. It's a good quick read, but I feel like when the book starts to pick up, it ends. Plus I rather READ through the ending instead of being told what happened.
