From Sarah Strohmeyer, author of. Smart Girls Get What They Want comes this romantic comedy about one girl's summer job from hell. Think The Devil Wears Prada set in Disney World. When cousins Zoe and Jess land summer internships at the Fairyland Kingdom theme park, they are sure they've hit the jackpot. With perks like hot Abercrombie-like Prince Charmings and a chance to win the coveted $25,000 Dream & Do grant, what more could a girl want? Once Zoe arrives, however, she's assigned to serve "The Queen"-Fairyland's boss from hell. From spoon-feeding her evil lapdog caviar, to fetching midnight sleeping tonics, Zoe fears she might not have what it takes to survive the summer, much less win the money. Soon backstabbing interns, a runaway Cinderella, and cutthroat competition make Zoe's job more like a nightmare than a fairy tale. What will happen when Zoe is forced to choose between serving The Queen and saving the prince of her dreams?
My Thoughts and Review:
If I could just use a handful of select words to sum up this story I would say this was a fun, cutsey, funny read that any lover of YA should read.
Zoe was pretty fun, I really loved all her cheesy puns and one liners. She was loyal and a bit crazy and just yeah, a really fun character. I know, I know, I need a new adjective but I can't help it that just seems to be the best word to sum up this whole book.
The Queen, Tinker Bell, Ian, Dash, R.J., Jess, this is full of funny, sometimes naughty, a little eccentric, lots of crazy, sweet characters.
Really I had a blast trying to figure out what in the world was up with the Queen, who Dash really was, if Ian was really charming and what exactly Zoe was going to do about them all.
There were so many funny moments in this one that I found myself smiling almost the whole way through. In fact, I read this in one sitting it went so fast.
Strohmeyer did a great job with this and it makes me want to pick up one of her other books to read just because I know I will have a great time while reading it.
