The Royal We

Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan. Grand Central, $26 (464p) ISBN 978-1-4555-5710-3
Cocks and Morgan, the bloggers behind Go Fug Yourself, charm readers with this modern-day Cinderella tale. When American Rebecca "Bex" Porter decides to travel to Oxford, U.K., as an exchange student in the fall of 2007, the last thing she imagines is that she might fall in love with the country's future king. Prince Nicholas—also known as Nick Wales—is used to the hassles of the monarchy, but in Bex he sees his future and a chance for a normal, real relationship. Bex's American-ness bothers some of the upper crust Brits, and the press relentlessly focuses on her. A series of breakups ensues, and familial missteps further complicate matters, but readers will root for Bex to get her happy ending. Parallels to the love story of Prince William and Kate Middleton are obvious, but the authors create their own unique and endearing characters with Bex and Nick—along with an entertaining cast of characters including lovable rogue Prince Freddie, Nick's younger brother; Bex's twin, Lacey; and a bunch of colorful school chums. Royal watchers and chick-lit fans alike will delight in this sparkling tale. Pure fun. (Apr.)
