A Reese Witherspoon Book Club YA Pick!
A hilarious and heartfelt novel perfect for fans of To All the Boys I've Loved Before and The Princess Diaries.
Izumi Tanaka has lived an uneventful 17 years in her small town, keenly aware of all the ways in which her family is different from most of her classmates’. But then Izumi discovers a clue to her previously unknown father’s identity...and he’s none other than the Crown Prince of Japan.
Soon she’s traveling overseas to meet the father she never knew and discover the country she's only dreamed of. But being a princess isn’t all ball gowns and tiaras. There are conniving cousins, a hungry press, a scowling but handsome bodyguard who just might be her soulmate and thousands of years of tradition and customs to learn practically overnight. Izzy soon finds herself caught between worlds, and between versions of herself - back home, she was never 'American' enough, and in Japan, she must prove she’s 'Japanese' enough. Will Izumi crumble under the weight of the crown, or will she live out her fairy-tale, happily ever after?

Sweet fairy tale but not sickly
A bit of cute escapism, but with enough real life not to be sickly. I really enjoyed listening to this book, and am hoping for a sequel! 🌸
