Book Review: Just Your Average Princess by Kristina Springer

Title: Just Your Average Princess
Author: Kristina Springer
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Release Date: October 11, 2011

Jamie Edwards has loved everything about growing up on a pumpkin patch, but ever since her cousin Milan Woods arrived, things have really stunk. Jamie can’t imagine it was easy for Milan to leave her life back in Los Angeles and move to Average, Illinois, population one thousand. But it’s kind of hard to feel sorry for her since (a) Milan’s drop-dead gorgeous; (b) she’s the daughter of two of Hollywood’s hottest film stars; (c) she’s captured the attention of everyone in town, including Danny, Jamie’s crush since forever; and (d) she’s about to steal the title of Pumpkin Princess right out from underneath Jamie!

Just Your Average Princess is a quick, light, fun read. I enjoyed it but it was predictable. Other than a the fun pumpkin farm setting there was not much original about this story. Sometimes this is just the kind of book I’m in the mood for, an easy to read book I can finish in one sitting that brings a smile to my face.

I loved the Pumpkin Patch setting.  We have a pumpkin patch that does a lot of fun things at Halloween but nothing the likes of the Pumpkin Patch in this book.

More a “tween” read than teen read, this book is clean and I’d have no issue with my 11 year old daughter reading it.
