Content descriptions

General Note:
Series information from Goodreads.com.
Summary, etc.:
In an alternate America, princesses Beatrice and Samantha Washington and the two girls wooing their brother, Prince Jeffrey, become embroiled in high drama in the most glorious court in the world.
When America won the Revolutionary War, its people offered General George Washington a crown. Two and a half centuries later, the House of Washington still sits on the throne. As Princess Beatrice gets closer to becoming America's first queen regnant, the duty she has embraced her entire life suddenly feels stifling. Princess Samantha doesn't care much about anything-- except the one boy who is distinctly off-limits to her. And Samantha's twin, Prince Jefferson, has two very different girls vying to capture his heart. -- adapted from jacket

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 August #1
    It's our world, almost: after the Battle of Yorktown, General Washington was given a crown, and his descendants still sit on the American throne. Princess Beatrice will be the first woman to rule, her grandfather having abolished the rule that says only sons can inherit. Beatrice, 21, has never had a scandal—or a life—and the pressure to find a suitable partner is mounting. At 18, her twin siblings Samantha and Jefferson don't have the same kind of pressures, and Sam especially is starting to feel like no one cares what she does. Jeff, meanwhile, dumps the girl the public loves and falls for one they think is beneath him—but should the public get a say? McGee (The Thousandth Floor, 2016) stays surface level in the development of her speculative world; the American Court blends modern British and American politics, and there's little exploration of how history differs in this alternate reality. But for readers looking for intrigue—and for those who like their royal fever with a twist—this is a quick and delicious read. Grades 10-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
