  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 January #1
    Though India is a democracy now, Jaya Rao of the Imperial House of Mysuru is still a princess, and she understands the expectations. At the top of the list is upholding her family's honor, which is why she's starting at St. Rosetta's International Academy, an elite boarding school, alongside her little sister, Isha. Also at the academy is Grey Emerson, a British aristocrat from the family of the Raos' biggest rivals. It's a deep rivalry: in fact, Grey believes he was cursed by Jaya's ancestor to die before his eighteenth birthday. As a result, he's angry, isolating himself from his classmates. But Jaya is determined to get her revenge on the Emersons, who recently targeted Isha in a public attack: she plans to make Grey fall in love with her, then break his heart. This lightly fantastical spin on Beauty and the Beast works in plenty of crowd-pleasing elements—an enemies-to-lovers romance, a boarding-school setting, an ebullient supporting cast. Fans of Menon's frothy, contemporary rom-coms will be excited for this venture into new territory. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Menon's debut, When Dimple Met Rishi (2017), was a New York Times best-seller, and its companion novels have been hotly anticipated. A national media campaign will get her newest into eager hands. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
