  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 December #1
    Eighteen-year-old Leo claims the esteemed title of Princess, but she is only a princess in name. Her family is neck-deep in financial ruin, and the spaceship they own is rapidly falling apart. To save her family, her father is pressuring her to snag a rich young bachelor during a decadent courting season of opulent parties called the Valg. Leo, however, doesn't wish to marry for money and only grudgingly participates in the festivities. Her life is upended when the lower-class boy whom she once loved and whose proposal she rejected returns wealthy and more handsome than ever. Amidst the rampant lies and deceit of her high-society world, Leo falls for Elliot again, despite the risk of being left with a broken heart this time around. While the plot is simplistic in nature, Donne's complex characters, who are deeply flawed and human, more than make up for it. Similar in spirit to Brightly Burning (2018), which staged Jane Eyre in space, this novel takes its cues loosely from Jane Austen's Persuasion with shimmering success. Grades 8-12.
