DUELLING PRINCES BY TYNE O'CONNELL"Duelling Princes is sure to have fans of O'Connell's previous novels rolling on the floor laughing their royal crowns off." SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL, USA"Funny expos©♭ of It-girlschool life." ELLE GIRL UK"A deliciously naughty insider's guide to sensational secret life of Britain & Europe's royal teens from the midnight feasts, incredibly close friendships & romances to the tabloid escapades and code language - thank goodness there is a dictionary of posh teen slang included." BOOK CHIT CHAT"A right royal read" THE MAYFAIR TIMESIt is sure to have fans of the previous novels rolling on the floor laughing their royal crowns off. SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL, USA"Outrageously funny and a serious contender for the teen chick-lit throne." ⁰́₄ THE BOOKSELLER on Pulling Princes.Editorial Review From School Library Journal"Featuring an American teen at a British boarding school, O'Connell's Calypso Chronicles blend appealing components of such popular series as Gossip Girls and the Princess Diaries. In this instalment, Calypso is at the top of her game, as much in her fencing technique as in her romance with HRH Freds. Then her mother arrives unannounced, and slapstick machinations ensue as Calypso attempts to juggle fencing, Freds, and Mom, who may or may not be filing for divorce. A fencing and British-slang glossary helps to bridge the transatlantic gap, and there is enough moony romance to appease fans drawn by the series' Cinderella premise." Jennifer Mattson ℗♭ American Library Association. All rights reservedSet in a fictional Eton College where Princes William and Harry attended & the nearby St Mary's Ascot school attended by Princess Caroline of Monaco and which the authors daughter attended, The Pulling Princes series are like being let in on the sensational secret life of Britain's aristocratic and toff teens.Although entirely fictional, the books accurate portrayal of the hitherto closed world of Royal teens, created feverish speculation and comparisons to actual royals and Aristocratic teens ⁰́₃ specifically Prince William and Prince Harry ⁰́₃ were inevitable. After a heated bidding war, Bloomsbury won the USA rights to the series at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2004. They have now been re-released in Kindle format.Dating the second in line to the throne, Prince Freddie has made Year Eleven at St. Augustine's the best year at St Augustine's so far for American Calypso Kelly. Together with best friends Star and Georgina, and new chums Portia and Indie, LA-born Calypso at last seems to fit into the exclusive all girls Boarding school near Windsor Castle.With the national fencing trials coming up, balancing school, friendships, and a royal romance is a lot harder than she imagined. Something will have to give, but what or whom will it be? Picking up where Stealing Princes left off, this funny, fast-paced third book chronicling the life and times of Calypso Kelly will not disappoint.When her LA parents arrive in London causing mayhem, Calypso finds that having her prince, winning her bouts, evading the British tabloid press and staying on the right side of the Horrible Hon,'s Honey & Poppy O'Hare while convincing her parents to start acting like adults may be more than any girl can handle.Just as well that her fabulous toff friends and the Nuns are on side to help Calypso with the chaos and the fun!"Funny expos©♭ of It-girlschool life." ELLE GIRL UK"Budding Anglophiles ....will soak up the flood of upper-class British culture in this book. Fans of Cecily von Ziegesar's "Gossip Girl" series and Zoey Dean's "A-List" series (both Little, Brown) should enjoy it".⁰́₃ WASHINGTON COUNTY COOPERATIVE LIBRARY SERVICES"Give this to fans of Princess Mia and Georgia Nicholson
