When a well-dressed woman steps out of a bubble and wants to know if you'd like to become a substitute princess, do you

A) run
B) faint
C) say yes?

For Desi Bascomb, who's been longing for some glamour in her Idaho life, the choice is a definite C). Desi has a rare ability: with the help of "Royal Rouge," she can temporarily transform into the exact look-alike of any princess who needs her subbing services. Dream come true, right?

Well, Desi soon discovers that subbing involves a lot more than wearing a tiara and waving at cameras.... In this winning debut, one girl's dream of glamour transforms into the desire to make a positive impact. And an impact Desi makes, one royal fiasco at a time.
Although, more on to the tween side, Princess For Hire is an adorable read full of witty, humor, and magic. It's a short and fast paced novel with appealing and delightful characters.

The premise of this novel was very refreshing.. the 'world of substitute princessing'. I found it very cute! And I adore all the magic potential!

Desi, a typical teen, is a humorous, adorable, and strong character. She always stood up for herself, and always tried her best or something new for each princess. She always tried to impact each ones lives.

Her journey was an exciting roller coaster ride. She encountered very different princesses, all with various personalities and cultures. It was nice for me to see Desi put herself in other peoples shoes and change herself in the process. Her assignments were fun, even though she broke some of the 'job protocols'.

What I find really cool about this is that, not only was she subbing and helping each princess, but she was helping herself, out, too. Through her assignments, she'd learn some lessons to her own, real life.

Fun, adorable, and magical, a cute debut for tweens!
