The Prince and the Pauper gets a Geekerella-style makeover in this witty and heartfelt novel for those who believe in the magic of fandom—now with an excerpt from Bookish and the Beast.
Imogen Lovelace is an ordinary fangirl on an impossible mission: to save her favorite Starfield character, Princess Amara, from being killed off. On the other hand, the actress who plays Amara wouldn’t mind being axed. Jessica Stone doesn’t even like being part of the Starfield franchise—and she’s desperate to leave the intense scrutiny of fandom behind.
Though Imogen and Jess have nothing in common, they do look strangely similar to one another—and a case of mistaken identity at ExcelsiCon sets off a chain of events that will change both of their lives. When the script for the Starfield sequel leaks, with all signs pointing to Jess, she and Imogen must trade places to find the person responsible. The deal: Imogen will play Jess at her signings and panels, and Jess will help Imogen’s best friend run their booth.
But as these “princesses” race to find the script leaker—in each other’s shoes—they’re up against more than they bargained for. From the darker side of fandom to unexpected crushes, Imogen and Jess must find a way to rescue themselves from their own expectations...and redefine what it means to live happily ever after.
Wonderful series about the power of geekdom and fandoms. If you’ve ever been a hardcore fan of just about anything, then you would understand. This time around we get a modern twist of The Prince and the Pauper when we follow celebrity Jessica Stone and her doppelgänger Imogen Lovelace as they switch places and try and right the wrongs going on in their respective lives. Both learn the power of fandoms along with the good, the bad, the ugly, and all that that entails.
Fun book but ehh
I liked it’s story line.
But It lacked a couple things.
