Wishlist Wednesday #14

Hosted by Pen to Paper



Publication date: April 23, 2013

Publisher: HarperTeen

From Sarah Strohmeyer, author of Smart Girls Get What They Want, comes this romantic comedy about one girl's summer job from hell. Think The Devil Wears Prada set in Disney World.

When cousins Zoe and Jess land summer internships at the Fairyland Kingdom theme park, they are sure they've hit the jackpot. With perks like hot Abercrombie-like Prince Charmings and a chance to win the coveted $25,000 Dream & Do grant, what more could a girl want?

Once Zoe arrives, however, she's assigned to serve "The Queen"-Fairyland's boss from hell. From spoon-feeding her evil lapdog caviar, to fetching midnight sleeping tonics, Zoe fears she might not have what it takes to survive the summer, much less win the money.

Soon backstabbing interns, a runaway Cinderella, and cutthroat competition make Zoe's job more like a nightmare than a fairy tale. What will happen when Zoe is forced to choose between serving The Queen and saving the prince of her dreams?

Why I'm wishing: 

I have been in a really big contemporary phase lately and not only that it is contemporary, but the cover screams that too with all the colors. Then of course, it is about Disney, summer internships, and cousins (instead of sisters or best friends, hey, I like something different). Although I have never seen The Devil Wears Prada, this book sounds so interesting, I would be perfectly thrilled fine if this was on my doorstep.

What are you wishing for this week?

  4. I didn't read the author's previous book, but this one is on my wish list too and sounds so cute and really funny/quirky! I love the whole description, but I can't decide which phrase pulled me in more: "spoon-feeding her evil lapdog caviar" or "a runaway Cinderella". :)
