About the Author

Jaclyn Weist is an Idaho farm girl who grew up loving to read. She developed a love for writing as a senior in high school, when her dad jokingly said she was the next Dr. Seuss (not even close, but very sweet). She met her husband, Steve, at Brigham Young University, and they have six happy, crazy children who encourage her writing. After owning a bookstore and running away to have adventures in Australia, they settled back down in their home in Utah. Jaclyn now spends her days herding her kids to various activities and trying to remember what she was supposed to do next.

I'm not the target audience (by about 30 years). At the same time, I love teen lit. So... I'm giving this Amazon's "It was okay" star review because I found that some of it worked, and some of it just...didn't. I imagine teen girls would bump up to one more star...maybe. I did enjoy the play on a fairy tale, with nuances that gave it more mystery and excitement. I loved how human Jenny was and I think she's very relatable for teen girls. I liked that I thought it was going to be predictable, and then it wasn't. The twists were welcome. It did not end at all how I thought it would, yet that was okay.

What didn't work for me, though, was the depth of emotions for both Princess Genevieve and Jenny Adams. They (and the key characters around them) accepted the whole place/time/body switch premise way too quickly. As if they were just exchange students from Russia or something. Realistically, I think they should have been freaking out a lot more. I did like watching each girl learn about her new world, but got frustrated at (a) how wishy-washy they were about going home to their own families because (b) they fell irrevocably in crazy, mad love with boys they had just met. A whole lotta kissing going on for girls who were not used to interaction with boys at that level. Less smooching and more really getting to know the heart of these gorgeous boys would have convinced me that the girls' ultimate choices were justified and not hormonal. The solution at the end (I don't want to give spoilers) felt shallow to me, and I think people would have been more ripped up because ties were formed in both worlds for both girls. It's just a story that doesn't allow for a 100% "happy ending"...which fairy tales kinda sorta are supposed to do.

4 1/2 stars! So I have to admit, I am a sucker for a fairy tale retelling. Especially when it is twisted into something original. This is a really fun version involving Sleeping Beauty. I enjoyed seeing the two girls adapt (and grow) in their new settings. I loved that they took charge of their own destiny and didn’t wait for things to happen to them. I loved that Jenny came from a functional (yet crazy) family and that both girls had a support system within their family. It was also a cause of angst for me as the story progressed, but (no spoilers) it was resolved nicely.

The bad guy is sneaky and scary. I ended up staying up way too late reading this book because I just had to know ‘what happens next.’ And the cute guys and the kissing were a nice bonus :).

If you love fairy tales, magic, cool girls that can wield swords and adventure, this is a book for you.

I love a good fairytale, especially if it's remade in an interesting an unique way. THE PRINCESS AND THE PROM QUEEN is exactly that!

The author did a great job of differentiating between Jenny and Genevieve's voices. They felt like very distinct characters, and I never struggled separating them out in my mind. Furthermore, I liked both of them equally! I kept turning pages because I couldn't wait to find out what happened with each girl.

I really loved some of the minor characters in this book, particularly Ammon. He was just a great brother. I really loved Lucy and the love interests as well.

I found the fairytale world fun and captivating, and loved some of the things Genevieve found unusual in the 21st century (toothbrushes that don't hurt!). It made me really believe both girls had traveled to an unfamiliar place and time.

There were some really surprising plot twists in this book that I loved. It's hard to catch me off guard, and the author did that in this novel more than once. But I think my favorite part of the whole book was the ending. It was unexpected, and so perfect! As I got closer and closer to the end, I kept thinking, "There is no way she can wrap this up in the amount of pages left!" But she did and I loved it and it was perfect.

A fun, romantic, and CLEAN read perfect for anyone. The book is written for a YA market, but I think tweens and younger would find this book enjoyable too.

4.5 stars raised to 5. I received an eARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Super cute! It definitely kept me on my toes as I could not guess where it was going, and the ending surprised me very much!
But it was adorable and fun to read. Easy to get through, story that kept my attention, and an overall fun tale about past & future and fairytales & real life clashing and breaking all barriers! Plus I loved that it had moments of suspense and wonder, when I the princess was not just a "help me" kind of a person, but also did not step out of character, since her character was raised to know how to care for herself - due to the past & future thing ....
That sounds confusing, but I promise you will understand within the first chapter! So go read it and you'll see not only what I mean, but just how fun this book really is!

This book was such a fun read full of twists I just didn't see coming! At first, I was worried it would be your typical YA cliche, but it incorporates history and fairy tale in a very unexpected way.

Content is completely clean and appropriate for all ages. I'll be reading this one with my daughter!
