Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—Becca is not looking forward to a boring riverboat cruise through Europe with her family, but things take an exciting turn when she meets Nikolai, crown prince of Mondovia and heir to the throne. No more than a day or two elapses before Becca and Nikolai fall in love, and though Nikolai poses as a commoner, it does not take very long before the press catches up with him. The idea of a handsome prince gone AWOL from his kingdom will appeal to many readers, but those seeking a more credible portrait of a European royal may be disappointed to discover that this prince uses far too many American expressions and is a bit too picture-perfect. Becca, repeatedly gushing that she "can't believe" she is "dating a real prince" seems far more like a lovesick high school groupie than a young woman closer to adulthood. Snapshots of notable European landmarks are mentioned briefly and add little to the plot, though the main protagonists spend a great deal of time traveling on and off a riverboat. The predictable plot should appeal primarily to teens content with Harlequin novelettes and Walt Disney—style romances. Though Royally Lost is not a lost cause, meatier royal fare can be found in Meg Cabot's The Princess Diaries (HarperCollins, 2000) or Scholastic's "Royal Diaries" series.—Etta Anton, Yeshiva of Central Queens, NY

From the Back Cover

What would it be like to fall in love with a prince?

Dragged on a family trip to Europe's ancient cities, Becca wants nothing more than to go home. Trapped with her emotionally distant father, overeager stepmother, and a brother who only wants to hook up with European hotties, Becca is miserable. That is, until she meets Nikolai, a guy as mysterious as he is handsome. And she unknowingly finds herself with a runaway prince.

Nikolai has everything a guy could ask for—he's a crown prince, heir to the throne, and girls adore him. But the one thing he doesn't have . . . is freedom. After staging a revolt, he flees his kingdom and goes undercover on his own European tour.

When Nikolai and Becca meet, it's their differences that draw them together. Sparks fly as they share a whirlwind of adventures, all the while dodging his royal guard. But Becca's family vacation ends in a matter of days. Will Nikolai and Becca be forced to say good-bye when his destiny catches up to him, or will they change history forever?

Like Becca, he was a very well written character.
Although I didn't feel that there was much substance to the story, it was okay because I wasn't expecting that anyway.

Overall, this was just a cute story that I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a quick read full of romance.

This is the fourth book I have read by Angie Stanton and by now I know that she is an author that I can turn to when I am looking for a "cute pick me up" type of read. Her books always have cute guys and adorable romances. I have also been noticing that I have been reading a lot of Europe books lately. I think it it s a theme for summer. It is a theme that I am really enjoying. It helps make the book feel like a fun vacation. And speaking of vacations, the European cruise that Becca and her family went on sounded pretty awesome. And then on top of a pretty epic vacation, she goes and meets a PRINCE at her very first stop. I mean, it is every girls dream.

Becca and Nikolai meet they are instantly drawn to each other. It was a bit like insta love, but not exactly because the prince didn't take one look at Becca and fall in love. He looked at her and thought she was interesting because he some similarities in her. They both have problems with their parents- like every other teenage on the planet. So maybe it wasn't something totally unique that drew them together, but it was enough to catch his interest. Then once Nikolai met her, she kept his interest because she had no idea who he was. Nikolai is not used to people being able to speak freely around him, and I think that is what he liked the most. He felt like a normal teenager with her.

Royally Lost was a very cute story. The only hold up I had with it, was that it felt a bit unrealistic and convenient at times. For the cruise they stopped at a different city every day and for the first couple of cities Nikolai just happened to be there at the same time.

I have read all of Angie Stanton's books and each time I do I come away with a smile on my face and a warm feeling in my heart. She truly knows how to write a story that keeps you interested and also keeps a smile on your face.  Royally Lost was no different. I know that this book was classified as New Adult but I would actually label it as Mature YA.  This book is a "clean" read but is still able to give you warm fuzzies.  The story flowed at a great pace and I truly felt like a part of the story.  This book sort of had the feel of the movies Chasing Liberty and The Prince and Me.  If you liked those movies you will like this book.  I loved that Becca (h) was from Madison, was great reading things that I recognized bc it's my home town :)

Becca and Nikolai were great characters.  They were so similar but still very opposite.  Becca was a girl who lost her mother at a young age and felt neglected by her father and was forced to like her step-mom.  All she really wanted to do was find who she really was.  She is forced to go on a European vacation where she ends up meeting Nikolai.  Fate has tossed these two together at every turn.  Nikolai is the Prince of Mondovia but struggles to be who he wants to be.  He doesn't want to follow in his fathers footsteps.  So he runs away and that is when fates steps in the way for the form of Becca.  These two then decide to take a road trip all over Europe.  I loved the pace the author took with this couple....she made everything feel believable.

If you are a fan of love stories based around road trips...then this book is for you.  If you are looking for that "clean", fun, light, no drama love story then you need to read this book.  It will definitely leave you smiling and warm your heart :)

Royally Lost is fluffy chick-lit. I don’t mean that in a bad way! It’s girly and not likely to ever happen (though many girls will dream about it!). But I still like chick-list and I liked this book. Yes, it’s soo over the top and I didn’t learn anything about myself really, but hey – it’s fun! Similar to Over You by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus, this is a good time and I liked going on the ride. It’s , for lack of a better word, cute. And I’d say it’s definitely on the younger end of Young Adult, and could even be read by middle graders (despite the fact that the characters are 18). By far, my favorite part about this book was its setting. Becca’s familiy is on boat trip on the Danube and one of their stops is Vienna, Austria. I loved that the book showcased Vienna, which I feel like is always in the shadows of Paris and Berlin. Vienna is a beautiful city and I enjoyed hearing about Stephensdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral), the Vienna Riding School, and Schoenbrunn – and the best part? I’ve been to ALL of these places. Vienna was my home for a little bit in 2008, when I did my study abroad there and I’m so happy that this book was able to capture the greatness of this city. I only wish that the entire book had been set here! There are so many good spots for scenes – like the HundertWasserHaus! MuseumsQuartier! Karlsplatz! I recommend this one for readers who are in the mood for something super light and fun!

The characters of this vacation read were endearing, if a little two-dimensional. The plot is predictable and melodramatic, but still charming. The problem? Some of the most awkward grammar issues I've struggled through in even fanfic or self-published work. That was distracting enough that I couldn't finish the entire story.
