I loved this book! I rate it a 5 out of 5. This book helped me get into reading and really helped to discover my reading interests. I would recommend this book for people who like romance but also drama and conflict. I really love the storyline, characters, and the relationships between the characters! Once I started I couldn’t put it down! The storyline had many surprising events and kept me on my toes and wanting more. I really felt like I actually knew the characters. They were described with a lot of detail and I loved how they each had a very distinctive personality. I really enjoyed the relationships between each character. You could feel every emotion and feeling that they felt towards one another. I loved the aspect of America having to choose between her first love and the prince. The cover of the book is amazing! It portrays the story and America very well. I would definitely read the book just based on the cover! Overall I thought this was an amazing book! You should definitely give it a read sometime!
