The Princess Trap

Stacks_princesstrap_130x130 Hello and welcome to Scholastic Booktalks where we recommend brand new Scholastic books that we think you will love. Today's booktalk: The Princess Trap, a sequel to The Princess Plot by Kirsten Boie.

Jenna is starting to adjust to the fact that the deceased king of Scandia was her father, making her the missing princess! But instead of resembling a glamorous movie, Jenna's life feels more like an annoying soap opera. Dealing with the constant supervision of her bodyguards, snotty boarding school students, and unscrupulous paparazzi is not exactly the reality Jenna expected when she learned of her royal blood. Her best friend, Bea, can't understand Jenna's complaints. After all, who wouldn't want to be a princess? But Jenna can’t even enjoy a slice of pizza in peace.

Far worse than having her picture in the tabloids though, is the civil unrest between the snooty southerners and lower-class northerners of Scandia. It does not look like it will be resolved anytime soon, and Jenna is not ready to deal with civil war – especially not before she’s had her first kiss!

Will Jenna be able to solve her country's problems, and solve her own problems? Read The Princess Trap to find out.

    Why does romantic stories always starting off as the guy as a total jerk in the first story and then he starts to be creepy nice. Always tickles your heart a little. lol just my observations.

    Another reason why I love this book and the prequel is because of the relationship between Jenna and Jonas. When the first met (Princess plot), he hated her but now they are gf and bf. I love that!

    I loved this book! I think it was better than the first book, the Princess Plot. I feel that way because I love the romance scenes going on between Jenna and Jonas and Malena and Perry.

    Hey FANS! I am such a fan of these books (which there is 2 of them, Princess Plot and Trap) I am on the hundredth page and my oh my!
    Okay so hehe i feel like spoling itt!((:
    So Malena and Perry are together and might of kissed.
    Jonas was about to tell Jenna how he felt but Mr. Petterson ruined the moment.
    After Jonas goes looking for Perry in the summerhouse of the Von Thunbergs house. He finds Ylva. Jenna walks in to find Jonas and sees them together. She thought that Jonas was talking about Ylva when he said
    “Malena isnt the only girl in the world…”
    When he probably meant Jenna!!! SOOO EXCITINGG
    Oh and Perry runs away from going to military academy.
