The people of Rovenia, a former province of the Soviet Union, have voted to restore the monarchy as a tie to their past. For Alex, he must suddenly accept the role fo prince and heir, something he nver thought would happen. Now he is whisked off from his life in England to rovenia , a land he only knows from his grandfather's stories. How will he ever be accepted for who he is, in a role he never wanted?

The first time I read this I really liked it, and I still think the main storyline is good, and it's a book both boys a girls can enjoy.
But upon reading it a second time I notice all the plot holes. A lot of plot holes. Characters come in and have no point in being there, things happen with no explanation. I don't know, maybe I just grew up since the first reading of it.

I am surprised this was shelved in the Juvenile section of my library. It is definitely suited for a more mature audience. Not what I expected at all--I definitely wouldn't let a child read this due to the sexual references. It was interesting enough to keep me reading, but I didn't like it that much.

This book is looked-over, maybe because of the cover. It is a less funny Princess Diaries with a boy protagonist. I really enjoyed it.
