Review: The Princess Protection Program by Alex London

When Rosamund is woken with a kiss after being asleep for 100 years, her first instinct is to flee. With her prince in pursuit she opens a door and steps from her story into the protected haven of Home Educational Academy, where princesses find refuge from their fairy tales.

The young women (and one prince) at the academy all had their tales go awry in some way, and Vera, the headmistress of the school, promises to educate them and protect them before sending them on their way. But Rosamund finds that all is not right at the school. For one thing, the lessons are always the same. For another, no one seems to leave. Is the HEA just another place to be trapped in a story?

The Princess Protection Program by Alex London puts a modern twist on classic fairy tales and reimagines what happily ever after could look like. Rosamund is a spunky character who makes friends quickly in her new world, but she also likes to question why things are the way they are and what would happen if a story changed. She also has sympathy for the prince she left behind, who can’t move on but must wait for her to come back.

It’s fun and thought-provoking and has a few surprises as the story goes along, which is just the kind of tale that can engage young readers and keep them turning pages until the end. I recommend The Princess Protection Program for ages 8 to 12.
