9781582348520: Dumping Princes (Calypso Chronicles)

Dating Britain's Prince Freddie is bliss as far as Calypso Kelly is concerned. Which is why she is appalled when her friends at the posh St. Augustine's School for girls decide to chuck their boyfriend and concentrate on ...their studies? Then Freddie does the unthinkable--he breaks up with Calypso--setting off a chain of events that includes a school-wide plan for a Counter Dump. But with her first international fending competition coming up in Italy, and a captivating new boy showering her with attention, Calypso will have to search her heart to decide whether to give her prince another chance, or to give him up for good.

About the Author:

Tyne O'Connell is the author of several successful adult romance novels, articles, and films. This is her fourth novel for young readers. She and her teenage daughter live in London. Visit Calypso at www.calypsochronicles.com.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7–10—American teen Calypso Kelly is back at her British boarding school in this hilarious installment in this series. Despite her observation that her boyfriend, Prince Freddie, is "boringly ordinary," she is appalled when her friends suggest that she break up with him in order to focus on preparing for her exams. After all, he has wonderful "sticky-outy" hair, and his kisses are sweetly addictive. However, she is dismayed when Freds beats her to the punch and sends her a humiliating text message. As it is unthinkable that a girl from Saint Augustine's should be dumped, all of the students, teachers, and resident nuns help Calypso to organize the perfect revenge-The Counter Dump. They enlist the aid of an adorable Scottish laird with a penchant for theatrical romance and, as a result, nothing goes according to plan. Calypso's engaging narrative reads like a conversation with a best girlfriend. Unfortunately, the background information is inserted a little clumsily, limiting the audience of this book to readers of the first three. Once past the awkward start, however, the novel gallops forward at a rollicking pace. With a liberal serving of engaging characters, slapstick comedy, and a fabulous boarding-school setting, Dumping Princes is the best in the series so far. It is sure to have fans of the previous novels rolling on the floor laughing their royal crowns off.—Heather M. Campbell, Philip S. Miller Library, Castle Rock, CO
