About this title

Synopsis:

Introducing Princess Amanda. This engaging, redheaded 11-year-old princess can't wait to spend some time with her very busy parents. But when plans change and she must go to a party for her cousin instead, she decides to find her own fun. She never imagines she'll end up pretending to be an American!Meet American tourist Emily Chornak, an energetic, redheaded 11-year-old who is accompanying her parents on a business trip to England. Emily hopes to sightsee with her parents, but business has to come first so she is sent on a "kiddie" tour of the city. When the tour group visits a palace, Emily finds herself mistaken for a party guest. The Duchess of York takes readers into the fascinating world of a princess's life and introduces two marvelously different but equally appealing characters. Together Amanda and Emily form a friendship that shows how wonderful it is to be exactly who you are.

From Publishers Weekly:

The Duchess's first foray into middle-grade fiction may be something less than the jewel in the crown of that genre, but these companion novels have a solid mass appeal. The plots are as predictable as they are improbable: in the first, set in London, the look-alike heroines Princess Amanda of Powers Court and Emily Jane Chornak of Brooklyn Heights inadvertently swap identities; in the second, which is set in New York City, Amanda and Emily foil a ring of jewelry thieves and help the homeless. However formulaic, the stories unfold with a fair amount of brio, aided by dialogue generously sprinkled with "smashing," "awesome" and the like, and by insider info about palace protocol. Breezy as the stories are, the author grafts onto them a convincing poor-little-rich-girl pathos, as both sets of parents are so busy that they continually neglect and disappoint their daughters; the royal pair is particularly chilly. (Windsor-watchers may be interested to learn that the royal characters' relation to the queen remains tactfully obscure.) Readers who have fantasized about being a princess-or rubbing shoulders with one-will find these sufficiently glittery good fun. Ages 7-11. (Nov.) FYI: A sweepstakes offered by the publisher will award a trip for four to London, where tea with the author is on the agenda.
