After a tragic accident leaves Shelby Ryan permanently injured, she gives up all hope in happily-ever-afters. Shelby puts on a brave face while hiding her pain, but once she returns to school, everything changes. She starts receiving anonymous corny messages from a mysterious Prince Charming, and her nemesis, basketball star and bad boy, Sebastian, shows sudden interest in her.
Hilarity ensues as Shelby tries to uncover Prince Charming's real identity and come to terms with her true feelings for the last boy on Earth she ever thought she'd fall for: Sebastian Freaking Birch.
Will she be able to cope with the allure of the texting prince, or will Sebastian be the real-life prince in Shelby's fairytale?
It's one of those stories that stay with you, that speak directly to your heart and change you a bit. It's book about friendship and love but also about loss and coping with being only survivor.
Shelby was a cheerleader and had a twin brother who played basketball. One night after returning from a game, they got into horrible accident and only Shelby survived. Even she didn't came out unscratched, her leg amputated below the knee.
Road to recovery is long and when she is finally ready to go back to school, it gets very challenging. And then there is Sebastian, her brother's best friend and her biggest nemesis. They are always at each other throats, hilarity ensured. :) He is paying more and more attention to her. I love the dialogue between them, I was LOLing through the whole book. :) The best part of the book are the messages. Under the name Prince Charming someone is sending her cute messages (full of Disney princess references *swooning*).
It such a good story, I loved reading it, from the first till the last page. It's funny and swoony and just perfect. :)
Highly recommend it!
