You may know author Connie Glynn as Noodlerella from her famous Youtube channel. Over 900,000 followers tune in as the pink-haired blonde belts out Disney songs, makes magenta mac and cheese, and dishes about relationships and daily life.
Glynn’s debut novel, Undercover Princess—book one of the Rosewood Hall Chronicles—introduces a world of dazzling settings, engaging characters and plenty of intrigue. Glynn’s on-screen honesty and perky princess persona are embodied in the book’s heroine, 14-year-old Lottie Pumpkin.
Lottie has one prized possession, a glittering tiara that was a gift from her now-deceased mother who raised her to be kind, brave and unstoppable. Her dying wish was for Lottie to one day attend Rosewood Hall. Amazingly, Lottie wins a scholarship to the ivy-covered “Hogwarts meets Hollywood” boarding school.
As soon as Lottie arrives at Rosewood, rumors begin to fly. Her classmates think she’s the reclusive princess of Maradova, not a sweet country girl from Cornwall. But Lottie has learned the true princess of Maradova is Ellie Wolf, her black-haired, angst-filled roommate. Ellie has fled to Rosewood in order to soak up a few years of normal life before taking on the responsibilities of royalty. Since Lottie has dreamed of becoming a princess and Ellie longs to be ordinary, a perfect switch is devised. Unfortunately someone, a malevolent someone, learns their secret.
Glynn has created a rich, vibrant world in Undercover Princess. Readers will readily embrace the boarding school and royalty storylines, the hints of romance, and the intriguing realm and mystery of Maradova. Faced with numerous crises, Lottie struggles but manages to remain true to her kind, brave, unstoppable self.
