Royal Rebel

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Usborne Publishing Ltd

Thirteen-year-old Lily is passionate about launching herself as a fashion vlogger, and her Tiara Girl videos are getting more and more popular. There’s just one problem – she’s also heir to the Queendom of Waldenburg, and princesses are very much NOT supposed to be posting film online of themselves plaiting their dog’s hair.

Living in an 800-room fairy tale castle might sound like a dream come true, but being a princess isn’t all that easy. You don’t get any privacy, you don’t get to have a bad day in public and you definitely don’t get to wear your favourite cool top and jeans to public functions. Lily’s also about to start Princess School in a few months, and she knows that things are going to get super intense when that happens. Can she keep her Tiara Girl identity a secret, especially when more and more people are watching her videos?

An empowering and fun, relatable read for tweens, Royal Rebel presents a young girl growing up in a matriarchal community and navigating family responsibilities alongside school, friends and being herself. It’s a quick, dynamic read, full of messaged conversations, lists and fun facts that complement Lily’s authentic and charming tween voice.
