Published by Simon and Schuster Genres: Young Adult, Love & Romance
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?
Texting Prince Charming is about teenage romance. It starts out by knowing Shelby’s background, what she was doing on the night of her and her families car accident. I felt her pain knowing that she is now the only one left in her family. I have to say I cried for her. Shelby was burying her feelings because she couldn’t face them right away. But I felt them for her. Even through the mess after the accident she finds love, in all places on Instagram (with the help of her love interest and his sister in real life), with little quotes from children’s love stories such as Cinderella, The Little Mermiad, etc.
We don’t typically hear or read romance stories who have one of the main characters as an amputee. It was refreshing to see that in this book, because it tells us that we can still find that person who is perfect for us. Someone who helps us to open our hearts, our minds, to love ourselves and feel confident from within. In addition to all of the above I loved that it was quite different from what I usually read.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to read in the YA genre. I’d like to thank Bewitching Book tour’s for allowing both of the author’s and myself to be able to connect. I would love to keep in touch with you gals.
