Secrets of a Reluctant Princess Blog Tour with Guest Post and Signed Book Giveaway

Secrets of a Reluctant Princess by Casey Griffin
Publication Date: March 7, 2017
Publisher: Entangled Teen

At Beverly Hills High, you have to be ruthless to survive…

Adrianna Bottom always wanted to be liked. But this wasn’t exactly what she had in mind. Now, she’s in the spotlight … and out of her geeky comfort zone. She’ll do whatever it takes to turn the rumor mill in her favor—even if it means keeping secrets. So far, it’s working.

Wear the right clothes. Say the right things. Be seen with the right people.

Kevin, the adorable sketch artist who shares her love of all things nerd, isn’t exactly the right people. But that doesn’t stop Adrianna from crushing on him. The only way she can spend time with him is in disguise, as Princess Andy, the masked girl he’s been LARPing with. If he found out who she really was, though, he’d hate her.

The rules have been set. The teams have their players. Game on.

High school is a time when many people struggle to fit in. What was your experience in high school?

Wow, high school. What a time in anyone’s life. You’re going through so many changes, both physically and mentally. You face all sorts of new challenges as you move from childhood to adulthood, all the while, trying to overcome all those hormones. Can you say “awkward”?

But looking back, I had a pretty good experience in high school. Sure, it had potential for disaster written all over it. At the time, it felt like one wrong move and the world would collapse like the precariously piled junk you refused to clean off your bedroom floor. I think teenagers are always doubting themselves in some way, always feeling uncertain. I was particularly hard on myself. My saving grace was the people I surrounded myself with.

Honestly, I think most students in my school got along—except for your occasional scrap. My graduating class was pretty supportive of each other, but there are always those few. Every school has them. You know, the troublemakers, the bullies, the ones that could make your life miserable. Did I always avoid humiliation? Did I always make the best decisions? No. But the thing that got me through it was my friends. I surrounded myself with good people and positivity.

If I could give anyone advice on surviving high school, it would be just that. If you radiate positivity, you will receive it in return. Surround yourself with good people and good things. Seek out the positive, and it will overcome the negative.
