THE PRINCE AND THE SNOWGIRL by Simon Cheshire

THE PRINCE AND THE SNOWGIRL

Age Range: 14 & up

KIRKUS REVIEW

Lovers of British humor can feed their addiction with this hilarious romp through snow and relationships. High-schooler Tom has a nice side job working as a celebrity look-alike. He’s the image of Britain’s Prince George, but that isn’t helping him begin a romance with the love of his life, the gorgeous and super-genius Louise. He’s on the school ski team with Louise and two other friends: Jack, master of comedy who’s undergoing serious depression, and Allan, superficial clothes-horse who actually scores dates with Louise. The team has a slight chance to win the national skiing championship, but the tangled friendships intervene and Tom impersonates the Prince once too often. Cheshire keeps the humor lively and perfectly tuned as Tom copes with what he views as the wreckage of his entire life. Quite funny and full of wonderfully eccentric characters and delicious irony. Spot on. (Fiction. YA)
