Book: "The Regal Rules for Girls" by Jerramy Fine
This book caught my eye at the library and I had to pick it up. I had heard of the author and the subject was intriguing - how to act as a British royal...when you're not, well royal. lol. It was an interesting read and now has a prominent spot as a research tool for a future novel I'm working on involving young British royalty in the 21st century. It's a fascinating book filled with nearly everything you need to know to either blend in with royals or snag one for a date.
