  • If American History class had been about the Washington family, I would have paid much better attention. The lives of the American royal family will hook you in the very first pages and never let go. Katharine McGee does the remarkable thing of creating an alternate American world that is both relatable, believable, fantastical, aspirational, and completely addictive. What really shines is the perfect balance of blending real history and an imagined kingdom and creating a story that reads both like a fairy tale but also something utterly modern and fresh. I loved, loved, loved this book and can't wait for the next one.

  • With the seemingly endless influx of new novels hitting the real and virtual bookshelves every day, the choice can seem overwhelming. But, occasionally a novel comes along with the promise of delivering escapism by way of a subject matter - royals, romance and a Gossip Girl-esque scandal - that is a no-brainer must-read . . . American Royals [is] just such a novel set to ignite and delight book clubs and literary-loving fans of The Princess Diaries, Gossip Girl, The Crown or even just the real-life British royals.

    Kirkus Reviews
  • McGee crafts a deliciously soapy American royal family . . . McGee's characters are well-crafted and flawed, giving the narrative emotional texture that elevates it above the dramatic formula

    Publishers Weekly
