Princess Izzy And The E Street Shuffle

The Princess Diaries for adults! This clever and witty debut follows a fictitious princess whose royal advisor is a mechanic who takes his advice from Bruce Springsteen. Spunky, plucky Isabella Cordage has taken Bisbania's royal family by storm, having fallen in love with the Prince. But being the wife to the heir to the throne is a complicated matter, and Isabella's every aching misstep soon earns her the title "Dizzy Izzy."Determined to find herself a trustworthy adviser, she enlists her former car mechanic Geoffrey and brings him and his wife to live with them in Bisbania. Under Geoffrey's tutelage, which comes in the form of Bruce Springsteen lyrics, Isabella becomes the model of everything good and chic -- until tragedy strikes: an airplane piloted by Geoffrey, with the Prince as passenger, crashes, and only one body washes ashore.This contemporary fairy tale sports surprising secrets, hidden identities, and an anonymous narrator whose personal stake in revealing the story is gradually exposed.From Publishers WeeklyWith more twists and turns than a spiral staircase, this mostly silly, occasionally clever debut dresses up chick lit conventions with aristocratic titles and predicaments. Borrowing heavily from the lives of the British royals, Bartlett invents a modern-day prince and princess living in the fictional country of Bisbania. Prince Raphael makes the political error of marrying a woman he truly loves, his childhood friend Isabella Cordage. As soon as their engagement is announced, Isabella becomes gossip-page fodder-the media nickname her "Dizzy Izzy" for a spill she took down the castle staircase. In an attempt to protect her image, Princess Isabella turns for advice to Geoffrey Whitehall-Wright, an American, Yale-educated auto mechanic whom she met (and flirted with) while they were undergraduates together. In a belabored plot device, Geoffrey doles out advice in the form of Bruce Springsteen lyrics that Princess Isabella interprets as fashion tips. This fairy tale might offer some escapism for the teenybopper set partial to thePrincess Diaries movies.(Mar.)Copyright
