What does it mean to
do wrong when no one punishes you? The Princesses
of Iowa is a smart and unflinching look at friendship, the nature of
entitlement, and growing up in the heartland.
Paige Sheridan has the perfect life. She’s pretty, rich, and
popular, and her spot on the homecoming court is practically guaranteed. But
when a night of partying ends in an it-could-have-been-so-much worse crash,
everything changes. Her best friends start ignoring her, her boyfriend grows
cold and distant, and her once-adoring younger sister now views her with contempt.
The only bright spot is her creative writing class, led by a charismatic new
teacher who encourages students to be true to themselves. But who is Paige, if
not the homecoming princess everyone expects her to be?
In this arresting and witty debut, a girl who was once high school
royalty must face a truth that money and status can’t fix and choose to either
live the privileged life of a princess or to own up to her mistakes and give up
everything she once held dear. Download and start listening now!
