Prince William, Maximilian Minsky, and Me
author: Holly-Jane Rahlens
Nelly Sue Edelmeister knows exactly who she is: a skinny, brainy thirteen-year-old Berlin schoolgirl. But thatís before she develops a hopeless crush on a certain British royal. And itís definitely before she meets the oddly attractive Maximilian Minsky, her last hope for making the basketball team before it heads off to England and she is virtually thrown into Prince Williamís arms. Meanwhile, her parentsí bickering is stressing her out, as is her bat mitzvah looming ahead. Readers will relate to this funny, heartfelt tale of a determined teen as she makes some surprising discoveries about life, loss, love, and faith.
"Nellyís voice rings true as she deals with friends, family, love, and religion. . . . This fast-paced work will grab readers from the start." ó School Library Journal
