The Princesses of Iowa

author: M. Molly Backes

What does it mean to do wrong when no one punishes you? In this arresting and witty debut, a girl who was once high-school royalty must face a truth that money and status canít fix. She must choose between living the privileged life of a princess or owning up to her mistakes, thus giving up everything she once held dear. A smart and unflinching look at friendship, the nature of entitlement, and growing up in the heartland.

ďA painful but enlightening journey of self-awareness. . . . Powerfully evoked.Ē ó Publishers Weekly
