SOMEDAY MY PRINCE WILL COME (True Adventures of A Wannabe Princess) is an enchanting story about an American girl who at age six, falls for a then fellow six year old Prince Peter, after seeing his picture in a royal magazine; an infatuation that doesn't easily fade away no matter how many years go by. While others may grow out of their crushes, Jerramy's infatuation with Peter, and all things Royal for that matter, does not fade easily.

From her at times mortifying childhood in Colorado with her hippie parents and younger brother in a rodeo-loving farm town, to her first trip to London, Ms. Fine relates her story in a very readable, likeable manner. When she gets the chance to actually live in London for a while, could a chance encounter with the Prince possibly be far behind?

One of my favorite moments of the book is when young Jerramy sends a letter to Prince Peter and actually gets a reply back from Buckingham Palace.

A witty and charming story, SOMEDAY MY PRINCE WILL COME is an enjoyable memoir that reads a lot like a great fiction novel.

SOMEDAY MY PRINCE WILL COME is a memorable read, one that will leave you closing the book with a smile on your face and the thought that anything is possible if you want it enough.
