Our foreign exchange student is a prince.
A real-life prince. Like of a country. And he’s not one of those ugly ones with big teeth that girls only like because he’s royal. No, he’s hot. On fire. I’m drooling just thinking about him.
But that’s the problem, because the only reason my parents took him in is because they don’t think there’s any way a guy like him could crush on a girl like me.
I’m going to prove them wrong. I don’t know how. But I’m going to figure out a way to make Leopold Williams fall for me before I cross the graduation stage.

Not my favorite Curvy Girls book, but there was still lots to love. Princes and proms are always at the top of my read list.
It was great to get to know Faith in this book. She was always the quiet one in the other Curvy Girls books so it was nice to get some perspective into her life. Like the other girls in this series, Faith has some unique circumstances that she’s forced to face and overcome. I loved seeing her come out of her shell and develop into a more powerful character.
Leo on the other hand was not so enjoyable. He was a super bland character and probably my least favorite thing about this book. He just seemed to be a supporting character to Faith. There to hold her hand and whisper sweet nothings into her ear when she needed it. I could tell there was some effort made in trying to make him into a more dynamic character, but it just didn’t translate for me.
I also wasn’t in love with the wishy-washy family issues for both Faith and Leo. I think things were worked out the best way possible, but the family members and their relations didn’t feel very natural.
As I mentioned, this wasn’t my favorite Curvy Girls book, but there was still lots to enjoy. Can’t wait for the next Curvy Girls book!

The premise sounds so cute, but sorry it didn’t live up to expectations. We love when the guy is extra swoonworthy.
