A New York Times Bestseller
Izumi Tanaka has never felt like she fit in - it isn't easy being Japanese American in her mostly white northern California town. It's always been Izzy and her mom against the world. But then Izumi discovers her father is the Crown Prince of Japan. Which means Izzy is literally a princess. In a whirlwind, Izumi travels to Japan to meet the father she never knew. But being a princess isn't all ball gowns and tiaras. There are conniving cousins, a hungry press, a scowling but handsome bodyguard, and thousands of years of tradition and customs to learn. Izumi finds herself caught between worlds. Will Izumi crumble under the weight of the crown, or will she live out her fairy tale, happily ever after?
