About the Book: Here’s Where She Meets Prince Charming

“…gorgeous, funny, and compelling.” —Mary Ann Marlowe, Some Kind of Magic

On paper, seventeen-year-old Natalie Tremayne has it all. She’s got stellar grades, a passion for theater, and more than enough talent in the swimming pool to make her plans for four parent-free years at the college of her dreams realistic. The only place she’s missing anything is socially: the tall and buoyant body that benefits her in the pool has only ever intimidated the boys at her school.

When the enigmatic new kid Campbell Adams gets the lead role in the school’s production of Beauty and the Beast, Natalie begins to wonder if her drought is about to come to an end. Their connection is instant: Campbell is a mystery that Natalie is determined to crack.

But when the secret he’s made himself invisible to hide has nothing to do with the Dread Pirate Roberts or sparkling in the sunshine, Natalie finds herself swimming in a whole new pool of reality. With her high school days coming to an end and college on the horizon, Natalie will have to learn that the best way to make the universe laugh is to make a plan, and that the lemonade you make yourself out of life’s lemons is the best drink in the world.

~Guest Post by Kristin Wright~

 

I was fat in high school. Back then, being fat put me in a fairly predictable box. I wasn’t on the homecoming court. I was an active participant in theater with a good singing voice, but I never got any parts that didn’t involve playing an old lady with sprayed silver hair. I never got asked to prom. Graduation meant I was able to walk away from all those teenage anxieties and start over as whoever I wanted to be.

One of the best parts of being a writer is getting to rewrite history. My sons spent a lot of time on swim teams. Once, at one of their swim meets, I saw a girl whose confidence just surrounded her. Like me in high school, she was tall and carried more weight than the other girls, but unlike me, she wore that racing swim suit with the same unconcern with which I wear my pajamas in my bed. I was fascinated by that kind of strength at that age. I watched her as she dove in and killed it, beating the other swimmers in her heat by half a length. She was beautiful, and the “Belle” of the swim meet.

I wrote Here’s Where She Meets Prince Charming about that girl, or who I imagined she might be. I thought a girl like that would be involved in everything. She’d also do theater. She’d be an academic superstar and curious about everything. She’d be on a rocket ship to a prestigious college. She’d have good parents who understood that love means letting go. Nothing would derail such a girl.

Nothing except maybe romance.

In my book, that girl, Natalie, meets a boy and has to decide whether she has time to slow her rocket ship for a little detour. Campbell is a mystery. He’s a transfer student who keeps to himself and makes himself invisible. When he’s cast as the lead in the school musical Beauty & the Beast (Natalie, of course, gets Mrs. Potts, the old lady with the silver-sprayed hair), she can’t stop herself from trying to find out what he’s hiding behind his castle walls. What she finds makes her question the narrow path to the future her feet have always trod and lights up all the alternate paths for life after high school.

The last semester of high school is a mind-expanding time. College or jobs or the future yawns wide in front of you as you arrive dazed and blinking toward the end of the tunnel of childhood. You realize that that who you are, where you live, who your “family” is, and even what you enjoy are all open for change. I love writing about that time when all the doors are still open, and all the decisions are still revocable.

Here’s Where She Meets Prince Charming is my YA debut AND my romance debut (first but not last—watch for two more in 2025 and 2026!). I have three published thrillers for adults already out there, but something about the possibilities combined with the real anguish and serious difficulties of the transition from child to adult keeps drawing me back to writing for teens.

It has been a thrill to work with Owl Hollow Press on this book (and the next two) and I’m so excited for you all to meet Natalie and Campbell!
