well pullng princes i enjoyed but it wasnt really amazing. calypso was kinda the average character and most of the characters were definetly predictable! sad to say but i knew wat was coming before i read it and thats not how i liked to read at all. but at the end of the day i would read the next book in the series just to see if the predictions will change.

I loved the way that Pulling Princes describes the action gils take against one another. In some ways it almost reads has a bizzare textbook about crulty, in other ways any of these girls could easily be your best friend.

Haveing never attended boarding school myself, I find the very well defined world in which it is set to be intreging. The way in which the characters grow in subsiquent books is also equally vivid and well structured.

I've read some of Tyne O'Connell's Red Dress Ink (adult chick lit) books and they were enjoyable. I thought I'd give this book a try thinking it might be as good or maybe even better.
I thought wrong. I didn't enjoy this boko as much as the many other teen books I've read in the past. This was fun, but boring also.

My suggestion... pass it up and read a book by another author, such as Sarah Mlynowski's 'Bras & Broomsticks' or any of Meg Cabot's teen reads.

i have to confess i read this one because the cover looked like i could finish it under two hours.i wasn't expecting much but pulling princes turned to be good!it was written in light-heated manner and i bet anyone could relate to calypso's difficulties to fit in a whole new world than she's ever known. but i didn't really like the prince part, though. it's too far fetched, don't you think?but still, that got me hooked. who doesn't have a fantasy prince of their own, right?

In Pulling Princes, Calypso Kelly is the American freak at the prestigious St. Augustine's Boarding School for Ladies in England. Everything from her accent to her her lack of pedigree is mocked, but she's determined that this year will be different, and she'll finally fit in with the popular girls. She starts by pretending that her mother's hot (but gay) PA is her boyfriend, and, to her surprise, it actually works. It gains her respect, and, in the long run, she gains friends. But one girl, Honey O' Hare, is still determined to bring Calypso down, so when she's caught in the tabloids kissing Prince Freddie, England's most eligible bachelor, a lot more than her dress is hanging by a safety pin. Calypso must do all she can to save her reputation. Anyone who has ever felt like a misfit or had someone out to undermine them will surely relate to Calypso. These books are funny, fast-paced, and bound to have you waiting eagerly for the next installment.

I really enjoyed this book and it made me want to go to an all-girls boarding school in London. The main character is Calypso. She's American from LA, with wierd LA parents who wanted her to grow up the English way (the right way). She has always been an outcast with her only friend Star, daughter of a rock star. All the other girls at school are beautiful, rich,and snobby. And always make fun of Calypso and her accent. She's tired of the teasing and jsut wants to fit in. The only way os to pull a fit boy (a very handsome boyfriend). So she makes one up and starts to become friends with her former bullies/enemies: Georgina, Honey, and the rest of the gang. Georgina really is very kind. But Honey is just the worst! Things really get bad when the guy Honey wants, the prince, really wants Calypso. It's payback. This story is hilarious and very fun. It's really cool to read about London and boarding school and all the ideas these girls come up with as friends, as well as with the school nuns. You won't put down this witty bookuntil you've finished!
