Soar Into Mid-Summer With A Blazing Book

Rainbow Reads discusses August’s book, Her Royal Highness by Rachel Hawkins, Tuesday, Aug. 9

Rainbow Reads is delighted to present August’s regal book of the month: Her Royal Highness by Rachel Hawkins (she also wrote the heart-warming and adorable Prince Charming). 

Her Royal Highness is about Millie Quint, an American girl who gets accepted into an elite boarding school in the breathtaking hills of Scotland. There, she is assigned her roommate Flora, a literal princess of Scotland! As their initially strained relationship blossoms into something more, Millie must confront her self-doubts about whether or not she and Flora can have a “happily ever after.”
