Rgz Street Team: Vanessa Reviews The Secret Life of Prince Charming by Deb Caletti

The rgz Street Team is a group of teens who bring YA reviews to our blog, led by Postergirl Miss Erin. Find out more.

Today, Vanessa reviews The Secret Life of Prince Charming by Deb Caletti:

Quinn knows a lot about love. She lives with her mom, aunt, and grandma -- all tried and true love gurus who have withstood many storms caused by love gone wrong. Magnetically stuck to their fridge is the comprehensive master list of things to watch out for -- signals that identify a guy who will only bring hurt.

Formally educated and ready to stay away from love for good, Quinn decides to rectify some bad love tales on her own. Beginning a quest to right her father's womanly wrongs against more women than just her mother, Quinn and her sisters set out to find the truth behind the man they all call Dad. What made the supreme bad boy get the girl every time? Each woman has a different story containing more hints for Quinn to watch out for as she learns the worst about her dad while still trying to weed out the best.

A story about not just family, but love, too, The Secret Life of Prince Charming shows that even a girl so down on love can still find a Prince Charming of her own.
