The Prince and the Pauper gets a modern makeover in this adorable, witty, and heartwarming young adult novel set in the Geekerella universe by national bestselling author Ashley Poston.

Imogen Lovelace is an ordinary fangirl on an impossible mission: save her favorite character, Princess Amara, from being killed off from her favorite franchise, Starfield. The problem is, Jessica Stone—the actress who plays Princess Amara—wants nothing more than to leave the intense scrutiny of the fandom behind. If this year's ExcelsiCon isn't her last, she'll consider her career derailed.

When a case of mistaken identity throws look-a-likes Imogen and Jess together, they quickly become enemies. But when the script for the Starfield sequel leaks, and all signs point to Jess, she and Imogen must trade places to find the person responsible. That's easier said than done when the girls step into each other's shoes and discover new romantic possibilities, as well as the other side of intense fandom. As these "princesses" race to find the script-leaker, they must rescue themselves from their own expectations, and redefine what it means to live happily ever after.


3 Reasons You Should Read…

The Princess and the Fangirl by Ashley Poston


  • We have been waiting for this since the second we turned the last page of Geekerella. And it didn’t disappoint! Glimpses of Elle and Darien? Check. New characters to love? Check. Same great writing that made us smile ear to ear? Check.
  • Jess and Imogen were a breath of fresh air. They were the something perfectly nerdy and different we had been looking for and needing lately.
  • If you’re in the mood for a YA retelling with a spin, one that’s delightfully geeky, filled with relatable characters, and one that is inclusive in more ways than one — look no further. The Princess and the Fangirl deserves to be on your list
