Hey everyone, it’s Sarah!
I received this as an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Zora started a successful nonprofit, Walk Me Home, and this summer she is taking special college courses to help her learn how to continue its success. She travels from her beloved home in Appleton, NJ every morning, to her prestigious university in NYC. Zora is having trouble finding her groove, because all of her classmates are over-the-top privileged teens. The first connection she makes is with Owen, the most privileged of the bunch, who is a prince. The two accidentally swap phones and quickly find themselves falling for each other. While being tied to a famous celeb is not in Zora’s plans, Owen is level-headed in a way that she can’t help but be drawn to. Will the two make it through the media storm and parent meet ups, to keep their relationship alive?
I loved the fact that Zora had a successful nonprofit. I found this layer of the story to be the most interesting and well-developed. I think that Owen and the romance between the two main characters was not as developed. In fact, I don’t feel like I know the prince at all. I think this book could have done with 100 more pages to further flesh out the relationship, but it did follow the traditional girl falling for prince storyline. This novel is appropriate for tweens because nothing too risky happens and the reading level and voice are approachable for younger readers.
