Like Meg Cabot, Sarah Strohmeyer has a gift for creating smart, funny girls teen readers love. She's done it again with Zoe, heroine of her latest romcom.
In YA novel How Zoe Made Her Dreams (Mostly) Come True, Zoe learns there is a dark core under the glittering facade of the fairy-tale themed amusement park (cough, Disneyland, cough) where she's a summer intern. For starters, her boss has a blacker heart than Snow White's stepmother, and the other interns are worse backstabbers than Cinderella's step-sisters.
On the upside, she has the chance of romance with a real-life Prince Charming, and a shot at winning a big heap of cash. If she can just live through a summer in the Fairyland Kingdom.
