Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

Rachy Reads rating 4 *

This book was recommended to me by a friend as ‘it’s like a grown up princess diaries’. I loved reading Meg Cabot growing up and this did not fail to live upto it’s expectation. I ended up reading this book as part of a book club and I’m so glad I did. 

The book follows Alex, the half Mexican, Texas raised son of the female President of the USA. Alex forms a relationship with Prince Henry of England and it becomes a scandal in the middle of his mother’s campaign for her second term in the White House. Set in 2020, minus the worldwide pandemic, this book offers hope in a mysognist, homophobic and racist world without this being the focus on the book. It’s a love story at the core and a very beautiful one at that. 

I loved this book, I’m not hugely into politics or the royal family but I thoroughly enjoyed this book including those elements. Please write a sequel Casey!
