McGehee, Laura

The Royal Birthday

(3) YA American Royalty series. What if George Washington chose to rule as king instead of president? This alternate-reality series follows his modern-day descendants as they desperately cling to relevancy and try to avoid World War XXX. McGehee uses humor and satire to subtly comment on today's celeb-obsessed society and its social-media addiction. With its entertaining, timely premise and simple prose, this hi-lo series is well suited to reluctant teen readers. Review covers these American Royalty titles: The Royal Birthday, The Royal Dream, The Royal Expectation, The Royal Queen's Reign, The Royal Summit, and The Royal Weddings.
