The girl who didn't want to be a princess
Publisher: The Orlando Books
"My name is Aurora but... I am not beautiful. I don't like to sleep a lot. I don't dream of falling in love. I am not loving or tender nor delicate. I don't even sing in the shower. And above all: I do NOT want to be a princess". Argentina awaits Prince Tiziano Brembo dei Gelsomini, who will participate in a Formula 1 race in honour of Juan Manuel Fangio. Aurora is just waiting for the engines to start roaring. But sometimes what we are expecting is nothing like what actually happens. An unexpected meeting in a hotel, her diary (which she calls Madonna) and a video that goes viral ("Royalty is overrated. I find princes boring, useless, puppets, weak, dull… Boring, did I already say it?") unleash an unexpected bet between Tiziano and his father, the king: he must survive undercover, hiding his true identity as a prince, for a week. If he loses, he will have to get married and leave Formula 1. And the prince does not like to lose. He wants his freedom. Tiziano will become an ordinary citizen... and the Madonna Thief. A love story that could be beautiful and perfect… like a fairy tale. But it's not. Because fairies do not exist, because tragedy can arrive disguised as an accident, because the bride can be abandoned an instant before reaching the altar, because an escape can end in death, because it cannot be possible for the story of a girl who did not want to be a princess to have a happy ending.
