The Young Adult Hint

​We are thrilled to share our June Young Adult hint, A Royal Retelling!

​A surprising and romantic YA retelling-mashup of A Little Princess and The Secret Garden by TWO bestselling authors, this beautiful novel is the perfect way to start the summer!

Three best friends have each other, and they are the only reason boarding school isn’t completely insufferable.

Tragically, one's father passes away after he’s stripped of his fortune, leaving her orphaned and with just one possession: a ticket to a ship that will bring her to the home of her last living relative, in America. But her friend can’t bear to say goodbye, and reveals that he’s the son of an earl with endless riches . . . and a huge estate that the three of them can run away to, leaving the boarding school–and thoughts of America–behind.

It turns out that the estate is more than just a getaway–it’s a secret garden of budding romance.

Filled with charm, romance, and swoon, and inspired by some of classic literature’s most beloved characters, this story is the perfect blend of A Little Princess and The Secret Garden— and the perfect companion to Jo & Laurie.

The perfect novel to revive your favorite childhood memories, this story embodies the love between friends in the most beautiful of ways. A stunning title that will leave you feeling as though you were just wrapped in the most comforting of hugs, we are truly honored to bring this stunning novel to life!

On sale now through June 14th (or until we sell out), this is the perfect box to kick start your summer reading!
