"Amanda!" He burst out laughing. "An American accent! How did you manage that? Listen, everybody! Listen to what Amanda's learned how to do!" He beckoned with his arm, and several boys and girls came over.
"Go on--say something," Cousin George said encouragingly. "I think it's smashing, wait'll you hear."
Emily looked at the expectant, smiling faces. "What do you want me to say?"
This was greeted with laughter and applause.
"More!" Cousin George cried, clapping his hands.
"You guys are nice, you all look terrific, this is an awesome party. How's that? I've been practicing." She wondered how long she could keep this up.

Her Royal Highness The Duchess of York Sarah Furgesen is a great book writer.How many royals besides the duchess sarah and the prince of wales charles wrote books?And the british princess in this book Her Royal Highness The Princess of England amanda has the same name as me. Is it Fate?
I first checked this book out from our school library for my 9-year old daughter. She absolutely loved it - couldn't wait to read more each night. Decided I must purchase our own, since she loves to read her favorites again and again!
A light, fun, but not very remarkable read. American tourist Emily is bored and grouchy on a kids' tour of England while her parents work. At a palace, Emily is mistaken for Princess Amanda, a guest at birthday party there (and who is just as bored as Emily). Meanwhile Amanda is mistaken as Emily. The girls inadvertently switch places and enjoy the day as each other. They become fast friends when they finally meet.
