Review: Trailer Park Princess (Switching Tracks Series) by Delia Steele

Trailer Park Princes
Delia Steele


Rory used to count down the days until she could leave, but now with a younger brother in tow, it would be hard. She could never leave him. Rory is trapped in the Trailer Park like a princess in her tower, with her mother playing the big bad, drunken, fire-breathing dragon. The dream of her knight coming to save her faded away about the same time her goals changed. Feeling useless, and angry Rory starts her new school and gets trampled by none other than the Monroe Falls Golden Boy, Tobias West. She finds herself seeing him as the knight she dreamed of; though, she believes it to be just that, a dream. Tobias (Toby) is Mr. Popular/ Mr. Perfect/ Mr. Money-in-the-bank. He is too high on the social ladder to step down to her level. Or is he? Toby is smitten with Rory. Toby’s ex, Ashley, refuses to lose out to trailer park trash, and Rory finds herself the fuel to Ashley’s new found hate. On top of Monroe Falls High School drama, Rory still has to deal with her drunken mother and needy brother. She doesn’t have time for childish games. Reality hits Rory hard when her mother brings home a ticking time bomb for a bed mate and the need for that shiny knight becomes real. Rome appears like she conjured him out of thin air with magical powers, and instantly becomes her best friend. He seems to always be around when she needs someone to talk to and seems to always know just how to fix it. (Did I mention he is drop dead beautiful?) Two knights in shining armor? Nope!! That doesn’t happen. Not in fairy tales, and definitely not in real life. Rory finds herself realizing there is a thin line between relationships and friendships, lines that are starting to blur. With Toby getting ready to leave for college, Ashley’s nonstop meanness, and Rome showing up, can Rory handle the pressure? Her old friend reality takes another whack at her, causing her dread and despair to take over. Rory is questioning herself, and it's wreaking havoc on the strong girl she’s always considered herself to be. Have her poor choices doomed her to life in the trailer park, or will she be able to exceed even her own expectations? Will she ever realize she is truly a princess worthy of getting her prince? Or will she simply survive? How does Rory’s story end?


Once i started reading Trailer Park Princess I was hooked! Its not your normal book of pretend, it was a real life situation. This story hit very close to home for me. Rory is a sweet girl who always put family first and had to deal with a lot of struggles.

Toby is the guy she has been dating for about a year. He is rich, popular, and a football player. A complete opposite of Rory. Toby is a spoiled jerk who doesn't stand up to his parents and the things he does seriously just piss me off!!

Now there is Rome! Oh where do I begin...Rome is HOT, caring, a very good friend, did I say HOT already? He puts everyone else's needs before his own! 

This book was very emotional. I loved how the author wrote it. Delia Steele this was a great read and i highly recommend it!

I give this book a rating of 5 out of 5 stars!
