Reviewed by Rachel McGrath for Readers' Favorite

Lily Amis’s America’s Royal Family is what I would call a humorous adventure parody. Lisy is a lonely girl and all she wants is a family who will love her and make her feel as though she belongs. She suddenly is fed up with feeling this way and on a whim she flies from Switzerland to the United States in search of the elusive America’s Royal Family. Lily Amis writes an enjoyable, engaging and entertaining story that will keep you guessing… ‘Who is America’s Royal family?’ and ‘do they really exist?’ As Lisy travels from New York to Washington and then to Los Angeles, she has some of the biggest celebrities and historical figures completely stumped as she searches for America’s Royal Family.

An enjoyable satire that brings to life some current issues faced by social media and today’s materialism and superficiality. Lily Amis highlights these issues in an adventurous and fun way. While aimed at either children or adults – this book will have different meanings to both - I would actually suggest that this is best suited to the pre-teen and teenager market, given its references to social media and image obsession. These are two primary issues that affect the youth of today and will continue to become more prevalent as technology advances. The illustrations are wonderfully added, making this a very different story, one that you will remember and certainly talk about afterwards. I highly commend this author for her creativity, imagination, and enchanting storytelling in a tale that will be enjoyed by many.
