What happens when Alex Claremont-Diaz, the multiracial son of the first female president of the United States falls in love with Prince Henry of England? Casey McQuiston’s funny, sexy debut novel, Red White and Royal Blue (Griffin/St Martin’s) takes us into that territory and the results--well, let’s just say that we wish for a scenario that’s this much fun.
“The much-loved royal romance genre gets a fun and refreshing update in McQuiston's debut... The love affair between Alex and Henry is intense and romantic, made all the more so by the inclusion of their poetic emails that manage to be both funny and steamy. A clever, romantic, sexy love story.” -Kirkus.
Casey McQuiston’s novel has been a hit with our booksellers and our greater community, and she joins us today from her home in Colorado, thanks to a little help from OutRight Action International, an NGO advocating for human rights for LGBTIQ persons everywhere.
