The premise of the marvelous mashup is simple. Take elemental bits and pieces of history and modern pop culture and remix them. Author Melissa G. Wilson brings readers her own version of this entertaining art form with her book series History Mashups for Teens. She takes famous figures separated by time and circumstance, mixes up their stories, and explores the unlikely similarities that present themselves as their lives unfold.
In this “lifestyles of the rich and famous” mashup, Wilson dishes on the lives of three extraordinary princesses. Though royalty brought each a lofty position in society, none achieved their “happily ever after” without weathering adversity and overcoming obstacles. Many of the juicy facts revealed about their lives will surprise you.
