5 out of 5 stars
The story My Hidden Life: Brothers of Camelot Prequel (My Life Series Book 1) by Necie Navone is a coming of age book that includes an air of suspense that sometimes has you wondering what is going to happen next. It is the story of a girl who is the Princess of the Canzano crime Family and who is the one her father has chosen to take over when the time comes. I enjoyed reading about Alessandra. She is a strong, resourceful, and confident young woman. She has learned how to defend herself from a young age and has learned how to do so very well. It is also a bit sad to read about how Alessandra’s life is so controlled. She is a girl that wants to be normal and take part in the activities that other’s her age does, however, she is finding that can never be the life that she leads. Alessandra is also not as naïve as some would believe her to be. She knows about her family and about some of the business that they in. Alessandra’s uncle is a large part of her life. The story is told from her and her uncle’s POV. She is like a daughter to him and he is very protective of her. Another part of Alessandra’s life that is sad is how her father is absent from involvement in it. He is a hard man and I found cruel at times. There are many other characters that are introduced in the story. Many of them are other family members or a few select friends that Alessandra has and interacts with. Others are there to protect her as a member of the Family. This is a story that had me hooked from the very beginning and I didn’t want to put it down until I had finished the last page. It is wonderfully written and enjoyable to read. It is a book I would recommend.
