    4.5 out of 5 stars 162

Her Serene Highness Pommelina Alix Louise Canella of Monaco has lived her life as the "ugly duckling" of her glamorous family. But graduate school has kept her too busy to pine for a relationship, and being ignored by the media allows her to devote time to humanitarian projects without interference. Prima donna Formula One racer Thalia d'Angelis knows she's been hired as a publicity stunt, but that only fuels her desire to be the first woman on an F1 podium.

With a relentless TV lawyer and public mob still out for Lillian Linden-Smith's blood for crimes committed by her "American royalty" parents, getting out of the country is her only hope for anonymity. If that means cleaning up and presenting an antisocial know-it-all Ph.D. for bookstores, clubs and lectures, fine. Dr. Hathaway may have succeeded in driving away all the others, but not this time. From their first meeting the sparks fly, and each is thinking: She has no idea who she's dealing with.

First time I saw her was in the mirror on my locker door. I'd kicked my swim gear onto the bottom shelf and was reaching to the top for my calc book when she opened her locker across the hall. She had a streaked blonde ponytail dangling out the back of her baseball cap.... We slammed our lockers in unison and turned. Her eyes met mine. "Hi," she said, smiling. My stomach fluttered. "Hi," I answered automatically. She was new. Had to be. I would've noticed her. She sauntered away, but not before I caught a glimpse of her T-shirt. It said: IMRU? Am I what?

If you could sum up Keeping You a Secret in three words, what would they be?

Coming Out Sucks!

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Make it longer. Get into the main characters more.

Have you listened to any of Rebekah Levin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

It gets better!

Any additional comments?

Coming out is scary and when your Mother throws you out, It's scary, your alone and now hurt! It happens all the time! Good for the author for bring it out!
