    Dumping Princes by Tyne O’ Connell is the fourth book in the amazing Calypso chronicles. Just like Pulling Princes, Stealing Princes, and Dueling Princes; Dumping Princes revolves around Calypso and her friends going through yet another adventurous school year. What was suppose to be the best school year since Calypso arrived to St. Augustine’s School for Ladies might actually turn out to be the worst. As if having an upcoming international fencing competition wasn’t already pressure enough, suddenly all of her friends decide to dump their boyfriends and is pressuring Calypso to do the same with Freddie, her boyfriend who she likes very much and also the crown prince of England. But by not dumping Freddie first may have been a big mistake because the very next day Freddie tells Calypso through text, “Soz and all that, but I think we should take a break…” (Pg.102). And now Calypso, her friends, and the entire St. Augustine’s School is supporting her and her plan to get vengeance against Freddie because never has there been a St. Augustine’s girl been dumped before, till now that is. So how will things turn out? Dumping Princes is truly an amazing book and a great add to the Calypso chronicles. There was not a single moment in this book where it would get dull and make me want to skim through the pages. Every single sentence in this entertaining book is worth reading. This is one of the few books that are actually able to make me really laugh out loud. Like when Calypso says “...He could run one of those kissing booths at county fairs when he grew up and positively rake in the cash. Though I don't suppose parents send their sons to the most prestigious boarding school in the world to have them setting up kissing booths.”(Pg.135). Not only this, but its very well written and detailed so you, the reader, can clearly visualize what the characters look like and the setting around them.I’d recommend this book to anyone who needs a good laugh and wants to find out how Calypso will overcome this next situation. And also to Tyne O’ Connell fans of course. So do you think Calypso will be able to get Freddie back? Will she even want to get him back? How will Calypso’s revenge plan turn out? And what happens when Calypso finds out she has an admirer? Don’t wait, find out today by getting your copy of Dumping Princes by Tyne O’ Connell today! But Of course if you haven’t read the other three books to this captivating series, I’d recommend starting from Pulling Princes, the first book.

    This was the 4th book to the Calypso series and truthfully I think the other books in the series were WAY better than this one. I hated the ending! read this book and you'll see why, or just read the title, you can guess pretty easily. Hopefully Tyne O'connel will make a 5th to the series. I was really confused at the end cuz I have NO IDEA what Calypso is gonna do and if things will remain the way they are!

    I laughed my pants off the entire time. I think one of my favorite lines is "...He could run one of those kissing booths at county fairs when he grew up and positively rake in the cash. Though I don't suppose parents send their sons to the most prestigious boarding school in the world to have them setting up kissing booths."I wasn't too impressed with the other's in the series (though I think each one gets better than the last). But this one is simply fabulous. Very funny.One thing I love about this series is that Calypso is really well rounded. She is smart spends most of her time fencing, and though her innermost thoughts center around boys, really she doesn't waste too much time on them. A good message for teenagers.Bad thing, way too much casual drinking and smoking. No wonder GB has a ultra high rate of under 10's being hospitalized for alcohol poisoning (see BBC news this week), as it is being pushed as normal teenage behavior.

    The title of the book should be a dead give away as to what happens, but I was still hoping that Freds and Calypso might end up together after all. I guess the thing I found odd was that such a relationship developed between Calypso and Malcolm, that I almost totally forgot about Freds. I don't know about anyone else, but that was a big surprise to me! Good series though, and it ended on a decent enough note.

    Oh, another hilarious book, not as funny as Dueling Princes, but pretty darn close! Really enjoyed it, and I'm going to be sad to say goodbye to the characters!

    I liked it, but it was my least favourite of the calypso chronicles. I got less attached to the characters and I thought the story was a lot less interesting than the other books in this serie. But the book made me laugh a lot!

    The beginning of the book was okay, it wasn't the best thing out there but it wasn't downright horrible either. My main problem was Calypso and the fact that she has the maturity of a five-year-old.I mean, honestly. At first it was kind of amusing but pretty soon it was just downright annoying and I was just hoping that Calypso would mature just a little bit. Sure, Calypso was acting like some teenage girls do and being all in love with Freddie.The fact that she obsessed over Freddie was one of the annoying things though. I know that there are people out in the world like this but Calypso still annoyed me.And another thing, the title of the book had absolutely nothing to do with the plot of the story. It had barely anything thing to do with the story and the summary was totally misleading. I thought I was in for some scheming and shenanigans but that's not what I got, not really.There was basically around three pages devoted to the whole Counter Dumping part of the book and even that didn't go right.The plan should've gone something like,But instead, the counter dumping went something along the lines of,But anyway, moving on. The good parts of the book were near the end which is sad for me to say but true. Calypso finally got her shit together and actually won some of her fencing bouts and she realized that her dad might've been right when he said that she was a bit too much sometimes.I could definitely relate to what her dad was talking about. Sometimes Calypso was just too much to handle, and not in a good way.I also liked that she realized that Malcolm wasn't the one for her no matter how great he was and that she realized that Fred maybe wasn't the best person out there but that she liked him regardless of it.I'm mostly impressed with Calypso's friends though, besides Honey, they were pretty okay girls. They at least had their heads on right, I can understand why they all dumped their boyfriends, I just never got the impression that the boys were actually doing anything to hinder their learning or lower their grades.And the tres that were all over the book along with words in other languages was kind of annoying as well.

    It started like the other books, very predictable. Still it stays very easy to read and just funny. I really like the fact that she thinks she isn't shallow at all and then she reflects and knows she is shallow. Like the real character of a snobby teenager. Who really wants to fit in more then anything else and are easily persuaded into thinking they are doing the right thing. She feels a lot of peer pressure through all of the books and she lets it cloud her judgement most of the times. In the beginning of this book she really makes a strong impression of what she wants. A shame it didn't put a line through the book. I really want read what happens next because too badly the book ends on a cliffhanger. So I will have to read the next book. I also would like to mention I have borrowed this book by the travelling library in a station of the NMBS in Mol. I would like to give them credit for this nice collection of books they have gathered there and I hope to borrow one again some time soon.

    It is totally my fault for not liking this book. I can't say I didn't like it. It was okay, it was just too young for me. Which sounds a bit funny because I love reading teen and young adult novels. They tend to not be as embarrassingly graphic. However, this book was about a crazy 16 year old. It's weird to side more with the parents than with the heroine of the book. I guess that means I'm officially old. I think what made this too "young" for me was the vocabulary. If I had to hear the word "tre" one more time I was going to fling the book across the room. Unfortunately, this happens to me a lot when I attempt to find a book at the library that I know nothing about. I really have to read up on books, I'm not good at just picking one. Case and point with this book.

    Dernier tome d'une petite série sympathique et légère comme une bulle. Cela démarre sur les chapeaux de roue, avec un weekend en Ecosse, qui ne portera pas ses fruits, puisqu'une rupture sans élégance suivra quelque temps après. Nouvelles cartes à distribuer, entrée en lice d'un nouveau prétendant plus craquant, et d'autres petites aventures complètement loufoques. De bonnes scènes, donc, et un humour anglais servi à tous les étages, avec une galerie de personnages tous plus excentriques et déjantés (les parents, en tête !). Prévoir toutefois une fin très ouverte, mais qui risque d'en chagriner certaines.

    I picked up this series because it was recommended for fans of Louise Rennison's Georgia Nicholson series, which is one of my favorites. In comparison to Rennison's series, this series was a bit of a let-down. As a stand alone series without that comparison, though, I probably would have liked it better. Oh well. The series lagged a bit in each book, and where 9/10 of the series is focused on a prince, the prince doesn't even have a part in its conclusion, which I thought was strange. I'm also confused by the ending of the series itself. Dumping Princes is the last book I can find in the series, but it doesn't quite feel resolved.

    Dumping Princes by Tyne O'Connell is part of one of my favorite book series that I have reread multiple times. The main character, Calypso, is a student at an all girls private school in London. This entire series doesn't really offer any particularly new concepts for many readers, yet the way the author narrates Calypso's struggle to fit in, find love, and stay sane in the midst of family issues, in an extremely interesting way. This is one of those books that are humorous, witty, romantic, realistic, and just overall fantastic. Dumping Princes is one of those books that I just can't put down and can read over and over again.

    I just picked up this book at the library randomly and I HATED it. The plot was lame, and the view point was from a boy crazy teenager.I realize that I read it out of order, but I understood everything that was going on, the author did a good job on briefing what had happened in the past books. The vocabulary level was low, and had a lot of basic French words in it. (like oh la la, jolie and tres belle/chic) I just found this novel pretty boring and shallow.

    Last (so far) in the Princes books from Tyne O'Connell. Hilarious antiques at a an all girls British boarding school where Calypso Kelly gets to date Prince Freddie, heir to the British throne. Full of funny scenes, lots of romantic intrigue, anti-girlfriends, nuns, posh toffs, royals, body guards, and rockstars. Brilliant.

    I like the 3 first books but this one, not so much. The ending was idk looks she's still got to figure things out, like it's not really an end. I think the plot was shallow, I really didn't get the prince's behaviour sometimes. The only thing I found positive about this book was Star's lines. She totally cracked me up, if she wasn't there I'd prolly not read the book til the end.

    There was an element of "reality" in this book when it comes to the Calypso/Freddie relationship that makes this story bittersweet. However, setting the romance stuff aside, it's hard not to enjoy this series. It's extremely witty and amusing.

    Infuriatingly good ending to the series, and though it made me question my sanity with such attachment to the characters, I do have to say O'Connell couldn't have ended such a brilliant series any other way.

    This was the final book in the Calypso Chronicles by Tyne O'Connell. I thought it was a good book, but not the best. At times I found it kind of boring and I felt the need to skip pages. But, it had a good plot after all.

    I loved this book, just like all of them. Just one thing though... the ending!! Who did Calypso actually end up with - Malcolm or Freddie? I'm a Freddie Calypso shipper myself, especially after that cute letter he wrote her!!

    It was a nice way to spend an afternoon. I guess this is the last book of the series and I haven't read the other ones before it. But I thought it was funny. A little over dramatic with the fainting.
