Lauren Graham & Mae Whitman Adapting The Royal We

THIS IS AMAZING NEWS. Lauren Graham and Mae Whitman are adapting a film version of novel The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan, a.k.a. the geniuses behind Go Fug Yourself. I’ve been a fan of theirs for a long time, so I expected to like this book – the story of an American student who falls in love with the future king of England – but where I expected a fun, fluffy romance, I found a rich, complex novel, and I loved it.

I also love the idea of Whitman starring as Bex. Who do we think should be Nick????
