    I went into American Royals hoping it would be better than the author s first book, The Thousandth Floor, but honestly it might have been worse Probably the only thing it has going for it over that one is the one non straight main character doesn t die at the end of the book, but it s only because there isn t one Don t worry though Katherine McGee still loves to make marginalized people have great falls one of the few people of color in this book is a Japanese girl who is in a coma There w I went into American Royals hoping it would be better than the author s first book, The Thousandth Floor, but honestly it might have been worse Probably the only thing it has going for it over that one is the one non straight main character doesn t die at the end of the book, but it s only because there isn t one Don t worry though Katherine McGee still loves to make marginalized peo...
