The Princess Diaries

The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot
Young Adult

Mia is a normal 14 year old worried about her appearance, her friends and her algebra mark until she finds out she is next in line in the Principality of Genovia.

Now she must go through princess lessons and make-overs with her grandmere. She now has a bodyguard and gets driven to school in a limo. Is her date for the high school dance for real?

This is a cute book and reminds me of Georgia Nicholson. Mia, however is much more sensible and not nearly as flighty.

This plot remind me of a film with Julie Andrews (also known as Mary Poppins...). The story is the same, there is also Genovia!
A kind of new Cinderella... not that interesting, but fine when there is nothing better on the TV!

That movie is based off to the book! :)

Awww, "Princess Diaries" was one of my daughter's favorite books, she even wrote up a review and sent it to Sprockets for some competition that they had. She didn't win, but she had fun talking about this book!
