The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot
I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars.
Caution: Possible spoiler alert!
What would you do if you found out your parents have been lying to you for your whole life? This is what happened to Mia Thermopolis. Then, she finds out her full name is Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo. She’s not just an average New York teen. She is the heir to the throne of Genovia.
She finds this out when her father is worked up because he can’t have any more children. Mia doesn’t understand why this is such a big deal. Her father Phillipe, flies to New York to explain. He stays at the Plaza with Grandmere, Mia’s grandmother on her father’s side.
In the middle of the Plaza, Mia finds out that she, Phillipe’s illegitimate daughter, is the heir to the throne of Genovia. She is now a princess. Mia is less than thrilled to hear this news. She already is an extremely tall freshman who is failing Algebra.
On top of all of that, Mia soon finds out that her mom, Helen Thermopolis, is dating her algebra teacher! How much more embarrassing could her life get? Mia learns that she must take princess lessons every day after her daily Algebra review sessions. What will Mia do to continue high school as a normal teenager? Is that even possible now?
This book is a very captivating book. I love Meg Cabot’s style of writing. I recommend this book to anyone who likes Young Adult books with romance and fantasy. Mia is a very stubborn character, with a lot of personality. It will take a lot to turn an average New Yorker into Genovian royalty. This book is the first in a series of books.
This book is available in Kindle, paperback, and hardcover format. If you do not have a Kindle, you can read it on another electronic device. This is also a perfect excuse to buy a Kindle. I love reading on my Kindle, especially at night!
