REVIEW: The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot

The Princess Diaries
by Meg Cabot 

Genre: Young Adult Contemporary
Release Date: July 1, 2001
Publisher: Turtleback Books


She's just a New York City girl living with her artist mom...

News Flash: Dad is prince of Genovia. (So that's why a limo meets her at the airport!)

Downer: Dad can't have any more kids. (So no heir to the throne.)

Shock of the Century: Like it or not, Mia Thermopolis is prime princess material.

Mia must take princess lessons from her dreaded grandmére, the dowager princess of Genovia, who thinks Mia has a thing or two to learn before she steps up to the throne.

Well, her father can lecture her until he's royal-blue in the face about her princessly duty--no way is she moving to Genovia and leaving Manhattan behind. But what's a girl to do when her name is Princess Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo?

I have seen the infamous Disney film based on this book, but until recently, I had no idea it was even a BOOK SERIES!! I love love loooove the film series' so I just HAD to read this when I found it....
I loved reading the differences from the movie in this book, seeing how much different it is, and RE-learning about Mia.... her average fumbly akward teen girl self, finding out she is a princess! I can't wait to read the next one to see how much more is different than the Disney depiction.... :) Definitely a great read for teen girls feeling like.... the odd berry in the bunch!!

I give this book 4 out of 5 shields!!
