Book Description

‘You’re not Mia Thermopolis any more, honey,’ Dad said. ‘You’re Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo. Princess of Genovia.’ A PRINCESS?? ME??? Yeah. Right. One minute Mia’s a totally normal Manhattan 14-year-old. Next minute she’s heir to the throne of Genovia, being trailed by a trigger-happy bodyguard, taking princess lessons with her bonkers old grandmere, and having a makeover with someone called Paolo. Well, her dad can lecture her till he’s royal-blue in the face, but no way is Mia going to turn herself into a style-queen. And they think she’s moving to Genovia? Er, hello?

"Hilarious... reading her journal is like reading a note from your best friend... an off-the-wall sense of humour that will have readers laughing out loud." Booklist

4.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant book! 4 July 2001
Format:Paperback
This is a great book! It's about Mia Thermopolis, a normal, American, 14-year-old girl, who's main worry in life is the fact no one's ever asked her out and her mum is dating her algebra teacher. That is, until her dad tells her she's actually the Princess of Genovia! This causes lots of problems - she has to have a bodyguard with her, she loses her best friend, and she has to take "princess lessons" with her grandmother, who she loathes! The book is written in the form of Mia's journal, which also includes lists of things to do and algebra notes. This is a great book and I can't wait to get the sequel!

5.0 out of 5 stars FAB - BUT BE WARNED!!!!! 25 Jun. 2009
By Rains
Format:Paperback
I started reading this series (10 books in total) to my daughter when she was about 6. They are a thoroughly good read and we both enjoyed the first few books. However as the series progresses and Princess Mia gets older, the themes become a little more adult. I found myself by about book 6/7 editing paragraphs whilst reading, and just as my daughter was happy to be reading alone, I found myself insisting that I read to her!! Needless to say I read the final few books to myself (they really are quite gripping!) and they are now sat on the shelf waiting for my daughter to grow a little older. - Maybe early teens.........

The Princess Diaries, written by Meg Cabot,is a humouress novel based on the diaries of Mia Thermopolis.
One minute Mia is a totally normal girl in Manhatten, New York; next she is the heir to the throne of of Genovia and discovers her original name is 'Amelia Migonette Grimaldi thermopolis Renaldo'!
To make things worse her strict Grandmother has arrived in town with princess lessons for Mia on her schedule!
One of the most memorable parts of this book is the night of the Cultural Diversity Dance,but does Mia get a date?

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 17 Sept. 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
... at first I was skeptical. Skeptisism comes natrually when reading a sequel. Rest assured, this is one not to miss. It starts out right where Princess Diaries left off. Mia is just realizing the reality that she is a pricess. What now? Her mother announces that she is pregnant with Mia's Algebra teacher's child. Perfect. Not only does Mia have to deal with that burdon, but also that of a nasty cold. Who wants a cold when about to be interviewd by America's top journalist, Beverly Belerieve? As if life could get any worse, Mia has to deal with the fact that she has a secret admirer who just can't be the person she wants it to be. Unlike most books, Princess Diaries: Take Two matches, if not beats it's perquel. Also, Ms. Cabot truly knows how to capture the spirit of Mia and bring it to life. I am in almost exactly the same situation as this protagonist, minus the princess part.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, unmissable. 3 Sept. 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
When Mia finds out she's a princess she thinks it so unfair. Why does she have to be the girl with no dates, a mum who dates her algebra teacher and now she's a princess! Just when life can't get any worse..... it does. She and her best friend have a huge fight and aren't talking. Can things get any worse?.
This is such a great book any teenage girl should read it- it is so funny!

4.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING!!! 12 Nov. 2003
Format:Paperback
My friend was the one who recommended i read this book and i have to thank her, simply because it appeared to be the most amazing book i've ever read!
It brings out facts of real life. It has some funny parts that may make you laugh and some others that will surely make you want to read more and more.
The main caracter(Mia), who is just a girl from San Fransisco, suddenly finds out that she's a princess.(she freaked out a little, but in the end she accepted it). Moreover, her mother ends up marrying her Algebra teacher and Mia has also a secret admirrer!
So, if you love reading romantic, humorous and kind of adventurous books, i think this is exactly what you are looking for.
I HOPE YOU ENJOY IT AS MUCH AS I DID!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! 27 Feb. 2005
Format:Paperback
I was rather surprised after reading this book my mother had bought me as part of a collection for christmas. I had read the first one and found it exciting but not as smart and funny as the second.
If you have seen the films you might be a bit confussed, Mia's father is still alive and she has been having Princess lessons since she was 7. Beside these facts I was extremely hooked to this book and loved every word that Meg cabot has used. I truly loved this one an couldn't put this book down, I was quite excited to even go to bed and read it!
Thanks for reading my comments and I hope you, like me, try to finish the rest of the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Book 2 July 2014
By Lisa
Format:Paperback
My daughters review of the book:

The Princess Diaries is a book that I know I read as a child, but after rereading it recently, I found that I had actually either never finished the book, didn't understand it whilst I was younger or that I had completely forgotten it. However, now I understand the book fully and I feel very connected towards the main character, Mia.

The Princess Diaries is a very popular series, which was transformed to a Disney adaptation film a few years ago. However, the book and the film are vastly different, and I am proud to say I preferred the book over the film. Mia is a regular girl who is going through the awkward stages of being a teenager. She has no boobs, she is 'ugly' by her own views, she isn't like everyone else, nobody has ever asked her out, she's failing algebra and to top it all off; her best friend, Lilly, and Mia are often subtly arguing over small things that Mia just lets slide. Mia comes from a single parent home, whose father is always in a different country dealing with his own business, but he still pays all of the bills for Mia and his ex. However, Mia soon finds out what she is actually the princess of a small country called Genovia, after her dad tells her the truth and her mum admits she was hiding it, a mist all of this too - her mother starts dating her algebra teacher. EW! Mia has to soon deal with the stages of growing up, as well as accepting princess lessons off of her Grandma. Determined to keep this princess secret a secret, Mia starts falling out with everyone, however eventually the inevitable happens and Mia finds herself stuck with paparazzi, fake dates and even fake friends.

Although I am not a princess, this book is still very relatable.
