In this book we follow Mia, just a normal teenager trying her best to be normal. One day her dad drops by and just casually announces that she is a princess (as you do), from then Mia’s life is turned upside down as she tries to accept that she has to run a country even though she is as far from a princess as you can get.
I loved this book! It is such a fun and fast paced read. The story is told through Mia’s journal entries and it is just so funny to read from her point of view and see how she is coping with everything. Instead of most novels where the character is popular and instantly accepts they are a princess and do everything right, here we see Mia who has no intention of wanting to be a princess and she tries to come to terms with dealing with the press or learning how to act.
I flew through this book as like I said before it is a really fun read, it is definitely for teenagers however I’m sure young adults would enjoy this as well (I know I did!). The only downside for me which I don’t really know if it is a downside is that her grandmother in the film (Julie Andrews) is amazing and really funny. However in the book she just seemed a bit stuck up and I really didn’t like her, she didn’t act at all like a grandmother and I know she is a queen but at the same time she is still a grandmother and it seemed like that aspect didn’t come across. Therefore this did kind of ruin this book for me because I expected her to change into the loving and cool grandmother in the films but it just didn’t happen. I am hoping that she does change in the later books.
Overall I did really enjoy this book, it is a quick and fun read that is perfect for teenagers! I would definitely recommend this.
This my childhood (OK my early teens) book and it was brilliant! It showed you didn’t have to be the best at everything to get on with life, and sometimes things are not always quite what they seem.
Most people would love the idea of being a princess, of being royal – a Disney fairytale come true. But not Mia, this is a step too far for her. She is already considered a freak at school and this goes one step too far – how much more can she take? But somehow her royal news gets leaked and now Mia has to deal with being ‘popular’ and her tyrannical grandmother – forget the film version Mia’s grandmother is not as loveable as you might think!
Mia has to mature as the year progresses – can she learn all about what it means to be a princess, cope with the make-overs and soften her Grandmere. All while remaining herself and bagging the boy?
Written as a journal, this is a funny, witty read with shows Mia as the typically over-active, hyper teen she is. Worrying about the whales, wanting to join Greenpeace and wondering what her classmates will think of her.
For those of you who didn’t read originally, where were you?! And for you lot yet to have a chance, go read! This is pure joy to read and you won’t find out what you have missed till you have read and regretted past opportunities!
