The Princess Diaries
by Meg Cabot [YA Cabot]
This book is very different from the movie. I like it a lot better. It is very funny and is the first book in a great series. This book features Mia Thermopolis, a nerdy highschool girl who wants to fit in. She has a genius bestfriend,Lily Moscovits who doesnt care what people think. In this book Mia figures out a secret that will change her life when her grandmother come to her apartment in New York. Mia's grandmother tells her she is the queen of Genovia, her father is a prince, and she is next in line for the throne. In a flash her life changes. The popular crowd now adores her, her friends treat her differently, and she struggles to figure out her identity. She befriends a shy, rich girl named Tina and figures out she is just as normal and nice as her friend Lily. Mia doesnt want to be a princess though and has a hard time adjusting. If you love teen books that are funny and full of drama this series will be a great one for you to read. -- review submitted by Lilly G. - customer of the Gere Branch Library
