Description (Taken From

A princess on her own . . .
Mia has been invited to speak at a gala for Domina Rei, an elite society of powerful businesswomen. But what could she possibly have to say? Now that Michael has broken things off, Mia can barely get out of bed, and her parents are making her see a "therapist." School, where Lilly still refuses to speak to her and Lana suddenly wants to be bff, is a total nightmare. Even J.P.'s efforts to cheer Mia up (he's being really sweet ) aren't helping. What's a royal to do? Just when things couldn't get worse, Mia uncovers an old family secret, a long-forgotten diary of a teenage princess of Genovia. It could be just the thing to help Mia write her speech--but it might also change the fate of the Renaldos forever.


Mia Thermopolis is pretty sure there's nothing worse than being a five-foot-nine, flat-chested freshman, who also happens to be flunking Algebra. Is she ever in for a surprise! First Mom announces that she's dating Mia's Algebra teacher, then Dad has to go and reveal that he is the crowned prince of Genovia. And guess who still doesn't have a date for the Cultural Diversity Dance?

My Thoughts On The Book:
If you like to laugh you will love this book!!! You will relate to Mia, who like all of us has trouble fitting in! But, we aren't all a princess of a small country. I love this book because you can relate to Mia. And just like her, I am is terrible at algebra! You get to learn that being a princess is not all glam and gowns, but trying to decide who are your real friends and who are the phonies! Which is somthing that we all have to do on a regular basis in life. This book will make you laugh, cry and relate to what Miss Mia is going through. I hope if you read this book it will become a favorite to you as it has to me and my sister!
