    Princess Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo may seem like she's the luckiest girl ever. She's a princess, for starters. And while she's no supermodel, mirrors do not crack at her reflection. Best of all, she finally has a boyfriend. However, all she wants is a little peace and quiet...and a certain someone else to be her boyfriend. For Mia, being a princess in love is not the fairy-tale it's supposed to be...or is it?

    Meg Cabot's Princess Diaries series is a sure bet for tween girls who like funny stories and Anne Hathaway brings the audiobooks to life with her expert narration. I was laughing out loud as I was listening to this (and the first two books in the series).

    In a discontent kingdom, civil war is brewing. To unify the divided people, Conner, a nobleman of the court, devises a cunning plan to find an impersonator of the king's long-lost son and install him as a puppet prince. Three orphans are recruited to compete for the role, including a defiant boy named Sage. Sage knows that Conner's motives are more than questionable, yet his life balances on a sword's point he must be chosen to play the prince or he will certainly be killed. But Sage's rivals have their own agendas as well.

    Story

    This is an exciting story that, for me, overcame a so-so narrator. The middle is a bit slow, but the twists and turns at the end more than make up for it. I didn't care for Charlie McWade as the voice of Sage. He tried valiantly to voice the characters, but accents sometimes slipped a bit and I couldn't tell any of the three boys apart. I'll be reading the second book in print.

  • Kabul Beauty School: An American Woman Goes behind the Veil

    Most Westerners working in Afghanistan spend their time tucked inside a military compound or embassy. Not Deborah Rodriguez. Here, she tells the story of the beauty school she founded in the middle of Kabul and of the vibrant women who were her students. When Rodriguez opened the Kabul Beauty School, she not only empowered her students with a new sense of autonomy but also made some of the closest friends of her life.

    Story

    Bernadette Dunne is well-matched to this story of a strong woman doing what she can to help the women of Afghanistan. Dunne reads with a strong, clear, no-nonsense voice, which is just how I imagine Debbie Rodriguez to be from her story. The first person format lends itself nicely to audio and I enjoyed stepping inside Debbie's world behind the veil as she embraced Afghanistan and its women.
