But in her heart of hearts, Mia has one wish: an evening spent with Michael in a tux and a corsage on her wrist; in other words, the PROM. Michael, however, does not seem to share the dream that is the prom. Worse still, a service workers strike (with Grandmere and Lilly at the heart of it and on opposite sides) threatens the very existence of this year's prom.
Will the strike end in time? Can Michael be dissuaded from his anti-prom views? Most importantly, will Mia get to wear her pink prom dress?
Also, as a precursor to Princess in Pink, this audiobook includes Project Princess: The Princess Diaries, Volume 4 and 1/2.
Hammer in hand, Princess Mia embarks on an epic adventure for one so admittedly unhandy: along with her cohorts from school, she's off to build houses for the less fortunate. It doesn't take Mia long to realize that helping others (while an unimpeachably noble pastime) is very hard work. Will her giving spirit prevail? Will the house collapse due to royally clumsy construction? And most importantly, will Michael stop working long enough to kiss her?
Listen to the whole Princess Diaries series.

I love all the books in these series. Mia just can't help herself with the crazy girl logic.
I would LOVE to have Anne Hathaway keep narrating these books. Clea Lewis just made Mia so incredibly whiny and stupid.
I would but the narrator is just horrible. I only kept listening cause I love the Princess Diaries Series.
Meg Cabot's lastest installment of the diary of Mia Thermopolis is read beautifully by Clea Lewis. Her voice is filled with all of the enthusiasm and drama of a teenager speaking in the first person. Her character voices are fabulous, and never distract the flow, which bubbles along merrily.
The fifth installment deals with "getting to second base", so parents, be forewarned. Ms. Cabot is both hip and open with her characters, depicting teen life honestly (and inevitably, in this case), but younger girls might not be ready for this introduction.
Expect hilarious situations, more disasters than you can shake a stick at, the question of Prom Night, relationship chaos, and several new additions to the Thermopolis house.
I found that while I love the books, the way that the book is read makes the story seem more juvenile then ever. I know that it is a story of a teenage girl but the whining present makes it almost annoying. The voice of Michael also makes it seem as if he is completely apathetic and flat. When reading the books myself I find that I put a completely different inflection on almost everything.
