Things get out of hand, fast!
Since Mia's the brand-new crown princess of Genovia, indomitable dowager princess Grandmere arranges a national primetime interview for her. With just a few innocent remarks, Mia manages to enrage her best friend Lilly, practically get one of her teachers fired, and alienate the entire country of Genovia. (Population 50,000, but still!)
There's the havoc of the interview's aftermath and her dreaded princess lessons at the Plaza. Plus an unexpected announcement from her mother, and intriguing, exasperating letters from a secret admirer. Mia is swept up in a whirlwind of royal intrigue the likes of which hasn't been seen since the first of The Princess Diaries.
What's an heir to the royal throne to do?
Listen to the whole Princess Diaries series.

"With thoughtful presentations and credible accents, Hathaway develops characters varying from pompous European royals to Mia's country grandparents. It's a hilarious journey fit for the whole family." (AudioFile)
"Listeners who loved the first volume will be equally pleased with this one." (Booklist)
My neice's love these books as do I. Meg Cabot is very good at understanding teen angst and issues. The on-going Princess story is a great and original one.
10 out of 10. I love all the accents of Anne Hathaway and I really loved it. My mom loved listening to it with me!
It was about a Princess... what else!
All of them
Just after finishing the first book of this series I was certainly ready to get to the next one. Like usual the movies are never exactly like the books, but these have the same appeal. I love Anne Hathaway as the narrator, mostly because I love her, but also because she quite literally was Mia Thermopolis. It's like you get to here her tell you all the juicy details in her diary, and that's great while driving alone. It has really kept me alert, almost like someone is taking to me the entire time.
The only downside is I thought this book was a little on the short side. However, this will not be stoping me from continuing the series. I get a wonderful sense of nostalgia every time I get to read a bit of these books (I recall in my preteens picking these up at book fairs but never really retained any of the information).
Still a good read if this style of book is your thing.
