Publisher's Summary

Things are looking up for Mia: she's the newest staffer on the school paper, and her miraculous completion of freshman Algebra is just around the corner. Plus she's about to get a new baby brother or sister. Could things possibly get any better?

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.

Mia, silly Mia.

Where does Princess in Pink rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I love all the books in these series. Mia just can't help herself with the crazy girl logic.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Clea Lewis?

I would LOVE to have Anne Hathaway keep narrating these books. Clea Lewis just made Mia so incredibly whiny and stupid.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I would but the narrator is just horrible. I only kept listening cause I love the Princess Diaries Series.

Princess Of My Heart

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.

oh meg

How could the performance have been better?

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.

mia is just like taking a time portal back to being a teenager and all the drama that comes with it its fun to watch her grow into her role and become "self actualized "

Easy, Fun Read

This is the third time i have listened to this book and it just never gets old! your always in suspense or in fits of laughter and the crazy situations Mia gets herself into! i think the awesome thing about meg cabot is how she tells storys in a way in which puts you in the characters shoes creating every day sinareos which you have no choice but to relate too! would recommend this to anyone after a funny, comical book with a hint of romance especially if you want a light read.
