Publisher's Summary

Just when Mia thought she had the whole Princess thing under control...

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.

Meg Cabot Reminds you what it means to be young.

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.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I did not enjoy this book that much because it had so many inappropriate concepts, i would reccomend this book for 12 and up

A bit on the short side

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.

Cute enough

A little more mature than the first, so I'd recommend for girls 8th grade and up.
