The Lovereading4Kids comment
The first in the hugely successful Meg Cabot series featuring Mia, a very normal 14 year old Manhatten school girl, who is suddenly pitched into being Princess Mia of the priniciplity of Genovia with everything at her finger tips - except perhaps the love of her life. Her diaries over a five year period have been enjoyed by millions of children worldwide and now with the culmination of the series, we felt it was time to bring them all together to ensure that a new generation doesn’t miss out on them. There are 10 titles culminating in the final Princess Diaries, Ten out of Ten, which features Princess Mia, aged 18 and they have been reissued with new covers to celebrate 15 years since first publication.
Kids love to read and so in addition to our Lovereading expert opinion one of our Lovereading4kids Reader Review Panel members was also lucky enough to read and review this title.
- Louise Allen - 'The Princess Diaries is a fun read. Meg Cabot takes you on a journey through the life of Mia, a regular girl just trying to keep her head down to get through the pressures of being a teenager at school! Mia however is thrown a major curve ball when she finds out that she is actually the Princess of Genovia! Being a princess is clearly not all that it is cracked up to be and Mia doesn't exactly embrace her new role. With a pushy Grandmother, arguing parents, annoying class members and a fall out with her best friend, Mai has a lot to deal with. This book will have you cringing and chuckling in equal measure and is perfect for wannabe princesses from about 11 years of age. A good light hearted book. Thumbs up!'

'You're not Mia Thermopolis any more, honey,' Dad said. 'You're Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo. Princess of Genovia.' A PRINCESS?? ME??? Yeah. Right.
One minute Mia's a totally normal Manhattan fourteen-year-old. Next minute she's heir to the throne of Genovia, being trailed by a bodyguard, taking princess lessons with her uncontrollable old grandmere, and having a makeover with someone called Paolo. Well, her dad can lecture her till he's royal blue in the face, but no way is Mia going to turn herself into a style-queen. And they think she's moving to Genovia? Er, hello?
'Hilarious... reading her journal is like reading a note from your best friend... an off-the-wall sense of humour that will have readers laughing out loud.' -- Booklist Booklist
