The eighth title in this fantastic Princess Diaries series.

If you’re looking for books to get a reticent reader into the reading experience then the Princess Diaries series is a great way to do that. This is number eight but there is no need to have read the other seven to enjoy this one, which by the way is every bit as good as the earlier ones. The writing style is straightforward and the characters are a joy to meet.

Other titles in the fabulous Princess Diaries series include Seventh Heaven and the final installment Ten Out of Ten.

Synopsis

The Princess Diaries: After Eight by Meg Cabot

It's the start of a new school term - and trouble's already brewing for one disaster-prone princess. On top of Mrs Martinez daring to suggest that Mia's 'not ready' for Advanced Creative Writing, Grandmere is being booted out of the Plaza during renovations. Can any other hotel in the world live up to Grandmere's standards?

Meg Cabot married financial writer and poet Benjamin D. Egnatz on April 1, 1993.

Her novel Every Boy's Got One is loosely based on her own elopement.

In May 2006, the Harvard Crimson released reports that 19-year-old author Kaavya Viswanathan borrowed passages from Cabot's Princess Diaries series, and other books, to place in her novel How Opal Mehta Got Kissed, Got Wild, and Got a Life. Viswanathan's novels were subsequently pulled from the shelves.

Cabot has also written many books for teens, including The Princess Diaries series, which has won many awards, and her recently completed series, The Mediator.
