Description: What? A princess??

Me??? Yeah, right.

Mia Thermopolis is pretty sure there's nothing worse than being a five-foot-nine, flat-chested freshman, who also happens to be flunking Algebra.

Is she ever in for a surprise.

First Mom announces that she's dating Mia's Algebra teacher. Then Dad has to go and reveal that he is the crown prince of Genovia. And guess who still doesn't have a date for the Cultural Diversity Dance? (via Goodreads)

Thoughts:  It was a pretty easy and quick read for me.  The characters are well-developed and there were some interesting subplots that kept me entertained.

Bottom line: For those that have seen the movie, you may find the book more interesting and the characters more developed.  Highly recommended for teen readers.

Rating:  3.25/5
