From the Publisher:
Princess Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo may seem the luckiest girl ever.
She's a princess, for starters. She also lives in New York City. And while she's no supermodel, mirrors do not crack at her reflection. Best of all, she finally has a boyfriend.
The truth is, however, that Mia spends all her time doing one of three things: preparing for her nerve-racking entrée into Genovian society under the slave-driving but elegant Grandmére, slogging through congestion unique to Manhattan in December, and avoiding further smooches from her hapless boyfriend, Kenny.
All she wants is a little peace and quiet...and a certain someone else to be her boyfriend. For Mia, being a princess in love is not the fairy tale it's supposed to be...or is it?
This is the third entry in the series of books about Mia Thermopolis, a seemingly ordinary teenager who discovers that she is actually a princess. In this story Mia, who is dating the nice but dull Kenny, suspects that her true love just might be Michael, her best friend Lilly's brother.
"[T]old in perfect teenage vernacular....The third in the series...has the best ending yet, which proves that princesses--even tall, flat-chested, algebraically challenged ones--always find true love." 04/01/2002 Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Cabot still makes the most of her heroine's appealing situation, however, and Mia's comedic overwhelmedness, reminiscent of Rennison's ANGUS, THONGS, AND FULL-FRONTAL SNOGGING, remains funny and readable." - Deborah Stevenson May 2002
