Bestselling author Meg Cabot had a number of jobs before turning to writing young-adult and adult novels full-time, the longest-lasting one as assistant manager of an enormous New York University freshman dorm. Best known for her young adult series The Princess Diaries, two books of which have been made into films, Cabot is also the author of a supernatural series (the Mediator) and numerous chick-lit adult titles.
"Mia is an engaging if sometimes not very memorable heroine, and the conversational tone of the diary entries makes this a fun, lighthearted read."
From the Publisher
In this fifth entry in the popular Princess Diaries series, Mia is finally starting to feel comfortable with her life. Thrilled about the impending birth of a new sibling, Mia is also distracted by dreams of dancing with her beloved Michael at the prom. Michael, however, is very anti-prom and swears he will never attend the event. Further complications arise when Lilly and Grandmère take opposite sides in a service workers' strike.
In a series of humorous diary entries, high school freshman (and Genovian Princess) Mia tries to get her reluctant boyfriend to take her to the prom.
