Author Info
Meg Cabot
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.
"Cabot writes with a deft touch for humor as well as the convincing voice of a 14-year-old. Mia emerges as a vibrant girl who may become a good princess no matter how much she dislikes the prospect. True, young readers will deal with little more profound than the burning question of who will ask Mia for a date, but that's what interests the target audience. Teenage girls will love it."
"Fine beach fodder, unburdened by weight or depth, this is as successful a frothy frivolity as the first title."
From the Publisher
Annotation With Michael, her geeky but gorgeous boyfriend, at Columbia, Mia is sure there's absolutely nothing to look forward to in 10th grade. She discovers just how wrong she is when her best friend Lily's nomination forces Mia to run against her arch nemesis, Lana Weinberger, for student council president. Even worse, Genovia might be expelled from the European Union due to the small matter of 10,000 algae-eating snails. However, everything pales in comparison to the fact that Michael might want to DO IT! How on earth is Mia going to deal with all of these problems? This is the sixth installment in the popular PRINCESS DIARIES series.
Excerpt I guess I can see how Mom might have god for Dad, back when she was in college. He was something of a Baldwin.| But a PRINCE? Of a whole COUNTRY? I mean, I knew he was in politics, and of course I knew he had money--how many kids at my school have summer homes in France? Martha's Vineyard, maybe, but not FRANCE.| So what I want to know is, if my dad's an actual prince, how come I have to learn algebra?| I mean, seriously.
Editors Note Just when Mia thinks life will be back to normal, her indomitable grandmáere schedules a national television interview for Mia, her best friend Lilly styles herself Svangali to an Indiana newcomer, and her mother starts dating her algebra teacher.
