From the Publisher:
Fourteen-year-old Mia, who is trying to lead a normal life as a teenage girl in New York City, is shocked to learn that her father is the Prince of Genovia, a small European principality, and that she is a princess and the heir to the throne.
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?
Fourteen-year-old Mia Thermopolis gets the shock of her life when her father tells her that she's not just an ordinary combat-boot wearing teen vegetarian Greenpeace activist, but the princess of Genovia, a tiny country tucked into Europe. Immediately horrified, things only take a turn for the worse when Mia is forced to have princess lessons with her evil Grandmere after school everyday. Can Mia's life possibly get worse? Absolutely: her mother is dating her algebra teacher. This is the first book in the hilarious Princess Diaries series.
"Fine beach fodder, unburdened by weight or depth, this is as successful a frothy frivolity as the first title." - Deborah Stevenson September 2001
