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.
Praise
"[A]s hilarious and enjoyable as its predecessors....Cabot's fresh, fast-paced voice catches the new reader up with the important details so that having missed the first three episodes doesn't get in the way of enjoying this one."
"Fine beach fodder, unburdened by weight or depth, this is as successful a frothy frivolity as the first title."

Annotation 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.
