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. *Author: Cabot, Meg *Series Title: Princess Diaries *Publication Date: 2000/08/01 *Number of Pages: 238 *Binding Type: Hardbound *Grade Level: 7-9 *Language: English *Depth: 1.00 *Width: 5.75 *Height: 8.50
From the Publisher:
She's just a New York City girl living with her artist mom...

News Flash: Dad is prince of Genovia. (So that's why a limo meets her at the airport!)

Downer: Dad can't have any more kids. (So no heir to the throne.)

Shock of the Century: Like it or not, Mia Thermopolis is prime princess material.

Mia must take princess lessons from her dreaded grandmére, the dowager princess of Genovia, who thinks Mia has a thing or two to learn before she steps up to the throne.

Well, her father can lecture her until he's royal-blue in the face about her princessly duty--no way is she moving to Genovia and leaving Manhattan behind. But what's a girl to do when her name is Princess Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo?

2001 Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Readers (ALA), Books for the Teen Age 2001 (NYPL) and 2001 Best Books for Young Adults (ALA)

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.
Author Bio
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.


Kirkus Reviews
"[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." 03/15/2003

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Fine beach fodder, unburdened by weight or depth, this is as successful a frothy frivolity as the first title." - Deborah Stevenson September 2001
