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?
Okay so honestly this book was just like the first one in regards to the writing style. If I had given it my true attention I would have finished it a lot sooner than I did. This book is geared more towards the middle school age group.
As with the first book, this deviates from the movies so much. But, that doesn’t distract from the book itself. Obviously the books came before the movies. Just like any high schooler Mia faces many different obstacles and even more because she is a princess.
Overall the book was mehh to me, but like I said this is geared towards lower grade levels. I will probably continue reading the rest of the series if I have time, but it won’t be my main focus.
