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?
The Princess Diaries is the first book in the beloved, bestselling series that inspired the feature film starring Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews.
I absolutely adore this book. The humour is exactly my style, short and sarcastic, and the characters are real (like you believe they are in your living room and are having an agruement.) The movie, as a child I loved, and I watched it several hundred times in a row, but what you might not know is that this book is slightly different. The movie only focuses on the first half of the book, and is more “child-friendly”. This book is more mature in language but has more immature characters.
Overall, I recommend this book to anyone who wants to walk through memory lane this summer.
