Never before has the world seen such a princess.
Nor have her own subjects, for that matter. Mia’s royal introduction to Genovia has mixed results: while her fashion sense is widely applauded, her position on the installation of public parking meters is met with resistance.
But the politics of bureaucracy are nothing next to Mia’s real troubles. Between canceled dates with her long—sought—after royal consort, a second semester of the dreaded Algebra, more princess lessons from Grandmère as a result of the Genovian parking—meter thing, and the inability to stop gnawing on her fingernails, isn’t there anything Mia is good at besides inheriting an unwanted royal title?
I love this series so much, and I cannot wait to continue on.
As usual, Mia is young and naive. As mentioned in my previous reviews, she is a fourteen-year-old girl and this is to be expected. Yes, she is a bit whiny; but isn’t that kind of the point? She’s young and in high school. Not only that but if you consider the format in which the books are written; it makes quite a bit of sense. These books are told through her journal, it makes sense for her to whine about things in a book that only she reads. I remember doing my fair share of whining in my journals in junior high and high school (the rare occasions in which I actually wrote in one).
Also, who doesn’t love Michael Moscovitz?
Overall, I would definitely recommend continuing with the series. I think I’m going to wait to read on until I can get physical copies of these books; because I love the series so much and I need to own it.
