I only read this because it was so popular, and I wanted to know what other teens like in books. And I can see why some girls would like it. The idea was great: a normal, unpopular girl finds out she’s a princess and finds herself. However, because all the characters are unbelievable, I must confess I did not like it.

*shudder* Pink books. For some reason they've always bothered me. Anyhoo, this is a lot different than the Disney version (trust me, Mia's Grandmère is so not Julie Andrews). Mia is a lot more opinionated and awkward than the movie, too. Good, probably for younger teens.

I always just loved the movie, so I finally decided to read the book. The book was really good in its own way because it was a little different from the movie. Its fun to compare the movie books to the actual film. I loved the book much more then the movie, you decide!

I liked reading this book because I thought it was interesting to see how someone so clueless would have to become a princess in such a limited time. Mia is the princess to be, whether she likes it or not. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a good read.

As well as the hit movie, this book is wonderful. It's about a 15 year old girl named Mia, who believes she's "only good at being invisible." She's clumsy and the last one to make you even think that she's really a princess. After hearing the shocking news, her grandmother, who's a Queen, gives Mia princess lessons and gives her an amazing makeover. Although, would she take the role of becoming princess of Genovia, or will she refuse it completely? Read this book!!

It's a great thriller for girls who love fairytales that are realistic fiction. The way Mia Thermopolis writes in her day-to-day life is a great way to have fun while reading, and I loved it!!!!!!!!! READ IT!!!!

I loved this book, along with the Princess Diaries movie! It's about what every typical girl dreams to be...not a princess. Mia is shocked to hear from her grandmother, who is the Queen of the fictional country of Genovia, that she is a princess, and that she can rule the country of Genovia by blood, since her father was a Prince. Amazing book! A must read!

This was a great book! It was about a neardy, high school girl named Mia, that believed her only expecation in life was to be invisable. After having tea with her Grandmother, she finds out that her father, whom passed away, is really a King, and Mia is really princess of Genovia! Although, does she accept the throne?

This book is about a self-centered 15-year old girl named Mia. Mia is a neardy looking teenager who believes that "My only objective in life is to be invisible, and I'm good at it." After having a cup of tea with her grandmother in the garden, she finds out the truth that's been hidden from her for fifteen years; she is a Princess. "For fifteen years, you couldn't find a spare minute to tell me that my father was a royal?!" Now Mia has to learn to sit, stand, eat, dress, walk, and talk like a princess. Will she make it in time for the Royal Genovian Ball? Read this book to find out!

I love reading the princess diaries books. They are my favorite. I hope they keep making movie and more princess dairies books. The book is about this one girl named 'mia Theormopolis'and how she finds out she is a princess of small nation called Genovia that she had to rule in future. The rest of the story is about what happenes in her life after that. You would NEVER get tired of reading these books..

I thought this book had a great theme. I liked the book personally because I can relate to Mia as being different. I also liked the book because Mia was such a funny character and I liked the fact that she didn't want to be a princess. It made the book hilarious!!!! [Series: The Princess Diaries #1]

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was about a teenager named Mia Thermopolis that just tring to get through 10th grade. Then, after having a "tea party" with her grandmother, Clarisse(who is the queen, but Mia doesn't know that...yet), she tells her that her father, who past away a few years ago, is the King of Genovia, and she is the crowned princess of Genovia! Read this book! [Series: The Princess Diaries #1]

This is such a good book. I just loved this book. It was about how this one girl finds out that her father is prince of Genovia and now she has to be a princess. She had to get lessons from her grandma, which she really hated. Read the book to find out more. [Series: The Princess Diaries #1]

I would actually give this book a three and a half but it rounds up to a four. I didn't like the Princess Diaries the movie, I did think the book was more realistic but I think it is sort of cheesy. A lot of things happen differently in the book, most of them I think are better but overall it wasn't my favorite. [Series: Princess Diaries #1]

This Book described Amelia Thermopoli's life day by day. It explained her life as it changed from a girl to a princess. It's like reading your friends diary; wanting to know all about her life. I think every girl will love the book, of if they prefer, the movie. [Series: Princess Diaries #1]

I thought this book was fantastic! It is filled with a girls most private thoughts and feelings on daily life experiences. Its filled with humor, thoughts of boys, and your little average annoying best friend and I recommend it for teens all around.

I thought this@ was a really good book. Once I picked it up I couldn't put it down! The story is about a teenager name Mia who finds out she is the heir to the throne of a country called Genovia. It is really entertaining. Meg Cabot make Mia seem real like you have known her for all of your life! In my opinion this is one of the best books ever! [Series: Princess Diaries #1]

This book is very different from the movie as you might have seen. But relative to the movie, this book is laugh- out loud funny. Her perspective of all this new princess stuff is very realistic and told very well. I think anybody could read this book and be very pleased with it's contents. [Series: Princess Diaries #1]

I think it really tells about situations teenagers go through and being all of sudden rich. It explains a lot. I think the author put the book in specific detail.

This book is about a girl whose parents a divorced. One day this grandmother whose she has never seen comes to her and says that she is the princess of Genovia. She has to take many princess lessons. This book's moral is to be true to yourself. [Series: Princess Diaries #1]

I LOVED all 4 of these books. They are funny and down to earth. They discuss topics that face today's teens, but there is an interesting twist. I would definetly recommend these books for GIRLS ages 12 to 120!!!! [Series: Princess Diaries #1]
