The Princess Diaries10-12 years
'You're not Mia Thermopolis any more, honey,' Dad said. 'You're Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo. Princess of Genovia.'
A PRINCESS?? ME??? Yeah. Right.
One minute Mia's a totally normal Manhattan fourteen-year-old. Next minute she's heir to the throne of Genovia, being trailed by a bodyguard, taking princess lessons with her uncontrollable old grandmere, and having a makeover with someone called Paolo. Well, her dad can lecture her till he's royal blue in the face, but no way is Mia going to turn herself into a style-queen. And they think she's moving to Genovia? Er, hello?
Meg Cabot's The Princess Diaries inspired the feature film starring Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews. This beloved series continues in the second book, A Royal Disaster.
Hilarious... reading her journal is like reading a note from your best friend... an off-the-wall sense of humour that will have readers laughing out loud.
