Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Princess Mia Thermopolis's Royal New Years' Resolutions:

1. I will stop biting my fingernails.

2. I will be kinder to everyone, even cheerleaders.

3. I will spend every waking moment thinking about Michael Moscovitz.

Mia's back from her first royal trip to Genovia. Now she's ready for what's Really important: her love life.

Mia and Michael are finally an item, but Grandmere seems to have other plans. Just before the happy couple's first hot date, an unmissable royal engagement turns up. Could it be that Michael doesn't measure up to the standards of the house of Renaldo? Does Grandmere have someone else in mind for Princess Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo?

Synopsis:

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?

Synopsis:

Between facing her Genovian public for the first time and scheduling a first date with Royal Consort Michael Moscovitz, Mia is filled with overwhelmingly funny despair in the fourth volume of "The Princess Diaries" series.

About the Author

Meg Cabot is the author of the best-selling, critically acclaimed, immensely popular Princess Diaries novels, as well as All-American Girl, Haunted, and two Regency novels, Nicola and the Viscount and Victoria and the Rogue. Meg was born in Bloomington, Indiana, and her childhood was spent in pursuit of air conditioning, of which there was little at the time in southern Indiana. A primary source proved to be the Monroe County Public Library, where Meg whiled away many hours, reading the complete works of Jane Austen, Judy Blume, and Barbara Cartland.

Armed with a fine arts degree from Indiana University, Meg moved to New York City, intent upon pursuing a career in freelance illustration. Illustrating, however, soon got in the way of Meg's true love, writing, and so she abandoned it and got a job as the assistant manager of an undergraduate dormitory at New York University, writing on the weekends, and whenever her boss wasn't looking.

Meg lives in New York City with her husband, Benjamin, a poet, financial market writer and fellow Hoosier, and their one-eyed cat, Henrietta.
