  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 2/1/2014

    " This was not what I expected. Mia totally cracked me up! She's so dramatic, and passionate, and a complete spaz, yet underneath a very considerate person with a big heart. "

    " i really liked it but the movie sucked me and my mom liked the 2nd movie better surprisingly anyway the book was really good the first one i mean. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer Oaks | 12/19/2013

    " This books is one for an older audience. It would be great to use in a classroom to discuss what friendship means. The movie goes very well with the book. It shows that anyone can do anything if they put their mind to it, no matter what their social status is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mrsinserra | 12/5/2012

    " This was a nice light hearted book- it is a bit childish for me- but it was quick and I didn't have to think at all while reading it. I will read the rest of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie Kennedy | 12/2/2012

    " I love Meg Cabot so I knew I would like this book a lot. I thought the story was kind of slow, but then again in my old age it is hard for me to get caught up in a teenage love story like I used to. Great read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily Pinnick | 9/8/2012

    " This is a good book, but for a more mature audience. It is a good book to use when teaching children how to journal. It would be better for girls to read, I think that guys would not enjoy it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brychaunna Warfield | 8/4/2012

    " What I thought about the book was it was irritating. I thought it was irritating because the girl was actin spoiled she wasn't grateful about nothing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alexa | 7/1/2012

    " I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK!!! Quite the page turner, and it is perfect for teenage girls(: if you need a little book to relate too, I recommend this book! Loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 3/26/2012

    " Comparing this book with the movie. Of course the book had some better qualities. I will be reading the other books in the series and see what Princess Mia is up to next. The grandmother character in the movie is better than the character in the book. Of course, it is Julie Andrews. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 11/26/2011

    " It was a cute, enjoyable, and fluffy, quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca Smith | 11/23/2011

    " In spite of the fact that the format seems rather improbable as a real life occurence, it is an engaging and funny read (assuming you find teenaged girl freak out freak-out funny). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Henry | 9/7/2011

    " Funny. Funnier than the film. It reminds me of the Georgia Nicolson books, only more American and royal-y. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tara Eglington | 7/20/2011

    " A true teen classic. One of the reasons I wanted to become a writer. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Furball | 5/14/2011

    " Really liked Project Princess, but I personally felt that Princess in Pink was a bit overwhelming; compared to Mia's other diary entries, I felt like she was a bit too cynical and annoying in Princess in Pink since she complained a lot more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sally | 3/17/2010

    " Cabot's voice is so strong, I wonder just how old she is. Her words are definitely teenage girl's. This is a fun story.

    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 April | 1/21/2010

    " An addicting series you just cannot put down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melody | 10/30/2009

    " This has been my least favorite so far. Mia's very whiney and for at least half of the book she really annoyed me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 4/22/2009

    " A; I really enjoy the narrator and all the extra tales the movies didn't include. Very easy for me to listen to at work.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 4/16/2009

    " I wanted something familiar...and no matter how long you wait between books, they really are like going back to an old friend to catch up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tatiana | 8/12/2008

    " This book was a great book because it was about a typical teenage girl that now has become a princess. In this book she has encountered new events in her life, such as completing Algebra and being on the committee of the school paper. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 3/31/2008

    " Every time I think this series is boring and played out, it sucks me back in and has me grinning like an idiot. Enjoy Mia's spring break, and fretting over the prom. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hannah Banana | 2/14/2008

    " I love this book! FOR GIRLS ONLY ! If you are a boy and willing to read this book you will... be crazy for the rest of your life! "
