Princess in Love by Meg Cabot
This book is about Mia, a freshman in high school and the princess of Genovia, trying to reach self-actualization, get over problems in high school, and prepare for her trip to Genovia. While preparing to go to Genovia, she has to take princess lessons from her pushy grandmother, Dowager Princess of Genovia. As if that isn't hard enough, she has problems in her social and love life. For example, almost everyone in her school thinks she's a freak, she doesn't like her boyfriend, she is in love with her best friend's brother, Michael, and her best friend is a genius. I thought this story was very good. It's different from the movie, but it has it's own special twist to it. One thing that I didn't like was how Mia waited too long to tell Michael her feelings for him. This is because he might have felt the same way, and she's just too shy. The mood of the book was sometimes a bit negative, but it was still good. The thing that grabbed me was that it has problems you can relate to and understand. It's just a great book to read. -Jisun K.
