The Princess Diaries
by Meg Cabot
Mia Thermopolis is pretty sure there’s nothing worse than being a five-foot-nine freshman, who also happens to be flunking Algebra. Is she ever in for a surprise. First Mom announces that she’s dating Mia’s Algebra teacher. Then Dad has to go and reveal that he is the crown prince of Genovia, a small European principality, and that she is a princess and the heir to the throne. As if she didn’t feel like enough of a freak already! I read this series over and over through my tween and teen years, so it is very near and dear to my heart! Mia’s shenanigans and misadventures never failed to make me laugh and put a smile on my face.
