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 Grandmere 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?
I know that I have said this about the other books in this series, but I am finding these books hilarious and very entertaining. The diary format makes them SO easy to read and I have been reading them in about one sitting as a break from my never ending To Read pile of other things.
Princess in Waiting follows Mia to Genovia during the holiday break while she tries on her new princess title where she is the princess, needless to say it all goes a bit awry. Even though I have been enjoying the series, this was the first book were I really felt Mia's age - she was boy crazy and kind of whiny most of the time. The plot was still fun though, Grandmere is still ruining her life, her dad is still pretty oblivious, and Mia continues to spazz over the littlest things.
Another fun book in the series, I am gonna grab the next one soon.
