Princess for president!
Student body president, that is -- nominated by her power-mad best friend, Lilly. This is not how Mia imagined kicking off her sophomore year, but as usual, she has bigger problems to worry about, like Geometry. And now that Mia's one true love, Michael, is uptown at college, what's the point of even getting up for school in the morning? But the last straw is what Lana whispers to her on the lunch line about what college boys expect of their girlfriends. . . . Really, it's almost more than a princess in training can bear!
I feel like finally in this book something clicks for Mia about being a Princess and leader for that matter. In this installment Mia is faced with a lot of important things - she very well may have screwed up in Genovia over the summer, her boyfriend might want to get more serious than she is ready for, and her best friend has nominated her to run for student council president. So just another dramatic year for Mia.
This book was another crazy ramble of Mia's thoughts and feelings but she also started to learn that she really needs tom communication with people if she is ever going to learn anything and actually take on her role as a princess. Granted it takes the whole book for her to realize this but she is getting there.
I loved her growth in this book, she is really coming into herself and standing up for what she wants and doesn't want. She is growing up and it is showing. Now that doesn't mean that she isn't still freaking out like a teenager - there is still a lot of that fun ridiculous Mia humor for those of you who have read other books in the series.
