What's a Princess to do?
It's Mia's senior year, and things seem great. She aced her senior project, got accepted to her dream college(s), and has her birthday gala coming up . . . not to mention prom, graduation, and Genovia's first-ever elections.
What's not to love about her life? Well . . .Her senior project? It's a romance novel she secretly wrote, and no one wants to publish it.Prince Phillipe's campaign in the Genovian elections isn't going well, thanks to her totally loathsome cousin Rene, who decided to run against him.Her boyfriend, J.P., is so sweet and seemingly perfect. But is he the one? And her first love, Michael, is back from Japan . . . and back in her life.
With Genovia's and her own future hanging in the balance, Mia's got some decisions to make: Which college? Which guy? How can she choose? Especially when what she decides might determine not just the next four years, but . . . forever!
Ah the end, kind of... I know Meg Cabot has another book in this series but this was the original end of the series and it only kind of felt like it. BUT I LOVED IT.
Mia finally gets it together and does things for herself. She determines what she wants after high school and goes for it and I am so proud of her - is that weird to say about a character? oh well I am.
In this final (kind of) installment, we catch up with Mia in her senior year of high school, so a few years were skipped but in the book the reasoning is good - she hasn't been keeping a journal so thus no Diary entries for us to read. Instead she has been working on her senior project and just handling life. Mia decides that she is going to become a writer no matter what and so her project is a romance novel and under a pen name she sends it out to be published. Then there is her own romance with J.P., he seems like a great choice, well until Michael comes back and pretty much sweeps her off her feet. So she has to make a few life decisions and pick a college too. Even through all of her stress Mia handles everything pretty well and it all falls into place as it should for a princess. This was a wonderful end to Mia's high school diaries and I am very curious how the next book will pick up.
