Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
As she awaits her high school graduation, Mia is almost bursting with expectation. Fresh from acing her senior project and receiving acceptances from her top-choice colleges, this winning princess is primed for the future. Unfortunately, the present keeps jutting in, pestering her with worries about ex-heartthrobs and her father's very personal political crisis. A dandy addiction to the ever-expanding Princess Diaries realm.
Twist
If girrrrl heroines are what you want, the hilarious Princess Diaries has a winner in sassy Mia.
Buffalo News
A hilarious read.

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
"This is how NOT a princess I am. I am so NOT a princess that when my dad started telling me I was one, I totally started crying." Raised in a Greenwich Village loft in New York City by her flaky-but-loving artist mother, ninth grader Mia Thermopolis is shocked to learn from her father that she is now the heir apparent to Genovia, the tiny European kingdom he rules. Her paternal grandmother further disrupts Mia's life when she comes to town to mold the girl into a proper royal. Cabot's debut children's novel is essentially a classic makeover tale souped up on imperial steroids: a better haircut and an improved wardrobe garner Mia the attention of a hitherto unattainable boy. (Of course this boy isn't all he appears to be, and another boy--the true friend Mia mostly takes for granted--turns out to be Mr. Right.) A running gag involving sexual harassment (including a foot fetishist obsessed with Mia's best friend Lilly Moscovitz and a sidewalk groper dubbed the "Blind Guy") is more creepy than funny, and the portrayal of the self-conscious pseudo-zaniness of downtown life is over the top (Lilly's parents, both psychoanalysts, get Rolfed, practice t'ai chi and attend benefits for "the homosexual children of survivors of the Holocaust"). Though Mia's loopy narration has its charms and princess stories can be irresistible, a slapstick cartoonishness prevails here. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
Publishers Weekly

The Princess Diaries wraps up in a series finale certain to please the legions of Princess Mia fans. Cabot shows off her singular ability to retread her story lines while leaving audiences breathless to get to the last page: Mia will be certain that this time she's sunk, for real, and oblivious to what is writ large to everyone around her. Here she copes with the pressures of prom (J.P. hasn't asked her), graduation and college acceptances (she's lied through her teeth about them), not to mention her 18th birthday and a party orchestrated by the imposing Grandmère. And why doesn't anyone want to publish her pseudonymous romance novel, Ransom My Heart? (Brief excerpts are tossed in, and absolute devotees can polish off the entire work; see Fiction Reviews, p. 32.) When former boyfriend Michael returns from Japan with his revolutionary medical technology a complete success, Mia is where readers love her: insecure and self-deprecating. By now, however, she understands that being royal means "always being the bigger person, and being kind to others"-and she can act accordingly. A character like this deserves the happy ending Cabot virtually guarantees. Ages 12-up. (Jan.)

Children's Literature - Katie DeWald
In the tenth volume of the "Princess Diaries" series, Princess Mia is burdened with the typical rites of passage facing high school seniors: prom, choosing a college, boys, trigonometry, and the everyday drama of her circle of friends. She also has to deal with the added pressure of being Princess of Genovia, keeping tabs on her father's campaign for prime minister of Genovia, and her ex-boyfriend's return to New York as the inventor of a robotic arm that has revolutionized the field of cardiac surgery. Then there is the matter of sex: who is having it, who is not, and when is it right for Mia? Mia has to strike a balance between her relationship with her boyfriend J.P. and her denial of her renewed interest in her ex-boyfriend Michael. With help from her family and true friends, Princess Mia untangles the disorder of her life in amazing fashion, while managing to emerge as a true heroine in every seemingly impossible circumstance of her life. Cabot narrates the story from the perspective of Princess Mia writing in her journal, with dated entries separating the segments of the book. In parts of the book, simple dialogue is replaced by texting sequences; detailing the sending of text messages by Mia and her friends. Fans of Cabot's books and newcomers to the Princess Mia tales will enjoy the hip, current style in which the book is written as well as the juicy storyline. Reviewer: Katie DeWald
VOYA - Amy S. Pattee
Mia Thermopolis, Princess of Genovia and heroine of Cabot's Princess Diaries series, has turned into a "Big Fat Liar." Even though she got into every college to which she applied, Mia told everyone she was admitted to none of them. She devoted a year to writing a romance novel as her senior project and not the history of Genovia olive-oil pressing that she told everyone she was writing, and - this charade is the most difficult to maintain - Mia does not feel the same spark with her new boyfriend, J. P., that she felt with her ex-boyfriend, Michael. Of course, Mia has sympathetic, although wayward, reasons for each of these falsehoods, and she describes and obsesses over these in detail in the diary format fans of the series have come to love. Although the last novel in Cabot's series is, in part, an advertisement for Mia's senior project romance, Ransom My Heart (Avon, 2009), the book's greater concern is with Mia's attempt to actualize her father's advice about what it means to be a princess: "You know what it's really all about is always being the bigger person, and being kind to others." Although this guidance seems clichEd, Mia's struggle to be "the bigger person" and "kind" to herself is at the heart of the novel. Cabot devotees will sigh with contentment at the satisfying conclusion of the novel and the series. Reviewer: Amy S. Pattee
From The Critics
The Princess Diaries is the diary of Mia Thermopolis, who is living a confused and hard to believe life. She is the not most popular girl in school, but is in love with the most popular boy. She lives in New York City with her artist mom, who is divorced and is dating her algebra teacher — a class Mia is failing. One day, her father arrives and upsets her troubled life. He tells her that he has cancer, and then, to her disbelief, that she is the Princess of Genvoia. That's right! As it turns out, her father is not just the European politician he's always led to her believe, but actually the prince of a small country. Before long, the New York paparazzi arrive at her school and front door, eager to take pictures of real live princess. Offbeat Mia will win the hearts of teenage girls dying to fit in without too much fanfare, and Meg Cabot's writing is silly and entertaining enough to capture the fancy of young readers who are looking for a fun story about ordinary people caught in extraordinary circumstances. With tons of pop culture references, this book will make today's teens feel right at home. Genre: Fathers and Daughters/Identity 2000, HarperCollins, 238 pp., $15.95. Ages 12 up. Reviewer: Michelle Rich; Oviedo, Florida
KLIATT
Mia figures that she already has enough problems in life—her mother is dating her algebra teacher, while she's flunking his class, and she's nursing an unrequited crush on Josh, the handsomest boy in their school. When her father comes to visit her in Manhattan and explains that he is really a prince and that Mia is heir to the throne of the little European principality of Genovia, it's really the last straw as far as she is concerned. Now Mia has to take princess lessons from her scary Grandmére, while trying to conceal her embarrassing new status from her friends and classmates. Of course, the media find out (Grandmére calls them) and one unexpected result for Mia is that Josh is suddenly interested in her. But when he invites her to the Cultural Diversity Dance at school Mia finds out what he's really like, and who her friends really are. This humorous romantic fantasy has a bit of that ubiquitous Bridget Jones's Diary flavor to it, written as it is in journal form. Mia's complaints and observations are interspersed with various lists, and the overall tone is light and funny, with many up-to-date cultural references and brand names thrown in. Preteen and teenage girls will gobble this up like cotton candy. KLIATT Codes: JS—Recommended for junior and senior high school students. 2000, HarperCollins, 240p, $14.95. Ages 13 to 18. Reviewer: Paula Rohrlick; September 2000 (Vol. 34 No. 5)
VOYA
Mia's dreams are simple: She wants to pass algebra, she wants to grow breasts, and she wants Josh Richter, the gorgeous boy who can see into her soul, somehow to notice her. She does not dream of becoming wealthy and internationally famous or of wearing designer gowns and dining with elegant society. Nevertheless, to her dismay, these things are thrust upon her when she discovers that she is the sole heir to the throne of the tiny country Genovia. Dreading the scorn of her militant filmmaker best friend, Lilly, Mia tries to hide her newfound royalty. When Mia's photograph appears in the newspaper, however, her cover is blown. Suddenly everything changes, as Lilly withdraws to a disdainful, chilly distance, Josh Richter dumps his popular girlfriend to ask Mia out, and the world that once left her alone crushes her privacy with its frenzied fascination. Mia's wonderfully funny and oblivious diary entries chart her progression from an awkward, shy pushover to a princess who speaks her own mind. Sprinkled throughout Mia's diary are her revealing lists, poems, and attempts at algebra. Her narrative emotes as only a teenage girl can. Fretting about her father she writes, "He's usually so organized. How could he have let himself become a prince?" This breezy, fun read would be appropriate for girls in the junior high school range. Recommend it for patrons who enjoyed Louise Rennison's Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging (HarperCollins, 2000/VOYA June 2000), another hilarious teen diary.

School Library Journal
Gr 7-9-Insecure Mia Thermopolis, 14, discovers that she is actually Princess Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo of Genovia. In her diary entries, which cover almost a month, she writes about going to a private school in New York City and living in Greenwich Village with her avant-garde artist mother. She fights with her best friend, struggles to pass algebra, and worries that she is the only one without a date for the Cultural Diversity Dance. On top of that, her divorced mother begins dating her teacher; her father visits and reveals that she is his heir; her intimidating grandmother gives her "Princess lessons"; and she has to contend with the embarrassment of having a bodyguard and reporters who follow her everywhere. Readers will relate to Mia's bubbly, chatty voice and enjoy the humor of this unlikely fairy tale. More accessible than, though perhaps not as clever as, Louise Rennison's Angus, Thongs and Full-frontal Snogging (HarperCollins, 2000), this funny, fast-paced book should appeal to hip young women, including reluctant readers.-Debbie Stewart, Grand Rapids Public Library, MI Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
ALA Booklist
She wines; she gloats; she cheers, worries, rants, raves; reading her journal is like reading a note from your best friend.
Kirkus Reviews
The conclusion of the Princess Diaries saga. The tenth and (at) last diary of Mia Thermopolis, crown princess of Genovia and New York City teen, chronicles her anxieties about college, sex, lying and loyalty in the weeks leading up to her graduation from high school. Excerpts from Ransom My Heart, the romance novel Mia secretly wrote for her senior project and is pseudonymously shopping around to publishers, punctuate the journal. Poor "Daphne Delacroix" is plagued by a constant stream of rejection letters-although Avon apparently has no such compunction and will simultaneously publish the work, with proceeds to benefit Greenpeace (9780061700071, $13.95). Meanwhile, boyfriend J.P. is exasperatingly remote, her grandmother runs amok while planning her 18th birthday party and exboyfriend Michael unexpectedly returns from Japan. How Mia resolves her various conflicts with boys, friends and family will surprise no one, but the tidy ending will satisfy readers who have stuck with her through nine previous volumes. Cabot's skillful use of text messaging, slang and humor strike a breezy tone that makes this a quick, easy read. (Fiction. 12 & up)

Meet the Author

Meg Cabot is the author of many books (not all under her real name), including The Princess Diaries an ALA Best Book for Young Adults and an ALA Quick Pick for Reluctant Readers. She is still waiting for her real parents, the king and queen, to restore her to her rightful throne. She currently resides in New York City with her husband and a one-eyed cat named Henrietta.

Biography

Meg Cabot knows that one of the best cures for feeling gawky and conspicuous is reading about someone who sticks out even more than you do. Her books for young adults invariably feature girls who have extraordinary powers that carry extraordinary burdens. Cabot's Princess Diaries series offers up the secret thoughts of Mia Thermopolis, who discovers at age 14 that she is actually the princess of a small European country. This revelation adds significantly to her extant concerns about crushes, friendships, school, and other matters falling under adolescent scrutiny.

Cabot, a native of Indiana weaned on Judy Blume and Barbara Cartland, was already a successful romance novelist (as Patricia Cabot) before she began writing for young adults; her alter-alter ego, Jenny Carroll, began a new series shortly after The Princess Diaries debuted. The Carroll books are divided between the Mediator series, starring a girl who can communicate with restless ghosts; and the 1-800-WHERE-R-YOU books, in which a girl struck by lightning acquires the ability to locate missing people.

Cabot writes her books in a conspiratorial, first-person style that resonates with her readers. She has obviously kept a grip on the vernacular and the key issues of adolescence; but what makes her books so irresistible is the mixing of the mundane with the fantastic. After all, who wouldn't like to wake up and be a princess all of a sudden, or a seer? Cabot takes such offhand notions and roots them firmly in the details of average, middle-class American life. She has also tiptoed into mystery and paranormal suspense with other YA novels and series installments.

Cabot continues to write adult novels under various permutations of her given name (Meggin Patricia Cabot): from 19th-century historical romances to contemporary chick lit. And, as with her books for teens, these romances have earned praise for their lighthearted humor and well drawn characters.

Good To Know

Some interesting outtakes from our interview with Cabot:

"I am left handed."

"I hate tomatoes of any kind."

"I really wanted to be veterinarian, but I got a 410 on my math SATs."

"Writing used to be my hobby, but now that it's my job, I have no hobby -- except watching TV and laying around the pool reading US Weekly. I have tried many hobbies, such as knitting, Pilates, ballet, yoga, and guitar, but none of them have taken. So I guess I'm stuck with no hobby.

Read an Excerpt

Chapter One

Tuesday, September 23

Sometimes it seems like all I ever do is lie.

My mom thinks I'm repressing my feelings about this. I say to her, “No, Mom, I'm not. I think it's really neat. As long as you're happy, I'm happy.”

Mom says, “I don't think you're being honest with me.”

Then she hands me this book. She tells me she wants me to write down my feelings in this book, since, she says, I obviously don't feel I can talk about them with her.

She wants me to write down my feelings? Okay, I'll write down my feelings:

I CAN'T BELIEVE SHE'S DOING THIS TO ME!

Like everybody doesn't already think I'm a freak. I'm practically the biggest freak in the entire school. I mean, let's face it: I'm five foot nine, flat-chested, and a freshman. How much more of a freak could I be?

If people at school find out about this, I'm dead. That's it. Dead.Oh, God, if you really do exist, please don't let them find out about this.

There are four million people in Manhattan, right? That makes about two million of them guys. So out of TWO MILLION guys, she has to go out with Mr. Gianini. She can't go out with some guy I don't know. She can't go out with some guy she met at D'Agostinos or wherever. Oh, no.

She has to go out with my Algebra teacher.

Thanks, Mom. Thanks a whole lot.

Wednesday, September 24, Fifth Period

Lilly's like, “Mr. Gianini's cool.”

Yeah, right. He's cool if you're Lilly Moscovitz. He's cool if you're good at Algebra, like Lilly Moscovitz. He's not so cool if you're flunking Algebra, like me.

He's not so cool if he makes you stay after school EVERY SINGLESOLITARY DAY from 2:30 to 3:30 to practice the FOIL method when you could be hanging out with all your friends. He's not so cool if he calls your mother in for a parent/teacher conference to talk about how you're flunking Algebra, then ASKS HER OUT.

And he's not so cool if he's sticking his tongue in your mom's mouth.

Not that I've actually seen them do this. They haven't even been on their first date yet. And I don't think my mom would let a guy put his tongue in her mouth on the first date.

At least, I hope not.

I saw Josh Richter stick his tongue in Lana Weinberger's mouth last week. I had this totally close-up view of it, since they were leaning up against Josh's locker, which is right next to mine. It kind of grossed me out.

Though I can't say I'd mind if Josh Richter kissed me like that. The other day Lilly and I were at Bigelows picking up some alpha hydroxy for Lilly's mom, and I noticed Josh waiting at the checkout counter. He saw me and he actually sort of smiled and said, “Hey.”

He was buying Drakkar Noir, a men's cologne. I got a free sample of it from the salesgirl. Now I can smell Josh whenever I want to, in the privacy of my own home.

Lilly says Josh's synapses were probably misfiring that day, due to heatstroke or something. She said he probably thought I looked familiar but couldn't place my face without the cement block walls of Albert Einstein High behind me. Why else, she asked, would the most popular senior in high school say hey to me, Mia Thermopolis, a lowly freshman?

But I know it wasn't heatstroke. The truth is, when he's away from Lana and all his jock friends, Josh is a totally different person. The kind of person who doesn't care if a girl is flat-chested or wears size-ten shoes. The kind of person who can see beyond all that into the depths of a girl's soul. I know because when I looked into his eyes that day at Bigelows, I saw the deeply sensitive person inside him, struggling to get out.

Lilly says I have an overactive imagination and a pathological need to invent drama in my life. She says the fact that I'm so upset about my mom and Mr. G is a classic example.

“If you're that upset about it, just tell your mom,” Lilly says.

“Tell her you don't want her going out with him. I don't understand you, Mia. You're always going around, lying about how you feel. Why don't you just assert yourself for a change? Your feelings have worth, you know.”

Oh, right. Like I'm going to bum my mom out like that. She's so totally happy about this date, it's enough to make me want to throw up. She goes around cooking all the time. I'm not even kidding. She made pasta for the first time last night in like months. I had already opened the Suzie's Chinese take-out menu, and she says, “Oh, no cold sesame noodles tonight, honey. I made pasta.”

Pasta! My mom made pasta!

She even observed my rights as a vegetarian and didn't put any meatballs in the sauce.

I don't understand any of this.

Things to do

1. Buy cat litter
2. Finish FOIL worksheet for Mr. G
3. Stop telling Lilly everything
4. Go to Pearl Paint: get soft lead pencils, spray mount, canvas stretchers (for Mom)
5. World Civ report on Iceland (5 pages, double space)
6. Stop thinking so much about Josh Richter
7. Drop off laundry
8. October rent (make sure Mom has deposited Dad's check!!!)
9. Be more assertive
10. Measure chest

Thursday, September 25

In Algebra today all I could think about was how Mr. Gianini might put his tongue in my mom's mouth tomorrow night during their date. I just sat there, staring at him. He asked me a really easy question--I swear, he saves all the easy ones for me, like he doesn't want me to feel left out or something--and I totally didn't even hear it. I was like, “What?”

    Reviewed by Sarah Bean the Green Bean Teen Queen for TeensReadToo.com

    Princess Mia is back in the final installment in the PRINCESS DIARIES series. Mia is ending her senior year and life couldn't be more stressful! Where will Mia go to college? Is her boyfriend, J.P., the one? Will Michael ever return from Japan? And will Mia survive turning eighteen? What's a princess to do? <BR/><BR/>I have enjoyed the PRINCESS DIARIES series ever since I read the first book and always enjoy escaping into Mia's world. I think what I love most about the series is that Mia's voice is always fresh and funny and makes me giggle with girly happiness. Even though Mia is a princess, she's still a teenager and a geek at heart (which this fellow geek at heart loves). Author Meg Cabot is the queen of teen chick lit and she always captures the perfect voice of teens in her novels. Mia is relatable to teens, but also to older readers looking back on their own teen years. <BR/><BR/>Coming in at 400 pages, FOREVER PRINCESS is the longest of the PRINCESS DIARIES books and fans are in for a treat. FOREVER PRINCESS is wonderfully funny and charming. Mia has come a long way from her freshman year, and readers who have been following the series will see that Mia, as well as the rest of her friends, have grown up along the way. <BR/><BR/>But just because Mia and the gang are seniors doesn't mean their crazy adventures are far from over, and Mia again finds herself in over her head. Meg Cabot delivers a winner that I'm sure fans old and new will fall in love with. <BR/><BR/>I have to admit that as much as I enjoyed this book, I was sad when I finished and I really hope that Meg Cabot will write about Mia's adventures after high school in the future. I'll always be happy to read more about Princess Mia.

    Completely and Totally, well, Awesome!

    I loved this whole series, and am very sad it's over. But this was a GREAT way to end it. Everything was just so perfect, but not to the point where it seemed unrealistic. It was just great! I loved everything she did with Michael, especially that one seen in the carriage! I even grew to love Lana. <BR/>All the characters are fabulous and it was great being able to see Mia mature through the series. Kudos to Meg and wishes for more and more great books from her to come!

    The Best End of Series

    After being disappointed by Breaking Dawn (Twilight, the first book, is my favorite) I was hoping Meg Cabot could deliver something a whole lot better. And let me tell you, she did! This was SUCH an awesome end of the series. I miss this series so much now that its over but so happy on how it ended. I have to say, I am way more in love with Michael Moscovitz than I ever was with Edward Cullen. Can I have Michael? Please?<BR/>I loved the ending, I loved everything. I hated JP and I loved Lilly. Lana didn't even bug me as much as she usually does and neither did Grandmere. <BR/><BR/>INCREDIBLE. You will fall in love with Mia and Michael all over again<3

    great read

    all o these books are fantastic and great for 10 or 11 and up depending on how mature. Don't read book six and up if you don't know about sex yet.

    Iloved it just wish she had let us know how it ended,I wanted to know if she and mike married. What happens to the other characters. In short I want more!!!!!!!!!!

    A wonderful read persons under 16 should talk to parents about sexual aspects,pros and cons of premarital relations. But other wise teaches some good lessons about friendship, relations, fame and want of, etc. enjoy!
    Would also recommend all the others in this series. Yea Meg Cabot.

    This book will make you want to pee your pants!!!!!!!!!!!! This book is an amazing experience for teenage girls. This helped me find who I wanted to be and who I could be if I really wanted to.

    I was amazed to read this book because the others had made me laugh so hard I wanted to pee my pants. When I learned that the tenth one was coming out, I flipped a lid to know I had to wait months. The day it came out I made it a point to go to the store and buy it. This book is an amazing thing for any teenage girl to read because it brings out a perspective, that all teens are having a hard time in middle school and high school. This also showed me that yes it seems like the world may be coming to an end in some areas, but if you are careful and wise about your decisions, then you should be just fine in the end. This book showed me that things happen for a reason, and without that, you don't really go anywhere. With princess mia, she always seems to have things go wrong, but she is striving for great things, if she sets her mind to it. She can do anything she wants, and pretty much save the world if she has to. This book is good for girls that may be more unique than your average uniqueness, such as myself I was amazed to see that when she thought of something that she should do, this would be the same decision that I would make too. She of course had issues with boys and what girl doesn't, but this gave me a long time perspective that was amazing to look at. Meg Cabot brings the meaning to what it is like to be a teenage girl and she also makes it clear that she is very tuned into that the world feels like it is ending at the age of 18, but you will see that everything turns out for the best and nothing gets left to wonder, if you just follow your passions and your heart. The beautiful writing draws you in, the story keeps you reading, and the reality of the writing is what keeps you coming back for more when it comes to Meg Cabot. I reccommend this book to mothers and daughters, who are reading together, or in a book club of women who enjoy a good laugh because this book will make you laugh so hard you want to pee your pants. It brings tears to your eyes and makes you feel better about your life and yourself. This is a book you need to read after you break up with a boyfriend, I did and it made me be able to take time for myself and then move on a lot faster. This is truly a life changing series and the book is amazing! READ IT A.S.A.P.
