Princesses just want to have fun.

. . . And Mia does too, despite the fact that the student government over which she presides is suddenly broke. But Grandmère's got a wacky scheme to raise the money, catapult Mia to theatrical fame, and link her romantically with an eligible teen bachelor who's not her boyfriend. No wonder Michael seems to think she's a psycho, or worse: not much fun. Is it possible that Mia, soon-to-be star of the stage, president of the student body, and future ruler of Genovia, doesn't know how to party?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
They're back in force! Series favorites kick off with the seventh volume of the Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot, Party Princess. This entry in the bestselling series finds Mia's student government coffers empty, but her determination to have fun nonetheless runneth over. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
VOYA
Princess Mia is back. This time she is determined to convince her boyfriend, Michael, that she is a "party girl" ss la Paris Hilton. And to complicate matters, the student body is out of money and her Grandmother has roped her and her friends into a musical production with Mia as the lead. Of course, being the lead means kissing another boy, which sends over-analytical Mia into another crisis. There is no new ground in this latest installment of The Princess Diaries, and what readers once may have considered a fresh voice has not changed much throughout the course of the series. Mia worries, making mountains out of molehills while staying true to the pop culture teen-speak that Cabot employs so well. The book is not likely to create new Princess Mia fans but it will keep Cabot's series readers happy. VOYA CODES: 2Q 3P J S (Better editing or work by the author might have warranted a 3Q; Will appeal with pushing; Junior High, defined as grades 7 to 9; Senior High, defined as grades 10 to 12). 2006, HarperCollins, 288p., and PLB Ages 12 to 18.

KLIATT - Joanna Solomon
To quote the review of the hardcover in KLIATT, March 2006: We join our princess, heir to the throne of Genovia but currently a 15-year-old high school student in Manhattan, for the seventh installment in the series. Mia is struggling with simultaneously achieving self-actualization, juggling the student government's budget, impressing her boyfriend, and dealing with her haughty grandmother. None of these is a particularly serious crisis, but being the drama queen that she is, Mia agonizes. A new character named J.P. is introduced to the series. He's a self-described "loner," and Mia's friends think he is cute, which inevitably leads to more drama. Party Princess follows the same mold as the last six books: Mia overreacts to minor issues and the whole novel covers the span of about two weeks. It's a fast read, and it sets up the next volume well, because it's clear Cabot has no intention of slowing down. Mia may be a drama queen, but she is still lovable and her hilarious diary entries couldn't be more enjoyable. Reviewer: Joanna Solomon

Princess Mia is back in this seventh installment of the popular PRINCESS DIARIES series, and, as usual, she's facing more problems than she knows what to do with. She's recently been elected student body president, which shouldn't really be that difficult a job since she's been in training to rule her own county someday, but it turns out that the student government is broke.

As if that weren't enough, Lilly starts a new literary magazine, calls it Fat Louie's Pink Butthole, and wants to publish Mia's story about "The Guy Who Hates It When They Put Corn in the Chili," a story that Mia would rather the entire student body not read.

Luckily (or not so luckily, depending on how you look at it), there's Grandmere to the rescue, and she's got a plan to help Mia's financial situation, social situation, and romantic situation all at once (not that Mia was aware she had a romantic "situation" in the first place). Unfortunately, Mia's romantic issues become all too clear when Michael decides to throw a party, and Mia starts freaking out because she's not a "party girl."

Fans of the previous PRINCESS DIARIES books won't want to miss this and will definitely enjoy reading along as Mia shares her crazy high school experiences through her journal. Meg Cabot's writing is light and breezy as always, and perfect for a lazy afternoon.

If you love Meg Cabot you already know that all of her books are really great! Party Princess is no different! The only thing was that I was wishing that Michael and Mia would actually break up. I was really hoping that Mia and J.P would get together. I guess I need to face the fact that Michael and Mia will be together forever.

So, while this story explained a bit of Lilly's behavior, I don't think it excuses it. She's still really abrasive and downright mean to Mia. That aside, I did love the book. The group of friends Mia has gains a new face. I love that Mia becomes braver and more accepting of people the more she matures in her role as princess. The relationship with Michael has a bit of a struggle again, but easily fixed in spite of Mia's overactive imagination. I enjoyed the fact that in her own twisted way, Grandmere was able to help Mia out of her school dilemma, even if it also helped herself out of her own dilemma. I'm excited to see what the next book has in store.
