Children's LiteratureEvery girl looks forward to her sweet sixteenth birthday and plans a party many months before the big day. However, Princess does not fall into the average girl category and wants absolutely no party. Of course, Grandmere will not listen to that foolish notion and takes it upon herself to have the biggest bash imaginable. This is not going to be just some friends getting together with boys, balloons, music, and food. This party is going to be a reality TV special, and one of the prizes is a jet trip to Genovia for Princess and some of her friends. When Princess finds out what her Grandmere is up to, she must try to sabotage the plans without hurting her friends or family. After all, she has to wonder how friendly her friends will be when they find out it was she who ended the fabulous jet ride plan. What a task! Actually, all Princess really wants for her birthday is a romantic evening with Michael. The cover should have a sign that says, "For Girls Only" as this book is definitely meant for teenage girls. It is a short book and can be read in just a couple of hours. The rest of the day can be spent discussing the book with friends. It is light, fun to read, and once again shows Princess as a "regular" person and not just a spoiled young lady. I do recommend this book—it would make a great birthday present. 2006, HarperCollins Publishers, Ages 12 up.
