I teach middle school. This book was sent by our school system to our school's library. The buyer for our system saw "Princess Mia" and made a logical, albeit vastly incorrect, leap that Cabot's book would be a great addition based on the success and readability of the Princess Diaries. NOTHING could be further from the truth. As an adult, the book is just fine for my eyes. Everything that has been said in previous reviews about characterization and adventure and strong female heroine and romance is absolutely true. BUT THIS IS NOT A BOOK FOR YOUNG ADULTS. Contrary to the marketing that misleads the reader into believing this is a natural extension of the Princess Mia ethos, this book contains graphic sexual detail and innuendo. This book should be in the adult Romance section of any bookstore and never, ever confused with a book that would be appropriate for the masses of girls who fell in love with Princess Mia (at least until they pass an acceptable age---and 13 and 14 ain't it). I was surprised because the book didn't really need the gratuitous, graphic sex to be a good read...the story could stand on its own without it. If you pick up this book thinking it will have the same mildly flirtatious and innocently romantic tone as the Princess Diaries series, you will be shocked and disappointed to find that Princess of Genovia Mia Thermopolis has quite the explicit imagination, as she is credited with the authoring of this book. I applaud that the proceeds go to a worthy cause, but at the same time please be aware this is a book for ADULT AUDIENCES...or at least the more mature, late teens...definitely not your Disney Princess!

The book was a true classic and I loved it, but due to the popularity of the Princess Diaries Series amongst really young girls, it is quite risky that it was released with the series as it contains quite vulgar scenes which may not be appropriate for young girls. But overall, GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!

The people in Finnula Finn's town are starving. Luckily, she's can wield a bow and arrow like nobody else. She's been keeping the town's people fed so they don't starve. She likes looking after people and not being a conventional women. When her sister comes to her needing help, she can't refuse. However, she knows nothing about capturing a man and holding him for ransom. When she finds one to her liking, she doesn't realize that she's in way over her head. First of all, he infuriates her. Second of all, she finds herself divulging all her secrets to him - well not all of them. She still doesn't want to talk about what happened on her wedding night. That subject is off limits, but nothing else appears to be off limits including her lips. How did she get herself into this mess and how could it end other than badly?

An adult romance novel written as a senior project by Princess Mia Thermoplis. She uses a pen name in an attempt to become an author without using her title. All the proceeds from this book will go towards Greenpeace.

An addicting and satisfying read. I read this yesterday during my snow day. And loved it. It was the perfect treat for the day.

Okay so the beginning had some major promise. The first half was a page turner. What's going to happen? Will they get together or not? A page turner that made me stay up way longer than I should have been awake. Then I passed that part and was kind of left deflated. I love these main characters but feel that the end was missing something. Like why was Finn acting the way she was? Hugo never asked her that. The reader knew why she was acting that way but he never did. I wanted answers and there were none. That's not to say that this wasn't a great romance novel because it was. There was no mushy ending where everything is revealed in the last page or so, which is the only thing I hate about romance novels. But I wanted more. Not sure what that more could have been but all I knwo is I wanted it.

I thought it was realky funny how meg cabot actually wrote the book that she mentioned mia writing in the princess diaries. When i read the princess diaries and this book was mentioned, i wished it was a real book, and i just thought id look it up for kicks not expecting to find anything, but its actually a real book. :-D

Well, I tried really hard to like this one, since I liked Princess Diaries, but this was so much worse!! First of all, Finnula is overly brazen, even for a tomboy, at a time when women were docile - there is NO indication whatsoever that she is a female. All the explicit scenes, placed seemingly at random, more than crossed the line b/w YA and a regular Harlequin romance. Even I, an 18 year old, thought it was too much to be called classy. The last straw was the overly predictable and phony battle b/w Hugo and Laroche. Definitely not for teens.
