I have to recommend the Princess Diaries for every girl! and I mean the books. Meg Cabot did an amazing job on these stories, and she really gets into the feelings a girl our age might have if we were thrust into a position such as Mia was. If you don't know the story, Mia is a young girl who is just starting high school. She is awkard and the complete of opposite of popular, not to mention she just found out she is the princess of her own small country. We get to hear her story from her point of view. Great read, but don't compare the books to the movies at all. They may have the same general story line, but thats where the similarities begin. The books obviously have so many more details, but the movie changes many things, such as names, places and even who's supposed to be dead or alive. The movies are great, and I'm a major fan of Julie Andrews, but the books are great. Every girl is a princess, and through these books, all of us get to be, through Mia! I think every girl should check them out!
