Mia Thermopolis is a nine-grader living with her mother in New York City. Her father lives in far off Genovia. One day he comes to visit and surprises Mia with the news that he's actually the prince of Genovia. Not only that, he just found out he can't father any more children, leaving Mia as his sole heir to the throne. Because of this, she must now learn to be a princess under the tutelage of her grumpy and strict Grandmere.

This was a very fun young adult book. I listened to the audio book, narrated by Anne Hathaway. (She played Mia in the movie version of the book, which I have not seen.) She has the voice and emotions of a typical ninth grader down pat! I was laughing out loud at times. Of course she is helped by the fact that Meg Cabot gets teenagers and writes teenage characters so well. There are several more books in this series and I'm looking forward to reading them.
