Princess In Love-Princess Diaries Book 3 Lexile 880

Summary from Meg Cabot's website at: 

"Princess Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo may seem the luckiest girl ever. She's a princess, for starters. She also lives in New York City. And while she's no supermodel, mirrors do not crack at her reflection. Best of all, she finally has a boyfriend.The truth is, however, that Mia spends all her time doing one of three things: preparing for her nervewracking entrée into Genovian society under the slave-driving but elegant Grandmère, slogging through congestion unique to Manhattan in December, and avoiding further smooches from her hapless boyfriend Kenny.All she wants is a little peace and quiet. and a certain someone else to be her boyfriend. For Mia, being a princess in love is not the fairy-tale it's supposed to be. or is it?"

  Tara's review using Peck's Questions:
1. Reread the first paragraph of chapter 1. What’s in it that makes you read on?
The first paragraph in this book states what assessment is due for princess Mia’s English class and some of the hundred clubs that go on around the school. Then it goes on about her paper and what she wrote about. At first I thought it sounded really boring but I still read on because I wanted to know if she was in other clubs and what they do. It starts off on how she thinks her life is over because her mom is having her algebra teacher’s baby. She wasn’t sure what she thought about having a litte brother or sister but, later on in the book she didn’t think it was that bad.

2. Would this book make a good T.V. series? Why or why not?
The first two books in this series were already made into movies. The books have more detail than the movie but still the main points. Even though I thought the movies were great, I still think the books were better because of all the action that took place. Though in the movie Mia is almost an adult and in the book she is only 14. I think because there are so many books in this series, they could easily be made into a television series as well.

3. How is the main character different than you?
The main character in this book is the princess of Genovia, but I’m not. She’s 14 and a freshman. We are very different but we still have things in common. We both get excited over random things. She is more happy than me when good things happen, and when she gets frustrated with her grandma she doesn’t want to talk at all. I DO like to talk... :)
