Amazon.com Review

It would seem that 14-year-old Mia Thermopolis ("five foot nine inches tall, with no visible breasts, feet the size of snowshoes") has the kind of life every Manhattan teenager could only dream of: She is, in her spare time, the princess of the European country of Genovia. Alas, the Royal Privilege is more like a Predicament. Not only does she have to endure daily princess lessons from her critical Grandmère ("It isn't as if I'm going to show up at the castle and start hurling olives at the ladies-in-waiting"), but her new stepfather is also her algebra teacher, her mother is pregnant and vomiting, she doesn't like her boyfriend very much, and she's convinced the real love of her life--her best friend's older brother--thinks of her as a kid.

Written in diary form like Louise Rennison's award-winning Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging, Meg Cabot's endearing and often hilarious novel Princess in Love--third in the series after The Princess Diaries and Princess in the Spotlight--is sure to appeal to teen readers who will be able to relate to Mia--a young woman who would like people to know that "behind this mutant facade beats the heart of a person who is striving, just like everybody else in this world, to find self-actualization." (Ages 12 and older) --Karin Snelson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

Her Royal Highness Princess Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo of Genovia, also known as Mia, prepares to meet the populace of her newfound kingdom all while trying to dump one boyfriend for another in Princess in Love, the third in the Princess Diaries series by Meg Cabot.

Format: Hardcover
15-year-old Princess (New York teenager) Mia Thermopolis is back once more in her third hilirous diary of her life! During this time in her teenage life Mia has got everything anybody would want! Shes got a boyfriend, Kenny, fame, and on top of that Princess of Genovia! So you would think Mia would be pretty happy right? WRONG! Kenny is definitely NOT the right guy for her. Micheal, Lily's brother, is the one she has always wanted. However everything seems to go wrong and now she is trying to aviod further smooches with Kenny. And now Micheal is going out with somebody who is definitely more intelligent that Mia and most likely can clone fruit flies. On top of that her mother is now pregnant with her stepfather's baby. Oh yeah, did we mention that Mia's stepfather is also her Algebra teacher? And guess who has been failing algebra for a long time...? Plus, Mia has got the added pressure of preparing a speech for her nerve-wracking entree into the Genovian society. Things aren't looking to good for her. Maybe Lily can turn things around when they hatch a plan to get Micheal back.
After reading the first two diaries Mia wrote I couldn't wait for this one and it didn't disappoint me! Mia is still her old self with her sassy and funny humor which makes you laugh out loud. This book also had some emotional parts in it too which grips you. All and all a great book! It definitely lived up to my expectations. However I heard that this will be the last of Mia. I really hope that isn't true though. I recommend this book to all teens who love to have a laugh of two!

Format: Hardcover
I am almost 18 years old (just a few years out of the young adult reading level), but I love this series. The books are written in such an endearing, humorous style that it's almost impossible not to like them. The third book picks up about a month after the second one left off and we quickly learn that Mia's life is still full of quirky problems.
While the previous books dealt with Mia's desire to have a boyfriend, this one centered around her dilemma of getting rid of one. Normally, this topic would be written so that the boyfriend, Kenny, seemed like a jerk who was keeping the girl from being with the boy, Michael, she was supposed to be with, but instead Kenny is written as being nice and sweet and an ideal boyfriend. Except for one thing, he isn't Michael.
Besides her boy problems, Mia is still being sentenced to the often hilarious "princess lessons" with her grandmother to prepare for her visit to Genovia. Mia also has problems with family, friends, cheerleaders, school (especially Algebra), and achieving self-actualization. In other words, she's basically a normal teenage girl with an extraordinary life.
If you haven't read these books, I would highly recommend giving them a try. They are nothing like the cutely sappy Disney movie of the same name, except for the general plot idea and character names. These are books that are always entertaining and impossible to put down- no matter how old you are.

Mia Thermopolis and her crazy life are back. Only this time she's facing more obstacles than ever. Her mother is officially married to her Algebra teacher, and pregnant with his baby. Not only that, Mia now has a boyfriend (Kenny), who she likes as a friend, not a boyfriend. Michael (Mia's best friend Lilly's brother, and the guy Mia is in love with) now has a girlfriend. Some girl who can clone fruit flies.
Now Mia is determined to break up with Kenny, pass all of her Finals (even Algebra), and confess her love to Michael Moscovitz before she has to leave to be introduced to the people of Genovia, if it kills her.
Meg Cabot has done another excellent job and brought us more hilarious misadventures of Mia. This is a must read for any fan of "The Princess Diaries" book series, or the "Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging" book series.

I was really looking forward to reading the last of this wonderful series. I couldn't wait to see how Mia dealt with her enormous crush on her best friend's brother Michael. What Meg Cabot delivered did not disappoint. I finished the book in two days, but only because I had to force myself to read a bunch of chapters of Great Expectations for a quiz the next day. Otherwise, you bet I would have gobbled the whole thing up in one day, its that good.
True to the rest of the books, Mia gets herself into some monumental scrapes involving a Genovian fashion designer named Sebastiano and the fact that she can't stand to kiss her current boyfriend, Kenny. And as always, Grandmere is in the fray, making all sorts of trouble. Add an Algebra final that Mia needs to ace, and you've got one heavy stress load for a princess.
To anyone who is reluctant to read the books because the movie did not leave a favorable impression, I urge you to atleast give them a try. The books are much more teen oriented and much funnier. Anyone who does not find humor in this series needs to heck for a pulse. Meg Cabot has truly created a masterpiece.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on December 11, 2003
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Mia Thermopolis is a normal fourteen-year-old girl living in Manhattan. Well, as normal as a girl can be with a boyfriend she doesn't love because she's in love with her best friend's older brother. He happens to be a senior at her high school and just might be going out with a fruit fly cloning senior. All the while, her current and first boyfriend, who is also her Biology partner and the only reason she's not flunking that particular subject, still hasn't asked her to the Christmas Dance at school. Oh, and did I mention she's a crown princess? And that her first visit to the country, Genovia, that she will someday rule ("population 50,000 and less, but still") is coming up?
I'm a lover of fantasy, but this series, of which Princess Dairies: Princess in Love is the third book out of, has reintroduced me to the wonders of fiction and realistic fiction. This book is very funny! Mia always ends up getting herself into trouble, and is always worrying about something or another. If you need a funny fictional book, definitely check this one out!
