Mia finally gets it together and does things for herself. She determines what she wants after high school and goes for it and I am so proud of her - is that weird to say about a character? oh well I am.
In this final (kind of) installment, we catch up with Mia in her senior year of high school, so a few years were skipped but in the book the reasoning is good - she hasn't been keeping a journal so thus no Diary entries for us to read. Instead she has been working on her senior project and just handling life. Mia decides that she is going to become a writer no matter what and so her project is a romance novel and under a pen name she sends it out to be published. Then there is her own romance with J.P., he seems like a great choice, well until Michael comes back and pretty much sweeps her off her feet. So she has to make a few life decisions and pick a college too. Even through all of her stress Mia handles everything pretty well and it all falls into place as it should for a princess. This was a wonderful end to Mia's high school diaries and I am very curious how the next book will pick up.
I did find the jump to this last book a little jarring though, and while I really enjoyed it I almost felt as if there could have been another book before this one and the last. Considering the fact Mia knew the Japanese princess, I feel as if there could have been a book in which Mia visited Japan while Michael was there, and when I reached the end of this book I realized that I was disappointed that never happened. For that reason the book loses a star.
Still, this has been a fun series and it wrapped up in a way that made me happy as a reader, so if you haven't read this book yet in the series please do so!
and i must say: wow. this is AMAZING. meg cabot has done an AWESOME job.
and to those who will say it's cliche and predictable: whatever. of course "the princess diaries" has a target group. and did you seriously expect mia would NOT get out of there with a happy ending - one she has worked for and achieved herself, as i might mention.
i have loved the whole series. not because it's so intellectually challenging, or will change the world, or whatnot. but because it's funny, charming, and (*sigh*) romantic. mia puts it quite well herself in "forever princess": books like that are supposed to make you happy, to make you giggle, shriek and cry while reading, and they want you to leave them with a sigh, a smile and a little tingling sensation in your stomach. not great literature, but boy was i believing in the good things in life after having finished this. so what if its not realistic? so what if it's a little cheesy? we all expected that. and yet we read these books. because our everyday life is everyday enough, we just love to snuggle up on the couch with princess mia and some chocolate, and escape to a world where there's tiaras and ball gowns and michael. : )
i hope i didn't put in too many spoilers : P
all i can say is: if you liked the rest of the series, you will NOT be disappointed, and to those who are new to the princess diaries: if you're looking for a laugh-out-loud, incredibly uplifting and smart teenage romance novel, this is for you. princess mia comes across as a mature, independant girl and role model (i do NOT agree with the statement that the message of the book is that you need a guy to be happy... if thats what you think, read it again!). she has finally grown up (and yet manages to stay herself), she makes conscious decisions and also makes peace with the world. this gives the book credibility and also lets you trust mia to be capable to manage her life from now on. go thermopolis!
and even though i almost cried about knowing this is the final book of the series, i can definately say: this is a GREAT ending.
