The Princess Diaries
She's just a New York City girl living with her artist mom…
NEWS FLASH: Dad is prince of Genovia. (So that's why a limo meets her at the airport!)
DOWNER: Dad can't have any more kids. (So there's no heir to the throne.)
SHOCK OF THE CENTURY: Like it or not, Mia Thermopolis is prime princess material.
THE WORST PART: Mia must take princess lessons from her dreaded Grandmère, the dowager princess of Genovia, who thinks Mia has a thing or two to learn before she steps up to the throne.
Well, her father can lecture her until he's royal–blue in the face about her princessly duty—no way is she moving to Genovia and leaving Manhattan behind.
But what's a girl to do when her name is PRINCESS AMELIA MIGNONETTE GRIMALDI THERMOPOLIS RENALDO?

Princess In The Spotlight/The Princess Diaries: Take Two
Just when Mia thought she had the whole Princess thing under control…
Things get out of hand, fast:
Since Mia's the brand—new crown princess of Genovia, indomitable dowager princess Grandmère arranges a national primetime interview for her. With just a few innocent remarks, Mia manages to enrage her best friend Lilly, practically get one of her teachers fired, and alienate the entire country of Genovia. (Population 30,000, but still!)
There's the havoc of the interview's aftermath and her dreaded princess lessons at the Plaza. Plus an unexpected announcement from her mother, and intriguing, exasperating letters from a secret admirer. Mia is swept up in a whirlwind of royal intrigue the likes of which hasn't been seen since volume I of The Princess Diaries.
What's an heir to the royal throne to do? But what’s a girl to do when her name is PRINCESS AMELIA MIGNONETTE GRIMALDI THERMOPOLIS RENALDO?

Princess In Love/The Princess Diaries: Third Time Lucky
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?

Princess In Waiting/The Princess Diaries: Mia Goes Fourth
Never before has the world seen such a princess.
Nor have her own subjects, for that matter. Mia's royal introduction to Genovia has mixed results: while her fashion sense is widely applauded, her position on the installation of public parking meters is met with resistance.
But the politics of bureaucracy are nothing next to Mia's real troubles. Between canceled dates with her long—sought—after royal consort, a second semester of the dreaded Algebra, more princess lessons from Grandmère as a result of the Genovian parking—meter thing, and the inability to stop gnawing on her fingernails, isn't there anything Mia is good at besides inheriting an unwanted royal title?

Project Princess/The Secret Princess Diaries
What on earth is that princess up to now?
Most princesses would prefer to spend their spring breaks in Gstaad, or some other equally unpronounceable European hot spot.
Not this one, though. Hammer in hand, Princess Mia embarks on an epic adventure for one so admittedly unhandy: along with her cohorts from school, she's off to build houses for the less fortunate. It doesn't take Mia long to realize that helping others—while an unimpeachably noble pastime—is very hard work. Will her giving spirit prevail? Will the house collapse due to royally clumsy construction? And most importantly, will Michael stop working long enough to kiss her?

Princess In Pink/The Princess Diaries: Give Me Five
Even princesses have dreams.
Things are looking up for Mia: She's the newest staffer on the school paper, and her miraculous completion of freshman Algebra is just around the corner. Plus she's about to get a new baby brother or sister. Could things possibly get any better?
But in her heart of hearts, Mia has one wish: an evening spent with Michael in a tux and a corsage on her wrist—in other words, the PROM. Michael, however, does not seem to share the dream that is the prom. Worse still, a service workers strike (with Grandmère and Lilly at the heart of it and on opposite sides) threatens the very existence of this year's prom.
Will the strike end in time? Can Michael be dissuaded from his anti—prom views? Most importantly, will Mia get to wear her pink prom dress?

Princess In Training/The Princess Diaries: Sixsational
Princess for president!
Student body president, that is. It's all the fault of Princess Mia's power—mad best friend and campaign manager, Lilly, who nominates her in the first place. This is not how Mia imagined kicking off her sophomore year, even if Grandmère thinks ruling her high school makes good practice for ruling Genovia someday.
As usual, Mia has bigger problems to worry about, though. Sophomore geometry appears to be just as hard as freshman algebra, and a shocking B on her first English assignment has Mia reeling. And with Michael, her one true love, uptown at college, what is the point of even getting up for school in the morning? The last straw is what Lana whispers to her on the lunch line about what college boys expect of their girlfriends.
Really, it's almost more than a princess in training can bear.

The Princess Present/The Princess Diaries: Mia‘s Christmas (also available as part of The Princess Diaries: Guide To Christmas)
Mia would give all the jewels in Genovia for the perfect present.
Every year, Princess Mia spends the holidays in Genovia with Grandmère. This year, she's looking forward to the most perfect Christmas ever: her boyfriend, Michael, and her best friend, Lilly, are coming to Genovia, too. But even a princess's plans can go awry. Lilly has a lot to learn about palace protocol, and with all the state holiday functions Mia must attend, there's no time to linger under the mistletoe with Michael. Worst of all, Mia hasn't been able to find him the perfect gift.
Can Mia stop her (bah—hum)bugging long enough to see that the perfect present has nothing to do with international express courier—and everything to do with real love? (Though some shiny silver ribbon never hurts…).

Party Princess/The Princess Diaries: Seventh Heaven
Princesses just want to have fun.
This spring, Mia’s determined to have a good time, despite the fact that the student government over which she presides is suddenly broke. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it) Grandmère has an elaborate scheme to simultaneously raise money, catapult Mia to theatrical fame, and link her romantically with an eligible teen bachelor not her boyfriend. It’s no wonder that Michael, the love of her life, seems to think she’s a psycho, or worse: not much fun.
Is it possible that Mia, soon-to-be star of the stage, president of the student body and future ruler of Genovia, doesn’t know how to party?

Sweet Sixteen Princess/Part of the Princess Diaries: Year Book
Sixteen is the magic number.
Mia doesn’t always have the best luck with parties, so even though it’s her sweet sixteenth, she doesn’t want a birthday bash. As usual, Grandmère has other ideas, and thinks a reality TV special is just the thing in order to celebrate royally. The whole scheme smacks of Lilly’s doing—Lilly whose own TV show is still only limited to local cable viewers. Will Mia be able to stop Grandmère’s plan? Will her friends ever forgive her if she does stop it, since it involves all of them taking the royal jet to Genovia for an extravaganza the likes of which would turn even Paris Hilton green with envy? Why can’t Mia get what she really wants: an evening alone with Michael?
With a little luck, this sweet sixteen princess might just get her wish—a birthday that's royally romantic.

Valentine Princess/The Princess Diaries: In Love
Valentine's Day means flowers, chocolates, and all-out romance.
That is, it usually means those things. But when you're Princess Mia, nothing happens the way it's supposed to. For one thing, Grandmère seems determined to prove that boy (or Michael, as he is commonly known) isn't the right one for the crown princess of Genovia. And Mia isn't having much luck proving otherwise, since Michael has a history of being decidedly against any kind of exploitative commercialization (Valentine's Day, as it is commonly known).
Boris can declare his love openly to Lilly, and even Kenny comes through with a paltry Whitman's Sampler. So why can't Michael give in to Cupid and tell Mia he loves her - preferably with something wrapped in red or pink and accompanied by roses - in time to prove he's Mia's true prince?

Princess On The Brink/The Princess Diaries: After Eight
In the eighth Princess Diaries novel, Princess Mia finds herself facing some very difficult problems. She’s a junior now, and even though she survived freshman Algebra and sophomore Geometry, there’s no guarantee she’ll make it through Precalculus. On top of all the mathematical strife, her beloved boyfriend, Michael, is leaving for Japan for a year. Precalc has nothing on preparing for the worst separation ever!

A princess always knows how to celebrate the holidays. There's Christmas, Hanukkah, Yule, Chinese New Year, Saturnalia ... to name just a few.
Then there's gift giving, the royal Genovian Fabergé advent calendar, hot chocolate with marshmallows—oh, and all those fabulous holiday movies.

In this next to last Princess Diaries book, we pick up where #8 leaves off. Michael has left for Japan and Mia falls into despair. As she copes with her depression, she also needs to deal with the fact that Lily won't speak to her and that she has discovered documents that might change the future of Genovia forever. There are also new developments in her relationship with J.P and Lana, of all people!

The last book in the Princess Diaries series is due at the beginning of January 2009 in both the US and UK/NZ/Aus markets.
Mia’s always been ready to be rid of her tiara…
But is Manhattan ready to be rid its favorite royal?
It’s the last month of Mia’s senior year, and things seem great. She’s aced her senior project, got accepted to her dream college(s), and has her blowout eighteenth birthday gala coming up…not to mention prom, graduation, and Genovia’s first-ever elections.
What’s not to love about her life? Well…
Her senior project? It’s a romance novel she secretly wrote, and no one wants to publish…
And Prince Phillipe’s campaign in the Genovian elections isn’t going well, thanks to her totally loathsome cousin René, who decided to run against him.
Her dreamy boyfriend J.P. is so sweet and seemingly perfect. But is he the one?
Her first love, Michael, is back from Japan…and back in her life.
With not just Genovia’s, but her own, future hanging in the balance, Mia’s got some choices to make…which college, which guy…? How can she know what the right decision is, especially when what she decides might determine not just the next four years, but…
