The Princess Diaries

Mia Thermopolis (Anne Hathaway) is quite nerdy and not the prettiest (or most popular) girl in her San Francisco high school. So it's pretty surprising when her long-lost grandmother (Julie Andrews) all of a sudden announces that Mia is Princess of a small European country, Genovia, and the grandmother herself is queen. So Mia begins to have "princess lessons" with the queen. They're torture-but she becomes more princessly with each one. And then Mia's secret gets blurted out at her school, and suddenly she's Miss Popular. Everyone wants to be her friend and she's in all the news headlines. Will she forget who her true friends are? And will she realize that being a princess isn't all tiaras and pretty dresses? A sweet movie that kids will love.
Rated PG.

Hello Tanya!
Thank you for visiting Bookworm Readers. From past experiences, I find that the movie is very much different from the books. The books are more "chick-lit" while the movie is way more funny, realistic, and appropriate. If you were disappointed by the "Princess Diaries" series, you'd love the "Camp Princess" series or "Secrets of my Hollywood Life". Go to your local library for more information!
Peace, love, and books,
