I read this series in my school days and really enjoyed at that point of time.the book and the movie are pretty different each with its own charm. I however enjoyed the book more than the movie.
STUFF ON THE BACKCOVER SAYS
What? A princess??
Me??? Yeah, right.
Mia Thermopolis is pretty sure there’s nothing worse than being a five-foot-nine, flat-chested freshman, who also happens to be flunking Algebra.
Is she ever in for a surprise.
First Mom announces that she’s dating Mia’s Algebra teacher. Then Dad has to go and reveal that he is the crown prince of Genovia. And guess who still doesn’t have a date for the Cultural Diversity Dance?
PLOT IN SHORT

Mia can be whinny and annoying at times
Lot of pop culture references may turn some readers off
Some parts might come across as pretentious
This series is for readers with a love for the chick-lit genre or for those looking for a easy breezy read. I loved the third book of this series and found the rest of them to be entertaining .Although this isn’t quite the ‘chicken soup for the soul’ Mia might help you deal with life’s problems a little bit better or maybe not. Read and find out for yourself.
