Mia is about to turn fifteen – and can't wait to dance the night away with Michael at the biggest, most romantic event of her life so far: the senior prom! But nothing's going according to plan. Not only does Mia face a snoozefest summer of sceptre-wielding in Genovia. Even worse is the fact that Michael hasn't even INVITED Mia to the prom at all. Hello, what is going on here? Just as Mia comes up with a perfect plan to change her man's mind, disaster strikes. A disaster that only a genius like Grandmere can overcome. . . 

My Review
Mia is almost fifteen and is looking forward to attending Michael's prom. But first she has to get him to invite her, get through the rest of teh school year, deal with a birthday party, deal with some controversial politics and keep her grandma at bay, oh yeah and deal with her VERY pregnant mother who looks like she will drop anyday.
I enjoyed this one more than book 4, Mia has gotten less whiny and knows what she wants, she's just not sure how to get it. I loved Lilly again, she is causing trouble once more but things go further than you could ever imagine. Tina comes out with random funny comments and Michael is so lovely but so oblivious. 
I laughed out loud to parts of this one and got through it very quickly. The characters are really coming alive and I'm getting a better view of all of them. Can't wait to see what is coming next.

My Rating
I would give this book 8/10. Great fun and laughs.
