Mia's got everything a girl could possibly want. She's a princess and she's got a boyfriend! But that's where it all goes wrong. Because Kenny is just not the guy she really wants. Michael's the one she's loved forever but he's going out with someone infinitely cleverer than Mia. Someone who can clone Fruit Flies, for heaven's sake! Will the story end happily ever after for the Princess of Genovia?

My Review
Again this is going to be a mini review. Too many in the series to do detailed reviews - you'll be bored if I write about all of them!
Mia finally has a boyfriend but it's not at all what she expected, the boy that loves her is not the one that's stolen her heart. She finally admits that Michael is the one for her, but he turns up at school with Judith, a senior who's just as intelligent and into computers and Michael. Mia realises that she has no chance against such a girl. Should she stick with the boy she's got or follow her heart.
On top of that she's got her final exams, she's still struggling with Algebra and the Princess lessons are still taking over. Her mother is now living with her Algebra teacher happily married and very pregnant.
These books just keep getting better for me. The characters seem to be really growing and coming to life in the books. I liked the way Cabot handled the love issues - keeping it fresh and funny whilst heartwarming. 
Mia is really growing up and becoming a real princess. Lilly always makes me laugh she is so radical but completely harmless. A bit full of her self, but very caring of others too. 
Can't wait for more.

My Rating
I would give this book 8.5/10. Funny, easy to read and fresh.
