Princess Diaries, Volume X

KIRKUS REVIEW

The conclusion of the Princess Diaries saga. The tenth and (at) last diary of Mia Thermopolis, crown princess of Genovia and New York City teen, chronicles her anxieties about college, sex, lying and loyalty in the weeks leading up to her graduation from high school. Excerpts from Ransom My Heart, the romance novel Mia secretly wrote for her senior project and is pseudonymously shopping around to publishers, punctuate the journal. Poor “Daphne Delacroix” is plagued by a constant stream of rejection letters—although Avon apparently has no such compunction and will simultaneously publish the work, with proceeds to benefit Greenpeace (ISBN: 978-0-06-170007-1, $13.95). Meanwhile, boyfriend J.P. is exasperatingly remote, her grandmother runs amok while planning her 18th birthday party and ex-boyfriend Michael unexpectedly returns from Japan. How Mia resolves her various conflicts with boys, friends and family will surprise no one, but the tidy ending will satisfy readers who have stuck with her through nine previous volumes. Cabot’s skillful use of text messaging, slang and humor strike a breezy tone that makes this a quick, easy read. (Fiction. 12 & up)
