Princess Diaries in the Spotlight - Meg Cabot

Category: Books

Genre: Chick Flick

Author: Meg Cabot

Overview and Review of Meg Cabot's Princess Diaries in the Spotlight.

I know, I know it's a chick flick. But, heck. Who cares? As long as it is a Cabot masterpiece. Yes, I call it that. The masterpiece of humorous chick flicks. Hehe.

I really love the way Meg writes, how she'd get a reader laugh and cry (Cry? really? well maybe sometimes.. when you laugh so hard you cry. Hehe). Even a person who doesn't likes reading much would be enthused by her writing. [ testimony from someone I know, who can't even read a book for long. ]

Of course, this book was where the movie Princess Diaries that starred Anne Hathaway came from. I'm sure there were a lot of alterations, specially on this second book... In the Spotlight and the second installation of the movie Princess Diaries.

Mia's distaste of her princess lessons which she calls the torture lessons from her Grandmère would be her frequent babbles in this book and also the relationship with her algebra teacher and her mom.

She'd often talk about Lilly's brother Michael as well.

Not hard to imagine the cast since we can practically relate them to the movie. Very entertaining, fun read.

Mentions our very own Imelda Marcos from Philippines

Mia: My mom does not know Imelda Marcos okay ? and Barbara Bush.
