From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess
Feiwel & Friends, 2015
Audience: Younger Teens
Olivia Grace Clarisse Harrison has always known she was different. Brought up by her aunt's family in New Jersey, book-and-music-loving Olivia feels out of place in their life of high fashion and fancy cars. But she never could have imagined how out of place she really was until Mia Thermopolis, Princess of Genovia, pops into her school and announces that Olivia is her long-lost sister. Olivia is a princess. A dream come true, right? But princesses have problems too.
In FROM THE NOTEBOOKS OF A MIDDLE SCHOOL PRINCESS a new middle grade series, readers will see Genovia, this time through the illustrated diaries of a spunky new heroine, 12 year old Olivia Grace, who happens to be the long lost half-sister of Princess Mia Thermopolis.
This book was everything I had hoped it would be! I absolutely loved it. It lived up to The Princess Diaries, but it was different enough that it wasn’t a boring copy. Olivia’s rude family reminded me a lot of the Dursleys in Harry Potter. If Harry Potter was a princess instead of a wizard, From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess is what you’d get. It was hilarious and scandalous and I loved seeing Mia all grown up. I can’t wait for the next book.
