Meg Cabot Books Overview

The Princess Diaries

Mia Thermopolis is your average urban ninth grader. Even though she lives in Greenwich Village with a single mom who is a semifamous painter, Mia still puts on her Doc Martens one at a time, and the most exciting things she ever dreams about are smacking lips with sexy senior Josh Richter, ‘six feet of unadulterated hotness,’ and passing Algebra I. Then Mia’s dad comes to town, and drops a major bomb. Turns out he’s not just a European politician as he’s always lead her to believe, but actually the prince of a small country! And Mia, his only heir, is now considered the crown princess of Genovia! She doesn’t even know how to begin to cope: ‘I am so NOT a princess…
. You never saw anyone who looked less like a princess than I do. I mean, I have really bad hair…
a really big mouth and no breasts and feet that look like skis.’ And if this news wasn’t bad enough, Mia’s mom has started dating her algebra teacher, the paparazzi is showing up at school, and she’s in a huge fight with her best friend, Lilly. How much more can this reluctant Cinderella handle? Kit contents: paperback book, audio cassettes, teacher’s guide.

Princess in the Spotlight / Take Two / A Royal Disaster

Just when Mia thought she had the whole Princess thing under control…

Things get out of hand, fast:

Since Mia’s the brand-new crown princess of Genovia, indomitable dowager princess GrandmEre arranges a national primetime interview for her. With just a few innocent remarks, Mia manages to enrage her best friend Lilly, practically get one of her teachers fired, and alienate the entire country of Genovia. Population 50,000, but still!

There’s the havoc of the interview’s aftermath and her dreaded princess lessons at the Plaza. Plus an unexpected announcement from her mother, and intriguing, exasperating letters from a secret admirer. Mia is swept up in a whirlwind of royal intrigue the likes of which hasn’t been seen since volume I of The Princess Diaries.

What’s an heir to the royal throne to do?

Princess in Love / Princess in the Middle

Princess Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo may seem the luckiest girl ever.

She’s a princess, for starters. She also lives in New York City. And while she’s no supermodel, mirrors do not crack at her reflection. Best of all, she finally has a boyfriend.

The truth is, however, that Mia spends all her time doing one of three things: preparing for her nerve-racking entrEe into Genovian society under the slave-driving but elegant GrandmEre, slogging through congestion unique to Manhattan in December, and avoiding further smooches from her hapless boyfriend, Kenny.

All she wants is a little peace and quiet…
and a certain someone else to be her boyfriend. For Mia, being a princess in love is not the fairy tale it’s supposed to be…
or is it?

Princess in Waiting / Royally Obsessed

Never before has the world seen such a princess. Nor have her own subjects, for that matter. Mia’s royal introduction to Genovia has mixed results: while her fashion sense is widely applauded, her position on the installation of public parking meters is met with resistance. But the politics of bureaucracy are nothing next to Mia’s real troubles. Between canceled dates with her long sought after royal consort, a second semester of the dreaded Algebra, more princess lessons from Grandm re as a result of the Genovian parking meter thing, and the inability to stop gnawing on her fingernails, isn’t there anything Mia is good at besides inheriting an unwanted royal title?

Project Princess

What on earth is that princess up to now?

Hammer in hand, Princess Mia embarks on an epic adventure for one so admittedly unhandy: Along with her cohorts from school, she’s off to build houses for the less fortunate. It doesn’t take Mia long to realize that helping others — while an unimpeachably noble pastime — is very hard work. Will her giving spirit prevail? Will the house collapse due to royally clumsy construction? And most importantly, will Michael stop working long enough to kiss her?

What comes between Volumes IV and V of The Princess Diaries? Volume IV and a Half, of course!

Princess in Pink / Prom Princess

Things are looking up for Mia: She’s the newest staffer on the school paper, and her miraculous completion of freshman Algebra is just around the corner. Plus she’s about to get a new baby brother or sister. Could things possibly get any better?

But in her heart of hearts, Mia has one wish: an evening spent with Michael in a tux and a corsage on her wrist in other words, the PROM. Michael, however, does not seem to share the dream that is the prom. Worse still, a service workers strike with Grandm re and Lilly at the heart of it and on opposite sides threatens the very existence of this year’s prom.

Will the strike end in time? Can Michael be dissuaded from his anti prom views? Most importantly, will Mia get to wear her pink prom dress?

Princess in Training / Sixsational

It’s an all new school year for Princess Mia, with all new clas*ses, all new challenges…
and all new worries. With a baby brother at home who won’t stop crying and a potential eco disaster in her native land that has all of Europe in an uproar, Mia’s got a lot more on her mind than just a case of the sophomore slumps: There’s Ms. Martinez, the new English teacher who can’t seem to stand Mia or her writing. Michael, so busy with his new clas*ses at Columbia, barely has time to IM, let alone make out. Lana, who has some disturbing information on just what college boys expect from their girlfriends. Lilly, who seems to think Mia has plenty of time in between flunking geometry and her princess lessons to run for student body president. And of course Grandmere, who has a plan to keep Genovia from being thrown out of the EU that seems to include making unscheduled appearances in the hallways of Albert Einstein High in her tiara, and forcing her only granddaughter to fondle the body parts of long deceased saints…
Really, it’s almost more than a princess in training can bear. From the Compact Disc edition.

The Princess Present

Mia would give all the jewels in Genovia for the perfect present Every year, Princess Mia spends the holidays in Genovia with Grandm re. This year, she’s looking forward to the most perfect Christmas ever: her boyfriend, Michael, and her best friend, Lilly, are coming to Genovia, too. But even a princess’s plans can go awry. Lilly has a lot to learn about palace protocol, and with all the state holiday functions Mia must attend, there’s no time to linger under the mistletoe with Michael. Worst of all, Mia hasn’t been able to find him the perfect gift. Can Mia stop her bah humbugging long enough to see that the perfect present has nothing to do with international express courier and everything to do with real love? Though some shiny silver ribbon never hurts…

Party Princess / Royal Rebel

Princess just want to have fun

This spring, Mia’s determined to have a good time, despite the fact that the student government over which she presides is suddenly broke. Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it Grandmere has an elaborate scheme to simultaneously raise money, catapult Mia to theatrical fame, and link her romantically with an eligible teen bachelor, not her boyfriend. It’s no wonder that Michael, the love of her life, seems to think she’s a psycho, or worse: not much fun.

Is it possible that Mia, soon-to-be star of the stage, president of the student body, and future ruler of Genovia, doesn’t know how to party?

Sweet Sixteen Princess

Sixteen is the magic number Mia doesn’t always have the best luck with parties, so even though it’s her sweet sixteenth, she doesn’t want a birthday bash. As usual, Grandm re has other ideas, and thinks a reality TV special is just the thing in order to celebrate royally. The whole scheme smacks of Lilly’s doing Lilly, whose own TV show is still only limited to local cable viewers. Will Mia be able to stop Grandm re’s plan? Will her friends ever forgive her if she does stop it, since it involves all of them taking the royal jet to Genovia for an extravaganza the likes of which would turn even Paris Hilton green with envy? Why can’t Mia get what she really wants: an evening alone with Michael? With a little luck, this Sweet Sixteen Princess might just get her wish a birthday that’s royally romantic.

Princess on the Brink / After Eight / Royal Scandal

At last, Mia is a junior. An upperclassperson. Free of her responsibilities as student body president. So why is it that everything is going so terribly wrong? What is she doing in Intro to Creative Writing? When she has made it through Algebra and Geometry, why must she be faced with Precalculus? And for the love of all that is Genovian, why has Lilly nominated her for school prez again? All this is nothing compared to the news Michael springs on her, however. On top of all the mathematical strife, her beloved boyfriend is leaving for Japan for a year. Precalc has nothing on preparing for the worst separation ever! Turns out there is one way she might convince Michael to stay. But will she? Or won’t she? No matter what, Mia seems headed for disaster.

Princess Mia / To the Nines / Bad Heir Day

A Princess on her own…
Mia has been invited to speak at a gala for Domina Rei, an elite society of powerful businesswomen. But what could she possibly have to say? Michael has broken up with her, her bff Lilly won’t speak to her, and her parents are forcing her to see a therapist. Even J.P.’s efforts to cheer Mia up he’s being really sweet! aren’t helping. Just when things couldn’t get worse, Mia discovers a long forgotten diary of a teenage princess of Genovia. It could be just the inspiration Mia needs to write her speech but what it reveals might change everything.

Forever Princess / Ten Out of Ten / Crowning Glory

What’s a Princess to do? It’s Mia’s senior year, and things seem great. She aced her senior project, got accepted to her dream colleges, and has her birthday gala coming up…
not to mention prom, graduation, and Genovia’s first ever elections. What’s not to love about her life? Well…
Her senior project? It’s a romance novel she secretly wrote, and no one wants to publish it. Prince Phillipe’s campaign in the Genovian elections isn’t going well, thanks to her totally loathsome cousin Ren , who decided to run against him. Her boyfriend, J.P., is so sweet and seemingly perfect. But is he the one? And her first love, Michael, is back from Japan…
and back in her life. With Genovia’s and her own future hanging in the balance, Mia’s got some decisions to make: Which college? Which guy? How can she choose? Especially when what she decides might determine not just the next four years, but…

Princess Lessons

All you need to know to be a princess Or Just live like one Compiled by Mia Thermopolis aka Princess Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo of Genovia

Perfect Princess

Sleeping Beauty, Victoria, Cleopatra, Snow White, Elizabeth, Pocahontas, Mia Thermopolis: all princesses Do YOU have what it takes to be a princess? princess mia will help you find out Best selling Princess Diaries author Meg Cabot and acclaimed fashion artist Chesley McLaren team up again to display this clever royal roster of princesses of the world. Big or small, old or new, fact or fiction, our favorite princess Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo aka Mia will point out why these princesses rule, and how any girl can too!

Holiday Princess

Every royal’s must have guide to the holidays

A princess always knows how to celebrate the holidays. There’s Christmas, Hanukkah, Yule, Chinese New Year, Saturnalia…
to name just a few.

Then there’s gift giving, the royal Genovian Faberg Advent calendar, hot chocolate with marshmallows oh, and all those fabulous holiday movies. How will you celebrate this holiday season? Mia and her subjects have a few ideas.

Valentine Princess

That is, it usually means those things. But when you’re Princess Mia, nothing happens the way it’s supposed to. For one thing, Grandm re seems determined to prove that boy or Michael, as he is commonly known isn’t the right one for the crown princess of Genovia. And Mia isn’t having much luck proving otherwise, since Michael has a history of being decidedly against any kind of exploitative commercialization Valentine’s Day, as it is commonly known.

Boris can declare his love openly to Lilly, and even Kenny comes through with a paltry Whitman’s Sampler. So why can’t Michael give in to Cupid and tell Mia he loves her preferably with something wrapped in red or pink and accompanied by roses in time to prove he’s Mia’s true prince?

Shadowland (As: Jenny Carroll)

‘You’re dead. You don’t belong here.’ Susannah just traveled a gazillion miles from New York to California in order to live with a bunch of stupid boys her new stepbrothers. She hasn’t even unpacked yet, she’s made her mother practically cry already, and now there’s a ghost sitting in her new bedroom. True, Jesse’s a very attractive guy ghost, but that’s not the point. Life hasn’t been easy these past sixteen years. That’s because Susannah’s a mediator a contact person for just about anybody who croaks, leaving things…
well, untidy. At least Jesse’s not dangerous. Unlike Heather, the angry girl ghost hanging out at Susannah’s new high school…

Ninth Key (As: Jenny Carroll)

‘There’s no such thing as ghosts.’ At least, that’s what the scientific community believes. High school sophomore Susannah Simon wishes she could agree. She’s only lived in sunny California for two weeks, and already her life’s a whirlwind of pool parties, excellent hair days, and new friends. Oh, yeah…
and her stepbrothers. But otherwise, things are going fab. Until the ghost of a dead woman shows up at her bedside, screaming and begging Suze to find ‘Red’ and tell him that he isn’t responsible for her death. Tracking down a murderer isn’t exactly easy, especially when the clues that Suze pieces together lead straight to the father of Tad Beaumont, the cutest and richest boy in school…
and the first boy who’s ever asked Suze out. Oops.

Reunion / Mean Spirits (As: Jenny Carroll)

Ghosts aren’t dogs. They don’t come when you call them. But sixteen year old Suze sure wishes that Jesse the hot guy ghost who won’t quit haunting her bedroom would show up right now. Because Suze a mediator, someone who helps guide wayward spirits back to where they belong is in way over her head when she tackles the ghosts of four star high school students who were killed in a tragic car accident…
. Trouble is, it’s starting to look as if there was nothing accidental about it, and these four are out for revenge…
and not against just the geek who killed them, but anyone who stands in their way.

Darkest Hour / Young Blood (As: Jenny Carroll)

Summer of Terror It’s Suze’s sixteenth summer, but instead of spending it at the beach, she’s trapped working as a baby sitter at a swanky resort. Never mind that one of her charges turns out to be a budding mediator himself, or that his older brother has major boyfriend potential. Suze has way more important things to deal with, like the discovery of a grave in her own backyard. Does it belong to Jesse, the hot cowboy ghost with whom she shares a bedroom? Is that why he’s suddenly nowhere to be found? Or is Jesse’s disappearance due to something much more nefarious…
even diabolic? Suze is as determined to find Jesse as she is to avenge his murder…
even if she must risk certain death herself.

Haunted / Grave Doubts

My name is Susannah Simon, and I am a mediator — a liason between the living and the dead. If you think this gets in the way of my attempt at a normal sixteen-year-old life, you’d be right. You try going to the mall while constantly being accosted by the undead.

Not that this is a bad thing all the time. Like, for example, when I discovered my bedroom is haunted by Jesse, the ghost of a nineteenth-century hottie. While I haven’t made much progress with him only one kiss so far, I remain optimistic. Jesse’s inexplicable resistance to my charms is not my only obstacle, though: there’s this other guy. A live one, who has the same gift of gab with the undead I have. In the same way I’m after Jesse, this guy is after me. And he knows how to send Jesse to the Great Beyond. For good.

So I guess you could say I’m haunted. I just never thought it would be by someone who isn’t dead.

Twilight / Heaven Sent

Suze has gotten used to ghosts. They wake her up in the middle of the night. They haunt her locker at school. She’s even spotted a few down at Carmel Beach. Suze is a mediator, after all, and communicating with the dead is all in a day’s work for her. The last thing she ever expected was to fall in love with one: Jesse, a nineteenth century hottie.

But when she and Paul Slater, himself a mediator of undeniable power and dubious intent, discover that the powers they share aren’t limited to helping ghosts resolve their earthly woes, but can also be used to determine whether or not they become ghosts in the first place, Suze can’t help but freak. Not because she suddenly knows how to alter the course of history, but because Paul can, too. And Paul would like nothing better than to prevent Jesse’s murder, keeping him from becoming a ghost and allowing him to live a natural life at last…
but in the nineteenth century. Meaning Jesse and Suze would never meet.

Suddenly, Suze is faced with the most important decision of her life: allow the only guy she’s ever loved to have the life he’s always longed for…
or keep him anchored forever in half life at her side. Will Jesse choose to live without her, or die to love her?

When Lightning Strikes

Fire in the sky Just because her best friend wants to exercise, Jessica Mastriani agrees to walk the two miles home from their high school. Straight into a huge Indiana thunderstorm. And straight into trouble. Not that Jess has never been in trouble before. Her extracurricular activities, instead of cheerleading or 4 H, include fistfights with the football team and monthlong stints in detention luckily, sitting right next to Rob, the sexiest senior around. But this trouble is serious. Because somehow on that long walk home, Jessica acquired a newfound talent. An amazing power that can be used for good…
or for evil. Run, Jessica. Run.

Code Name Cassandra

‘Help me find my little girl.’ Jess Mastriani dubbed ‘Lightning Girl’ by the press when, after a huge storm, she develops a psychic ability to find missing children has lost her miraculous powers. Or has she? She would like the media and the government to think so. All Jess wants is to be left alone, by everyone except sexy Rob Wilkins who still hasn’t called, by the way…
. But it doesn’t look like Jess is going to get her wish especially not while she’s stuck working at a summer camp for musically gifted kids. Then the father of a missing girl shows up to beg Jess to find his daughter. Jess can’t say no, but now the feds are on her trail again, as is one ornery stepdad, who’d like to see Lightning Girl…
well, dead.

Safe House

‘Help me find my little girl.’

Jess Mastriani — dubbed ‘Lightning Girl’ by the press when, after a huge storm, she develops a psychic ability to find missing children — has lost her miraculous powers. Or has she? She would like the media and the government to think so. All Jess wants is to be left alone, by everyone except sexy Rob Wilkins — who still hasn’t called, by the way…

But it doesn’t look like Jess is going to get her wish — especially not while she’s stuck working at a summer camp for musically gifted kids. Then the father of a missing girl shows up to beg Jess to find his daughter. Jess can’t say no, but now the feds are on her trail again, as is one ornery stepdad, who’d like to see Lightning Girl…
well, dead.


Sixteen year old Jessica Mastriani knew she wasn’t going to be able to hide her psychic powers from the U.S. government interested in utilizing her special skills for their own devices forever. But she never thought that she and Cyrus Krantz, the special agent brought in to ‘convince’ Jess to join his elite team of ‘specially gifted’ crime solvers, would turn out to have something in common. But when a local boy’s disappearance is attributed to a backwoods militai group, Jess’s goal to find the missing child and Dr. Krantz’s to stop a group of madmen before they kill again turn out to be one and the same. Suddenly Jess finds herself working with one enemy in order to stop a far worse one. In an atmosphere of hate and fear, can Jess and Dr. Krantz not to mention Jess’s would be boyfriend Rob work together to unite a community and save a life…
without losing their own?

Missing You

Ever since a walk home on a particularly stormy day, Jessica Mastriani has had an ability like no other. She became known worldwide as Lightning Girl-a psychic who could find the location of anyone, dead or alive. Jess finally had no choice but to embrace her newfound talent, and ended up lending her skills to the U.S. government.

But her work for them has taken a terrible toll, and Jess resurfaces months later a shadow of her former self, her powers gone, Lightning Girl no more. Her only hope is starting over in a new place, a big city where nobody knows her. It’s only when Rob Wilkins unexpectedly shows up on her doorstep that she’s forced to face her past. Rob, all the way from back home, needs her help. But how can Jess, her powers gone, find anyone, let alone the sister of a man she once loved…
when she can’t even find herself?

But in her sixteenth year, Vicky is unceremoniously shipped off to London to find a husband. With her usual aplomb, however, Lady Victoria gets herself engaged to the perfect English gentleman, even before setting foot on British soil. The Rogue Hugo Rothschild, ninth earl of Malfrey, is everything a girl could want in a future husband: he is handsome and worldly, if not rich. Lady Victoria has everything just as she’d like it. That is, if raffish young ship captain Jacob Carstairs would leave well enough alone. Jacob’s meddling is nothing short of exasperating, and Victoria is mystified by his persistence. But when it becomes clear that young Lord Malfrey just might not be all that he’s professed to be, Victoria is forced to admit, for the first time in her life, that she is wrong. Not only about her fiance, but about the reason behind the handsome ship captain’s interference.
