Meg-A Readers Week! Day 3: Princess in Pink (Princess Diaries #5) by Meg Cabot (Giveaway!)

Day 3 Part of Meg-A Readers Week!! :)

Princess In Pink, #5 in The Princess Diaries Series!! :)

From Goodreads:

Princess Mia is dreaming about the prom - and contending with a hotel workers' strike - in the fifth, supremely hilarious episode of Meg Cabot's Princess Diaries. This time, Mia's in the pink about the upcoming Albert Einstein H.S. prom, and she's crossing her fingers that Michael will ask her to go. (They're in love, so why wouldn't he ask her, right?) But during Seven Minutes in Heaven at her b-day party, Mia learns that Michael is not the prom-going type. Good grief, what's a princess to do? 

To make matters worse, Grandmere has gotten a busboy fired due to a mishap with her pooch, Rommel, at a swanky restaurant, so when all of the city's busboys go on strike, it causes a chain of events that result in Grandmere crashing at Mia's mom's place, her pal Lilly Moscovitz picking up a picket sign, and the prom being brought to a screeching halt. 

Thankfully, staunch yet boy-wise Grandmere has a plan to change Michael's mind and put everything back on track, making Mia the happiest "prom princess" on this side of the Atlantic - and readers more starry-eyed than Molly Ringwald in her prettiest pink frock. 

Following up the brief Volume IV and a Half and introducing a new addition to Mia's family, this knee-slapping fifth volume makes the series glitter brighter than ever, placing yet another jewel in Cabot's crown.

My thoughts:

It's probably the one thing every girl in high school looks forward to the most.

It's an exciting night of dressing up, getting your nails and toes done, your hair done, finding the most gorgeous dress! And of course, the dancing! A night of dancing with your cute prom date!

It's the one thing Mia wants to do with the love of her life, Michael.  But he doesn't want to go! He believes it's a lame dance and that only popular people like Josh Richter go.

While, to be honest, I have to agree with Michael on this one (I went to my junior prom, spent a lot of my hard earned money on it, and didn't even enjoy myself. So for my senior prom I ended up skipping it, because I didn't see the point. But that was just my personal experience! I didn't really have a close friends group in high school, so I didn't have that connection with anyone to go out to this "once in a life time experience" and have the time of my life.

Mia on the other hand has these amazing supportive friends, a loving boyfriend, and a gorgeous dress to go with it!

Now if only Michael would take her!!!

Will Mia be able to persuade her boyfriend to go? Or will she be stuck at home watching the news on the strike happening in the city, caused by none other than her grandmother and her hairless poodle?

Find out!

Overall rating:

This is a great continuation of The Princess Diariea series! Mia is growing up, and while she's a little immature at times, she's learning.  Mia's thoughts were mine in high school.  Yes, I was a bit childish, but I wouldn't have had it any other way.  It's called growing up, and as each book goes on, Mia is getting older and learning life lessons that most teenagers learn every day!

Definitely check it out!  I HIGHLY recommend this series to every teenage girl!  They are the perfect read for ages 12-16! :)
