Royal Wedding by Meg Cabot

Princess Mia is back in Meg Cabot's newest book Royal Wedding. Like the generation of girls who grew up reading The Princess Diaries books, Mia is all grown up. The original cast including Michael, Lilly, Tina, and Grandmère are back and witty as ever. Mia is still struggling with everything that comes along with being the princess of Genovia including dealing with hounding paparazzi who nearly keep her trapped in the Genovian consulate. That's until Mia's longtime boyfriend Michael plans a surprise trip to the Bahamas. While on their own private island, Michael gets down on one knee and proposes to Mia. As if a royal wedding isn't enough for Mia, there are more surprises in store.

The Royal Wedding is sure to resonate with readers who grew up reading The Princess Diaries books. A generation of teen girls grew up along with Princess Mia, and now we're all feeling the same way she is--faced with relationships, first jobs, and figuring out how to be an adult.  Written in her usual way, Meg Cabot's Royal Wedding pokes fun at current pop culture, gets you laughing, and makes you want to re-read all of The Princess Diaries books.
