Greatest News Ever!
Author Meg Cabot has just announced that Amelia Mignonette Thermopolis Grimaldi Renaldo, Princess of Genovia a.k.a. Princess Mia is coming back to the book shelves and the JJJ Book Club can not contain our excitement!
“2015 is a special year for me. It marks the 15th Anniversary of the publication of ‘The Princess Diaries, Volume 1′, and ‘Shadowland, Book 1′ in The Mediator series. To celebrate this, in Summer 2015, I’ll be releasing three new books: two in the Princess Diaries series, and one in the Mediator series!” Ms. Cabot wrote on her official website.
She continued, “Now Mia has a younger mixed race sibling, like me (only mine is adopted. And a boy. And I highly doubt Mia will fight with her sibling over the TV remote like I used to do with mine. Also, Mia is more than ten years older than Olivia Grace, so they don’t really watch the same TV shows. And in the palace in Genovia, there’s more than one television). I’ve been planning this book for some time. I got the inspiration a few years ago from actual goings-on in the royal family of Monaco (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, you need to brush up on your royal family gossip). Of course there are major differences between Genovia and Monaco. For one thing, all children born to the heir to the throne of Genovia are in line to inherit. This is not so in Monaco. And for another thing, Michael Moscovitz is not Grace Kelly.”
In “Royal Wedding”, which will hit shelves next year, Princess Mia’s planned nuptials to longtime love Michael Moscovitz are in jeopardy when the paparazzi uncover a startling secret: Mia has a long lost younger sister. Now a scheming politico is using the royal scandal to force Mia’s father from the throne, leaving Genovia without a monarch . . . unless Mia can prove to everyone—especially herself—that she’s finally fit to rule.
ARE YOU EXCITED for a new “Princess Diaries” book?
