Book 12: Princess in the Spotlight by Meg Cabot

Volume two of the Princess Diaries series picks up the day after the last one ended, with Mia in for another life-changing surprise—she is about to become an older sister.  Her mom and Mr. Gianni have been very irresponsible and now Mia has to quickly get comfortable with the idea that her algebra teacher is going to be a part of her life forever.

In addition to that, Grandmere has arranged a television interview with one of the most popular reporters to prepare Mia for her formal introduction to the Genovian people.  Obviously, this will not end well for someone as awkward as Mia.  The only bright side in her life right now comes from her secret admirer, who Mia desperately hopes is Michael Moscovitz, Lilly’s brother and her crush since grade school (she claims the Josh Richter crush was just a phase). Despite her efforts to discover the truth, her admirer refused to show himself until he damn well feels like it.

There is the normal amount of craziness in this volume: Mia is neurotic, Grandmere is entitled, Lily acts superior, Tina is obsessed, etc.  But it’s fun and goofy, overall a nice distraction and an extremely quick read.
