From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess

Return to the world of Meg Cabot’s bestselling and beloved The Princess Diaries series in From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess&mdashthis time through the illustrated diary of a spunky new heroine: Princess Mia’s long lost half-sister, Olivia!

Olivia Grace Clarisse Mignonette Harrison is a completely average twelve-year-old: average height, average weight, average brown hair of average length, average brown skin and average hazel eyes. The only things about her that aren’t average are her name (too long and princess themed), her ability to draw animals (useful for her future career as a wildlife illustrator), the fact that she is a half-orphan who has never met her father and is forced to live with her aunt and uncle (who treat her almost like their own kids, so she doesn’t want to complain)…and that she’s a long-lost princess of Genovia.

Swept into a world of ponies, weddings, and family troubles, Olivia’s new life is not everything she expected it would be. But one thing is for certain: maybe Olivia Grace Clarisse Mignonette Harrison isn’t so average after all!

Praise for From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess:
“The nation of Genovia gains a new resident in this amusing spin-off. . . . Cabot’s own black and white cartoons further enliven Olivia’s entertaining and candid notebook entries, which will have readers looking forward to her future escapades.” -Publishers Weekly

“Cabot manages to combine wit and lavish details to positive effect. . . . Newcomers to the Cabot magic will be charmed. A sweet fantasy, both funny and highly satisfying.” -Kirkus Reviews

“This entertaining, quickly absorbing read will have readers anticipating the sequel.” –Booklist

“This sweet and sassy spin-off featuring the younger half-sister of Princess Mia Thermopolis . . . will be a perfect fit for Fancy Nancy alumni and readers not quite ready for Cabot’s longer novels.” -School Library Journal
