A good read, but it does go into the topic of wanting to get to second base a bit too often.

This book is the first I've ever seen with a suggested rating of "12 and over"--and rightly so. I bought the entire series after watching the Disney movie and reading the first book, which was WHOLESOME in comparison to the following books in this series. I'm happy I took the time to read them myself before passing them on to children. Personally, I would like to warn those who would be offended to learn that through this series your child will be influenced by;

1.) A feminist and promiscuous mother that sleeps with her daughter's Algebra teacher.
2.) Mother that also has unprotected sex with said teacher and concieves his baby out of wedlock.
3.) Mother that encourages her daughter to make an appointment with her gyno and have "safe sex".
4.) Mother that relates her own first sexual encounter to her daughter at 15!
5.) A college boyfriend that tells the main character that he will not wait forever for her to "Do It".
6.) Next door neighbor named Ronnie who just underwent a sex change from a man to a woman.
7.) Grandmere who constantly drinks and smokes and implies that her grandaughter should put out.
8.) A passel of teenage freinds with hormones raging amuck and ample details and scenerios of "frenching", groping, "making out" etc...
9.) Main character later finds out that her boyfriend has already had sex with another schoolmate and then feels pressured to do so as well.

I didn't read the last two books in this series because I was completely disgusted by how Meg Cabot hit the vein of what sells to teens; S-E-X. She's making a mint off of those parents who don't really care what kind of trash molds their children.
And, yes. I am aware that this is the reality of the world we live in. I, as a parent, chose to make sure that it is NOT THE REALITY OF MY CHILDREN, however.

For teens. If you enjoyed any of the other princess diaries books, you will love this one. Great for a younger reader, too.

Grade 5-9âIn volume five in the series, Princess Mia has a new problem to overcomeâhow to get to the senior prom when boyfriend Michael thinks it's the height of lame. More drama erupts when Grandmère brings her poodle to Mia's 15th birthday party at a fancy restaurant. He gets loose, a busboy from Nepal gets fired, Mia's best friend starts a protest on his behalf, and the subsequent restaurant workers' strike shuts down the entire food and hotel industry, including the prom venue. Grandmère refuses to take responsibility, but finds an alternate prom site, and Mia manages to get the gig for Michael's new band. Thus, she gets to go to the prom. Fans will eat up this newest installment in the life of a teenage royal, and they won't mind Mia's whining and often shallow insistence on the importance of the dance over a fight that might end her long-standing friendship with her best friend, and Grandmère's immature behavior. Mia is an engaging if sometimes not very memorable heroine, and the conversational tone of the diary entries makes this a fun, lighthearted read.
