The Mary Sue Exclusive Cover Reveal: Meg Cabot’s New Princess Diaries-Universe Book, From the Diaries of a Middle School Princess

Because we know you missed Genovia, admit it.

Amazing news for you citizens of Genovia: Meg Cabot is releasing all-new books set in the world of The Princess Diaries, and The Diaries of a Middle School Princess features a new royal (and new amazing awkwardness, I am certain).

In honor of the 15th anniversary of The Princess Diaries (haha, I’m old), Cabot is releasing two new books in the Genovia-inclusive universe. We can look forward to an adult novel (!), focusing on Mia’s wedding plans and a potential usurper to the Genovian throne; as well as The Diaries of a Middle School Princess. Here’s what you can expect from this one!

The original Princess Diaries series sold over 5 million copies in the US (15 million worldwide), spent 82 weeks on the USA Today bestsellers list, and inspired two beloved films.

Olivia Grace Clarisse Harrison has always known she was different. Brought up by her aunt’s family in New Jersey, book-and-music-loving Olivia feels out of place in their life of high fashion and fancy cars. But she never could have imagined how out of place she really was until Mia Thermopolis, Princess of Genovia, pops into her school and announces that Olivia is her long-lost sister. Olivia is a princess. A dream come true, right? But princesses have problems too.

I know this book is aimed at middle grade readers, but honestly I read every single book in the original Princess Diaries series, despite the fact that the last book didn’t come out until I was twenty-one. There’s no doubt in my mind that I’ll be picking up The Diaries of a Middle School Princess, just to catch up with Mia Thermopolis and see how she’s doing after all these years. And Genovia, too, of course.
