Read-a-thon book #4
I liked this story, but I did find it took me quite a while to adjust to a few of the character and plot differences from the book to movie. I’m not even sure whether I would actually say “The book is better” in this case because I like the Disney version a lot! I suppose just like watching “Ella Enchanted” and then reading the book, I would have to separate the two and say each version has its own merits.
I’ll be reading the rest of the series this summer (or as many as my library has available) because I’m a big fan of Cabot’s writing and I want to see what happens in the original Mia’s life.
Mia Thermopolis is pretty sure there’s nothing worse than being a five-foot-nine, flat-chested freshman, who also happens to be flunking Algebra.
Is she ever in for a surprise.
First Mom announces that she’s dating Mia’s Algebra teacher. Then Dad has to go and reveal that he is the crown prince of Genovia. And guess who still doesn’t have a date for the Cultural Diversity Dance?
