Book Review: final installment in the Princess Diaries series

Forever Princess (The Princess Diaries, #10)Forever Princess by Meg Cabot

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

So. I love Mg Cabot, I do. But. This is the first series of hers where I am disappointed. I get that teenagers deal with whether or not to have sex, but I also strongly believe it is wrong to encourage them to have sex and to make it seem perfectly okay. So there was that element that I didn't like to all of these books, especially this one.This one in particular frustrated me because little girls read these books, especially after they came out with the movies and she had blurbs from a romance novel Mia 'wrote' that had a lot of detail from what I could tell in skimming them. The one good thing was: she had the sections italicized and on their own so you knew which parts not to read if you don't want to read that sort of thing.Other than that, and/or in spite of that I really did enjoy this book. It was fun and it was wrapped up very nicely and not too conveniently. Mia is whiny but comes into her own and starts dealing with her own problems which is a nice way to end.All in all: disappointed in some of the content but most of that was easy to avoid and it was a fun book. I wouldn't read the series again and I wouldn't let my young girls read it either, but I don't feel like I totally wasted my time.
