Title: Princess in Training.
Author: Meg Cabot.
Genre: Fiction, teen, romance, humour.
Publication Date: April 2005.
Summary: Mia is nominated by her power-mad best friend, Lilly, for student body president. This is not how Mia imagined kicking off her sophomore year, but as usual, she has bigger problems to worry about, like Geometry. And now that Mia's one true love, Michael, is uptown at college, what's the point of even getting up for school in the morning? But the last straw is what Lana whispers to her on the lunch line about what college boys expect of their girlfriends. Really, it's almost more than a princess in training can bear!
My rating: 7/10.
♥ "And this," she said, all dramatically, "is all that remains of St. Amelie today."
I looked at the thing inside the locket.
"Um," I said.
"It's all right, Amelia," Grandmère said, encouragingly. "You may touch it. It's a right reserved only for the Renaldo royal family. You may as well take advantage of it."
I reached out an touched whatever was inside the locket. It looked - and felt - like a rock.
"Um," I said again. "Thanks, Grandmère. But I don't know how my touching some saint's rock is supposed to make me feel better."
"That is no rock, Amelia," Grandmère said, scornfully. "That's St. Amelie's petrified heart!"
THIS is what Grandmère busted in here to show me? THIS is how she tries to cheer me up? By having me pick up some dead saint's petrified HEART????
WHY CAN'T I HAVE A NORMAL GRANDMA WHO TAKES ME TO SERENDIPITY FOR FROZEN HOT CHOCOLATE WHEN I'M DOWN, instead of making me fondle petrified body parts??????
