Well, after the cliffhanger that Princess on the Brink left with Mia and Michael kind of sort of over, Mia accidentally kissing J.P. and Lilly and Mia’s friendship pretty much toasted, how could book 9 get any worse? Well…actually, it can. Mia finally hears back from Michael and he tells her that maybe they should just be friends. This sends her into a hole of depression. She doesn’t get out of bed for four days, not until her father has Lars drag her out of it and to a therapist’s office, where he diagnoses her as depressed. Like her eating meat again wasn’t a big clue? And, oh yes, how could I forget? With Mia’s food binge, she’s gained a few pounds, not only in the stomach area, but in the chest area too.

However that’s not the most shocking revelation that this book has to offer. And before you even think it, no, it’s not that she becomes friends with Lana or J.P. finally confessing his feelings for her either. Which, by the way, I totally called in the last book! Anyway, the biggest revelation is the fact that maybe Mia doesn’t have to be a ruling princess of Genovia, not if what this document from the 1600s says is true.

Okay, this book was better than the last one, but still… I don’t know. I’m not the biggest fan of Mia’s swirl into depression. Like I get that Michael just broke up with her because of the stupid things she did, but, honestly girl. It’s not the end of the world. Besides the time apart will do you good! I mean, look, you two are already back on the path of friendship, which is good. And look at you and Lana being friends, now that’s some real progress there.

Final Rating: 4 out of 5 stars. Okay, so now Mia and J.P. are together and Mia’s dad hates her because of her announcement about this document from the 1600s. What else could possibly happen? I guess I’ll have to read book 10 tomorrow to find out…

Bookshelf worthy? I don’t even know what to call this color? Florescent red?
