This production includes two books in The Princess Diaries series. In PROJECT PRINCESS, Mia Thermopolis, the intrepid princess of Genovia, spends her spring break in West Virginia building houses for the poor and squeezing in time to lock lips with her boyfriend, Michael. In PRINCESS IN PINK, Mia obsesses about persuading Michael to take her to the senior prom. Clea Lewis's youthful voice and buoyant, expressive narration sound wonderfully spontaneous. The accent she creates for Mia's grandmother, a native French speaker, sounds more like a teen mocking a French accent than a genuine accent, but it's a small indiscretion. Listeners of all ages will laugh and groan in sympathy as Mia tries to navigate life as a teenaged royal. A.F. 2005 ALA Notable Recording © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
