Author: Meg Cabot
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends / Macmillan
Release Date: May 19th, 2015
Olivia Grace Clarisse Mignonette Harrison is a completely average twelve-year-old: average height, average weight, average brown hair of average length, average brown skin and average hazel eyes. The only things about her that aren't average are her name (too long and princess themed), her ability to draw animals (useful for her future career as a wildlife illustrator), and the fact that she is a half-orphan who has never met her father and is forced to live with her aunt and uncle (who treat her almost like their own kids, so she doesn't want to complain).
Then one completely average day, everything goes wrong: the most popular girl in school, Annabelle Jenkins, threatens to beat her up, the principal gives her a demerit, and she's knocked down at the bus stop...
Until a limo containing Princess Mia Thermopolis of Genovia pulls up to invite her to New York to finally meet her father, who promptly invites her to come live with him, Mia, Grandmère and her two fabulous poodles...
Maybe Olivia Grace Clarisse Mignonette Harrison isn't so average after all!

What would I do if I woke up one day and found out I was a princess?
1. I'd pinch myself to see if this is real. Then I'd have a mini-spaz and fangirl moment.
2. I'd explore my new house (the castle or palace, of course).
3. I'd go on a huge shopping spree and buy shoes!
4. I'd go to a bookstore and buy loads of books.
5. I'd throw a party at the palace and invite my subjects as a meet-and-great.
6. I'd travel on a tour of the country to introduce myself and meet more citizens and learn of their problems and desires.
7. I'd attempt to learn more about taxes and balancing budgets and how to run a country. I'm guessing it might be hard.
8. I'd give money to charities ranging from illness to poverty to education.
