The eighth book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Princess Diaries series by Meg Cabot.

At last, Mia is a junior. An upperclassperson. So why is it that everything is going so terribly wrong? What is she doing in Intro to Creative Writing? When she has made it through Algebra and Geometry, why must she be faced with Precalculus? All this is nothing compared to the news Michael springs on her, however. Her beloved boyfriend could be leaving for Japan for a year—or more! Precalc has nothing on preparing for the worst separation ever!

Turns out there is one way she might convince Michael to stay. But will she? Or won't she? No matter what, Mia seems headed for disaster.

Princess on the Brink is the eighth book in the beloved, bestselling series that inspired the feature film starring Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews. Beautifully repackaged in paperback, this title will appeal to new readers as well as fans looking to update their collection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Series Still Delivers I'll confess right now that I love Meg Cabot. She is fun and fresh and funny and I enjoy everything she does. The Princess Diaries has been kicking around for a lot of years and people aren't waiting on the edge of their seats for the new one anymore and that is a shame because it is still a great series. The first book, The Princess Diaries was faithfully adapted into the movie of the same name. However, the second movie was nothing like any of the books - and in the books Mia is still in high school. Every book has been a semester or less in the life of Mia, Princess of Geneovia. In this book Mia has just started junior year and the main focus of her life is still her boyfirend MIchael. The tension from the earlier books remains - Michael, who is now in college - would like sex and Mia is not ready. They negotiated Michael talking about it only every 3 months. But is he so tired of cold showers that he would move to Japan? This is a great series and this book has a lot of laughs and freak outs by Mia. The ending is shocking and you want to pick up the next one right away - luckily it is out already. It has slowly gotten a little bit more sexual content as each book goes on - but the first ones are definitely okay for junior high, and even this book I would only put at 14 or 15 years old.
