From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess
by Meg Cabot
Feiwell and Friends, 2015. Fiction. 182 p.
Olivia is average girl going to an ordinary private school.  She lives with her aunt and uncle, but she corresponds with her widowed father regularly.  One day she is accosted by the "popular girl" who claims Olivia is a princess.  That is ridiculous, of course.  How could plain, ordinary, Olivia be the half-sister of one of the most famous princesses alive?

This is a darling new series for younger readers by the writer of the successful Princess Diaries series. Olivia is an appealing character who learns, like her big sister, that being a princess is more than wearing fancy dresses and living in a castle.  The book has several black and white illustrations, some of which are by the author, who, like Olivia, likes to draw animals.  This book is available from the library in print, on CD, as an ebook and e-audiobook download.
