Project Princess by Meg Cabot
(Started: August 23, 2010; Finished: August 23, 2010)

What on earth is that princess up to now? 
Most princesses would prefer to spend their spring breaks in Gstaad, or some other equally unpronounceable European hot spot. 
Not this one, though. Hammer in hand, Princess Mia embarks on an epic adventure for one so admittedly unhandy: along with her cohorts from school, she's off to build houses for the less fortunate. It doesn't take Mia long to realize that helping others—while an unimpeachably noble pastime—is very hard work. Will her giving spirit prevail? Will the house collapse due to royally clumsy construction? And most importantly, will Michael stop working long enough to kiss her? (From Shelfari)
Review: 4 stars
It was a very short read. This is about Princess Mia doing something else for a change and that is by taking part in a House-making project. Actually, I can really relate to what she have felt--feeling icky and sweaty after all that work plus no nice bedrooms and bathrooms. I would also feel like dying if I were in her shoes. But like her, I will tell myself to get used to it. I guess the moral of this book is that we will learn how to appreciate all the things we have when we experienced living a life of someone else's (though Princess Mia didn't really do that but she saw what was in that place).

Sound snippet:
Hold on by B*Witched
Be strong, face what you're afraid of
Come on, show 'em what you're made of
I know it's hard when your hope is gone
But you gotta keep holding on
