Princess Mia by Meg Cabot
(Started: September 05, 2010; Finished: September 06, 2010)

Summary/Description:
A Princess on her own . . . 
Mia has been invited to speak at a gala for Domina Rei, an elite society of powerful businesswomen. But what could she possibly have to say? Michael has broken up with her, her bff Lilly won't speak to her, and her parents are forcing her to see a therapist. Even J.P.'s efforts to cheer Mia up (he's being really sweet ) aren't helping. 
Just when things couldn't get worse, Mia discovers a long--forgotten diary of a teenage princess of Genovia. It could be just the inspiration Mia needs to write her speech--but what it reveals might change everything. (From Goodreads)
Review: 5 stars
I was sort of disappointed when I finished reading it because I do not want JP and Mia to be a couple. I have a bad feeling about it. I still want the Mia-Michael tandem. But despite that, I think what I love about is the progress or change in Mia's character. I guess she is starting to reach her 'self-actualization' by doing the right thing, by doing what she wants, and by doing something in response to what had happened to her. I like the fact that she is embracing her fears by turning them into her strengths. I also like how she promotes women and youth empowerment here.

Sound snippets:
Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You) by Kelly Clarkson
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
What doesn't kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn't mean I'm over 'cause you're gone

Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield
Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
