The Princess Diaries: Princess in Waiting Book Review

The Princess Diaries: Princess in Waiting Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

If you were stoked about the Disney movie, The Princess Diaries, then you'll definitely wanna grab a copy of the latest teen romance book in the Princess Diaries series by Meg Cabot.

Author: Meg Cabot

What happens when you find out that your father's a prince, your grandmother's a queen and you are the heir to a far away European throne? If you're anything like Mia Thermopolis, you freak out. It's been a couple of years since you were introduced to Princess Mia, when the first volume of her diary found its way to the big screen. Princess Diaries: Princess in Waiting follows Mia in between the time she finds out she's a princess and the time that she makes her way to Genovia in Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement.


Dealing With Royal DNA

The Princess Diaries: Princess in Waiting finds Mia back in Genovia for her winter break, attending to all of her princessly duties. Since becoming aware of her royal DNA, Mia has grudgingly promised her father to spend her winter and summer breaks in Genovia. This means she has to spend an entire 32 days apart from her one, true love, Michael Moscovitz - what torture!


Grandmother Knows Best

Because Mia is so obsessed with holding onto Michael, she turns to anyone and everyone for advice, including her miserable, old grandmother. Grandm�re Renaldo tells her to let Michael stew a bit - never let him know you're interested or he'll get bored with you. Think it'll work?


The Bottom Line

Whether you've seen The Princess Diaries flick or not, you'll wanna grab your very own copy of The Princess Diaries: Princess in Waiting - especially if you're a fan of novels written in a journal format. It's easier to read and a lot more playful.

    I originally got this story from a source that most people wouldn't exactly call credible , a comedy/politics TV show, but after checking their sources, I believe I have a strong case with decently strong sources. You are incorrect when you said you'd only have to pay for labor and materials, as several other factors come into play. Also, where I said 1000 feet, I very much apologize, more like 1000 miles. It should cost about 10 billion for the concrete panels, and although concrete is cheap, it's not dirt cheap, and 1000 miles of concrete will add up to a pretty good amount. Next it should cost 5-6 billion dollars for steel columns to hold the panels, including labor.  Add another billion for concrete footing and foundations, and that's sixteen billion dollars. But, transport is required to inaccessible areas. It will cost about another 2 billion dollars to build roads that will allow 20 ton trucks to carry materials to the wall. We also need engineering, design, and management, which brings us up to the magic number of 25 billion dollars, on average considering all factors. The Congressional Budget office also says that wall management costs will exceed the original cost to build the wall in as little as seven years. With the Mexico paying for it part, as John Oliver, the host of this show, says, "People don't exactly love it when you make them pay for [expletive] they don't want." The current Mexican treasury secretary states, "Mexico, under no circumstance, is going to pay for the wall that Mr. Trump is proposing." 2 former Mexican presidents that only recently left office also say, in a nutshell, that Mexico will never pay for the wall.

    I'll have to dig into that a little more, I only had about 2 sources to go off of, one of them being a private party. I am aware that scientific or economic articles aren't always correct, so I'll have to fact check this myself before I can properly reply to you.

    I'd say it's a good idea, but I don't think the economist is correct. Firstly, even if he were correct, the price of the wall only comes to about half the annual trade deficit that we have with Mexico. If Mexico is making 58 billion off of us every year, then they have 25 billion to spare to pay for the wall.  But more to the point, I don't think it'll cost that much. What you'll need is money to pay for two things:  1. Materials 2. Labor You need 1.5 billion pounds worth of pre-made concrete slabs installed to create the entire wall. Concrete is ridiculously cheap, and you'd only be out three billion on concrete. Then you need steel connections between each slab, so let's add another five billion for that. Let's also add a billion dollar safe fund, in case some parts of the wall need a little something extra.  That leaves you with eleven billion dollars worth of labor before you get anywhere near the price that this economist came up with. Which is why I think he's very mistaken.

    Before we start this, I have two requests. 1. Be civil to each other, rebuttal other people's statements with facts, not just random insults. I have seen debates where people are just mindlessly bullying each other, and I would hate for this to turn up like that. 2. Don't go against Donald Trump on this topic just because you think he's a racist or something. Focus on the topic at hand, please. So, we've all heard about the infamous wall. However, I have one reason that the wall might not be such a wonderful idea. Donald Trump has said that the wall will be at mimimum 35 feet tall, and again, at minimum,  1000 feet long.  Now, an economist estimated that this will cost 25 billion dollars, including costs to transport supplies, the materials, and labor, along with several other costs. This exceeds what Donald Trump says the wall would cost by 13 to 21 billion dollars. Do you still think the wall is a good idea, and remember the two requests, or no, I'd rather call them rules, I listed about a paragraph ago.
