After loving the first three, barfing at the fourth and swearing off this series, I decided to pick it up when Mia is a little older and less whiny. Luckily, Cabot delivers once again in the Eight book of the series! I zipped through this in a day or so and loved the cliff-hanger ending. This book has so many of the great elements from the first few: a simple, charming, predictable plot . So predictable at times that you are just waiting for Mia to have that a-ha moment!
My favorite character is still Tina. She's absolutely loveable. And I also love the funny titles and stories Cabot comes up with for the romance novels that she reads. Boris is a close 2nd and I still am not crazy about Lilly. Even though I skipped 4 1/2 books in the series, the characters remained the same.
All in all, I give Princess on the Brink 3 out of 4 stars. I recommend it for fans of the Princess Diaries series, YA Fiction written like a diary and Meg Cabot's works.
