Booktalk: So my mom tells me she wants me to write down my feelings in this book, since, she says I obviously don’t feel I can talk about them with her. So here goes….

I'm so freaked out I can barely write. But I have to get this down exactly the way it happened. Otherwise, when I wake up tomorrow I might think it was just a nightmare. But it wasn't a nightmare. It was REAL!

I just found out my Dad is the Prince of Genovia. I think that I could deal with that, but then he kept asking me if I really understood what he was telling me. I guessed a few things. Dad could tell that he had me stumped. So then he dropped the bombshell on me. "You are not Mia Thermopolis anymore, honey." I raised my head and said, "I'm not, then who am I?" He then went on to say," You're Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo, Princess of Genovia!"


Yeah!! Right!!

So now my book has become The Princess Diaries.
