Finding out you were wrong about something important can be a let down. But Poppy is pleased to learn she’s not just a Monday. She’s a Cusper, a weekday lucky enough to have TWO powers. Poppy’s elation is short-lived when she, Ellie, Logan, and Sam return to Power Academy as camp counselors, only to find themselves out of their element and struggling with the new drama teacher and his disaster of a school musical. When some campers go missing, Poppy and her team of weekdays are on the case. Soon, Poppy begins to realize that much like her powers, the seemingly-perfect town of Nova has some flaws, and the origin of her powers is as questionable as Headmistress Clothes-too-tight Larriby’s choice in outfits.If only there were more days in the week!

Review:

So adorable!

As much as I loved Meg Cabot’s The Princess Diaries series, I just might like her From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess ones even more. We still have many of the characters we love from the YA books (Mia! Michael! Grandmere! An older version of Rocky!) but now we’re seeing them through the eyes of Mia’s half-sister, a current seventh grader and future wildlife artist. Add in middle school drama (which yes, is significant when you’re in–or even just work with or live with those who are in–middle school, but let’s face it, is waaaay less angsty than high school drama) and a main character who’s not only dealing with being a newly discovered princess but also has had to move to a different country–her family’s country–and you’ve got a great basis for a series.

In book three, Royal Crush, Olivia’s got a lot going on, as usual. Mia’s about ready to have her twins (and yes, she has them–and no, I’m not telling their gender or names; read it yourself!), there’s a nasty strain of virus ravishing Genovia, her school is all set to compete in the Royal School Winter Games (she wants to stay home and let her new niece and nephew imprint on her like baby ducks, but her plans here might be foiled by factors beyond her control), and she’s not sure why Prince Khalil doesn’t seem quite as friendly as he had over the summer. And isn’t sure if she cares. Because they’re just friends. Or, maybe they’re not. But maybe they are…

Ah, middle school.

Throughout it all, Olivia brings a fresh voice to the world of the Genovian royals and keeps us up to date with what’s going on with the Renaldos. Though this book would work pretty well as a standalone–Olivia keeps us current on most of what we need to know going in to the story–it really will have the most impact if you’ve read the other two. Plus, the characters and writing are so much fun you’re going to want to know the whole story–so go ahead and put them all on your TBR ASAP!
