Princess on the Brink

Goodreads Says:    At last, Mia is a junior. An upperclassperson. Free of her responsibilities as student body president. So why is it that everything is going so terribly wrong? What is she doing in Intro to Creative Writing? When she has made it through Algebra and Geometry, why must she be faced with Precalculus? And for the love of all that is Genovian, why has Lilly nominated her for school prez again? All this is nothing compared to the news Michael springs on her, however. On top of all the mathematical strife, her beloved boyfriend is leaving for Japan for a year. Precalc has nothing on preparing for the worst separation ever

Turns out there is one way she might convince Michael to stay. But will she? Or won't she? No matter what, Mia seems headed for disaster.

My Thoughts:

-    I feel like Mia was a Freshman forever, and she is going through these other grades a lot faster, thank goodness. Let's move the story along!

-    I'm NOT okay with a 19 year old guy pressuring a barely 16 year old into having sex with him! What the heck!? Michael lost MAJOR points in this book.

-    Mia (who doesn't have a lot of points to begin with) also lost major points. She thinks she can manipulate Michael into staying by having sex!?!? This series is sending all the wrong messages to teens.

-    Mia is SO oblivious to J.P.! OMG! She is such a clueless idiot!

-    The screenplay that Mia is writing feels like filler, and it is weird and isn't needed.

-    I feel bad about the Mia and Michael thing, but they both need to grow up a bit.

-    I am so frustrated with this series! Why am I still reading this!?

  1. I love your last thought! I've been wondering the same thing. Maybe the mindless fluff is what you need.

  2. Haha Yes, why on earth am I still reading this?! On book 10 now though, only 3 left to go, might as well finish it.
