The rest was history. 1777. Albany, New York.

Is she ever in for a surprise. First Mom announces that she’s dating Mia’s Algebra teacher. Then Dad has to go and reveal that he is the crown prince of Genovia.

I feel it shows how Mia should look like in comparison to the original covers with her orange bob hair thing. This my childhood (OK my early teens) book and it was brilliant! It showed you didn’t have to […]
