I think Meg Cabot is stronger when writing for an adult audience. Even though her characters can be naive and a bit clueless, I don’t ever want to beat them over the head with a stick like some of her YA characters (Hi Mia Thermopolis from the last four or so Princess Diaries Books). Lizzie’s prince never stood a chance, which was a bit obvious given his complete lack of screen time, but the journey to the end was a fun romp and I loved Lizzie’s success at her work. Now if only Meg would write another one in the All-American Girl/Ready or Not series, which are the ones I love the best.
