Princess In Waiting and Princess In Pink (Books 4&5)

"Never before has the world seen such a princess.
Nor have her own subjects, for that matter. Mia's royal introduction to Genovia has mixed results: while her fashion sense is widely applauded, her position on the installation of public parking meters is met with resistance.
But the politics of bureaucracy are nothing next to Mia's real troubles. Between canceled dates with her long—sought—after royal consort, a second semester of the dreaded Algebra, more princess lessons from Grandmère as a result of the Genovian parking—meter thing, and the inability to stop gnawing on her fingernails, isn't there anything Mia is good at besides inheriting an unwanted royal title?"
"Things are looking up for Mia: She's the newest staffer on the school paper, and her miraculous completion of freshman Algebra is just around the corner. Plus she's about to get a new baby brother or sister. Could things possibly get any better?
But in her heart of hearts, Mia has one wish: an evening spent with Michael in a tux and a corsage on her wrist -- in other words, the PROM. Michael, however, does not seem to share the dream that is the prom. Worse still, a service workers strike (with Grandmere and Lilly at the heart of it and on opposite sides) threatens the very existence of this year's prom.
Will the strike end in time? Can Michael be dissuaded from his anti-prom views? Most importantly, will Mia get to wear her pink prom dress?"

As this series progresses I am enjoying it more and more. Of course, I still have some issues with it, like I feel Mia should be a little older... Only a year or so, although her age explains her certain immature reactions. The only character here that I really don't like is Lily. She is a HORRIBLE friend and really Mia should get rid of her. I don't like Grandmere much which disappoints me since, I keep imagining her as Julie Andrews a la movie version of the book.  Michael and Mia's relationship is adorable as it progresses and the story lines were decent enough. I like the series now, I just don't think it is Cabot's best.
