Sweet Sixteen Princess: MTV aka Mia The Victim

We’re continuing season 6 with The Princess Diaries Volume VII 1/2: Sweet Sixteen Princess by Meg Cabot. You can listen to this episode on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you like to listen. As a reminder, some of these links, including our Bookshop.org link, are affiliates.

I’ve been watching Castle and Clare’s been watching Rock of Ages, which lists Tom Cruise in more of a supporting role than a starring one.
