Here is Claire's winning answer:
I remember the first time that I read ‘The Princess Diaries’. I’d seen the film of the book, like most young children and I fell love Mia and Fat Louie right away, I still laugh at my feeble attempts at drawing Fat Louie in my notebooks! Mia was a role model to me; she was young, bright and way out of her depth and by the time I started reading the series I was 11 years old and about to go into Secondary School. My Dad used to go away with work a lot and actually bought me the first book, which I devoured. Mia seemed more real on paper, she wasn’t just a film character.. she was letting me read her diary! I quickly saved up my small amount of pocket money up to buy the other books and asked for some of them for my birthday until I’d read them all. I truly do believe that these books were a big part of my childhood, Mia was a big sister that I never got.. she was cool, calm and collected; yet she did get scared at times and as a young teenager it made me feel okay to be afraid and scared of growing up. Fat Louie was the pet cat that I could never had.. I recall that I once changed my MSN name to Fat Louie, just to be like Mia! I still love those books and they still provide so much comfort to me.
