With Ginger’s long black hair cascading over her shoulders against her porcelain pale skin and her sparkling green eyes brightening her face, the combination made her a drop dead gorgeous woman. Ginger knew she was beautiful at a petite size of 5’2”, but with round and perky size ´´C” cups, her figure was small, but very sexy. She looked in the mirror and put on the lipstick that Ryan had bought her the day before. Ginger had never worn pink lipstick before; it was always the sexy slutty red lipstick that looked good against her skin. But, Ryan, her boyfriend wanted her to wear pink lipstick for him tonight. Tonight was their one year anniversary and he had told her that he had a surprise for her. Ginger was very excited. Ryan had been talking lately a lot about taking their relationship to the next level. Was he going to propose to her? She wondered. Ginger pouted her lips out and pulled off the top of the pink lipstick off. It was a light pink in color with a little shimmer. She slowly applied the pink lipstick to the outline of her lips, then filled in her lips. Ginger had full lips and the pink lipstick made them look even fuller and pouty. When she was finished, her eyes looked even greener than before and her skin was even paler. Ginger actually liked how the pink lipstick looked on her. She then went over to her closet and pulled out the tight fitting pink dress Ryan had bought for her to wear out tonight. She was never used to the color pink. She usually wore black or red clothing. Pink was something new to her. She took the short pink mini dress off the hanger and unzipped it. Ginger already had on pink thigh high stockings attached to a pink garter that matched her pink lace panties with a pink lace bra. All bought for her by Ryan. She slipped the dress on. It was very tight and form fitting. The dress pushed her breasts into a nice cleavage and hugged her small waist and accentuated her round little ass. ‘D 1. Language: English. Narrator: Candy Kross.

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? Also, as a precursor to Princess in Pink, this audiobook includes Project Princess: The Princess Diaries, Volume 4 and 1/2. Hammer in hand, Princess Mia embarks on an epic adventure for one so admittedly unhandy: along with her cohorts from school, she´s off to build houses for the less fortunate. It doesn´t take Mia long to realize that helping others (while an unimpeachably noble pastime) is very hard work. Will her giving spirit prevail? Will the house collapse due to royally clumsy construction? And most importantly, will Michael stop working long enough to kiss her? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Clea Lewis.
