I have begun a reread of the entire series, complete with fill ins. I am waiting for my copy of Juniors to arrive. I know this is set during the same term as Princess, so which should I read first?

I haven't read Juniors, but I reckon you'd be better off reading Princess first, as I suspect that it - even subconsciously - assumes you know the things that happen in that, or possibly even need to know what is going on in the 'real' world of EBD at the time, against which the events of Juniors is set.

Definitely read Princess first. Although Juniors is fine as a stand-alone fill-in, there are lots of cross-references which you will appreciate more if you have re-read Princess first. IMHO of course.

When my copy of Juniors came, I read it, then re-read Princess and after I re-read Juniors. You could do that! :D

Juniors was written so that it could be read and enjoyed by someone who had never read Princess, so it doesn't matter from that perspective.
