      The Princess Academy is an amazing book by Shannon Hale that received an Newberry Honer Award. It was well earned. This book was riveting, exciting, and fun! Once I started reading it I couldn’t put it down.

      The main character is a girl named Miri, after a tiny mountain flower, because she is too small to go to work in the quarry with her older sister and is 14 years old.


      She lives on a mountain where the only riches are found in Linder, a rock found in the earth.

      The lowlanders who think they are better then them were told that they would find the new princess in these mountains. So they take all the girls twelve to seventeen, including Miri despite the fact that they had a hard time believing she was as old as she is, to an academy ...


      • where they learn to be princesses.

        They leave her sister behind because although she is seventeen she is a few months older than the prince. They all undergo a year of training so that one of them will be chosen to marry the prince.

        This is by far one of my favorite books. It is 314 pages long.

        The Genre of this book is fantasy and It is a relatively easy

        read, and it will make you laugh, cry, and smile. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

        It is a bit slow in the first chapter or two, but then picks up the pace. There is amazing character development in even the smallest characters.

        It is very descriptive and kid-safe. Great for all ages and absolutely deserving of the Newberry Honer.

        I suggest reading this book as soon as you can!
