Product Description

Celebrate the 10th anniversary of this Newbery Honor winning, New York Times bestselling book — now with a gorgeous new cover!

Miri lives on a mountain where, for generations, her ancestors have lived a simple life. Then word comes that the king's priests have divined her village the home of the future princess. In a year's time, the prince will choose his bride from among the village girls.

The king's ministers set up an academy on the mountain, and every teenage girl must attend and learn how to become a princess. Soon Miri finds herself confronted with a harsh academy mistress, bitter competition among the girls, and her own conflicting desires. Winning the contest could give her everything she ever wanted — but it would mean leaving her home and family behind.

Packaged with a fresh cover, this timelessly charming, award-winning story from best-selling author Shannon Hale is sure to enchant a whole new generation of readers.

Sweet Book
By , Submitted on 2016-06-01

The Princess Academy is a sweet book that is perfect for "tweens" and young adult girls. From hearing others talk about this book I expected some teenage angst and some conflict between the girls in the academy but I was surprised that there was a mix of fantasy, adventure, and bravery that was endearing to me. This is a book I would recommend.
