51uDRqrjYUL._AA160_

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.

Comments: I am a big fan of Shannon Hale, she is a fabulous author with a mind for what is important in life. I love how clean, quick, and delightful her work is. This book was the first of her's I read and it launched me into a Shannon Hale fever. Now I have them for my little girl and she is loving them too. I would say this is middle grade to teen-ish age 11-15 maybe. But I guess Princess's of all ages enjoy it. I did.
