This shouldn't be relegated to "girls only". I hope the boys read it too.

I'm not sure why this entered my radar, as I am not a middle grade girl, nor even a girl at all, nor do I care for any, but I'm glad it did. It's a surprisingly compelling novel. Here we find girls learning to be princesses not just in dainty etiquette ways, but also in those more important crafts of economics and diplomacy. But being from the middle of nowhere, they've actually had no education at all, and we start from the ground up: teaching teenagers to read.

The main character is a strong girl - mentally, not physically, leading to some insecurity she wrestles through - who really blossoms over the course of her year of education. She learns to apply what the girls are learning in practical ways, making their lives better and that of the entire village. She's not perfect, and grows over the course of the book, but her heart is in the right place, and she'd provide an excellent role model. ( )

Still among my favorite books of all time. Miri and her world are written with such life and warmth that this was just as enchanting to read as it was 10 years ago. ( )

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. Sometimes the word “princess” will turn me off, but this is a story of courage and young women working together to overcome obstacles. The characters were rich and appealing. ( )

This book is neither precious nor girly, as the title and cover seem to imply. At the titular Princess Academy, the girls of a remote mountain village mainly learn how to read and how to act like ladies. They also learn history, commerce and,incidentally, they discover a strange magical ability that all mountain people have. There's a lot of action (the academy is stormed by bandits!) and drama (who will be chosen as the princess?) and a good lesson in how knowledge is power. The lead character, Miri, is at times an outcast, a hero, ostracized and loved. There are two sweet little romance subplots, too.

I'm excited to read the sequel when it comes out this summer! ( )

It took me a while to read this book, despite liking everything else by Shannon Hale I've read. The premise seemed a bit hokey to me, and I was a bit skeptical of Hale being able to pull it off.

I was wrong. This is a really fun read and the premise is unique and interesting. I enjoyed it enough that I immediately picked up the next book. ( )

Hale weaves an intricate, multilayered story about families, relationships, education, and the place we call home.

Unfortunately, Hale's lighthearted premise and underlying romantic plot bog down in overlong passages about commerce and class, a surprise hostage situation and the specifics of '"quarry-speech."
tilføjet af Katya0133 | RedigerPublishers Weekly (Aug 8, 2005)
 
There are many pleasures to this satisfying tale: a precise lyricism to the language ... and a rhythm to the story that takes its tropes from many places, but its heart from ours.
tilføjet af Katya0133 | RedigerKirkus Reviews (Jul 15, 2005)
 
Hale nicely interweaves feminist sensibilities in this quest-for-a-prince-charming, historical-fantasy tale.

Miri yearns to prove herself useful to her widowed father by working in the village quarry, but, he forbids this, thus cutting his daughter off from the bond of the villagers who earn their living carving stone on Mount Eskel. In this unusual blend of coming-of-age, adventure, fantasy, and fairy tale story Shannon Hale gives us a strong girl persona, wicked “outlaw outsiders,” corrupt business dealings, strict “princess trainers,” and a prince in need of a proper princess. Miri proves her worth to her father, the village, the head of the Academy itself, and to the fellow worthy of this quick-witted, hard-working “almost a woman.” The crux of the tale is the “quarry speech” used by the stone workers to communicate over the noise and confusion of the quarry, which is adapted by Miri in her desperation to save the village girls after they have been kidnapped by the outlaws. As usual, Hale ties her characters to the land in which they have been born and to Nature itself. This is an engaging, plain “good read” that just happens to be filled with life lessons about friendship, acceptance, courage, endurance, and finding the right path. Guard against dismissing this fantasy as more of the same old genre; there are a lot of fresh ideas and solid truths to be had in this finely-crafted novel. 2005, Bloomsbury, $16.95. Ages 12 up.
