A Newbery Honor Winner
A New York Times Bestseller
In this first book in New York Times bestselling, Newbery Honor-winning author Shannon Hale's Princess Academy series, Miri finds herself a sudden participant in a contest to find the next princess of the realm.
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.

Very PG and the story leads you to believe there's a different outcome. Which I honestly would of preferred.
I can suggest it to people who are not looking for an intense read, I personally found it hard concentrate on the storyline, it goes on ALOT. But it is a very sweet story.
Hope this helps.
It kept me hanging on the edge of my seat
I didn't want it to end
I would recommend this to ages 8-19
