Princess Academy

by Shannon Hale

Fourteen-year-old Miri dreams of working at the quarry like the rest of the villagers, despite her small size. Then a royal decree arrives that changes life in quiet Mount Eskel. The king has decided that all eligible girls will study at an academy to train them in a noble education, and one girl will be chosen as the prince's bride. Can Miri, a mountain girl with dreams as big as her heart, become a princess?
