Description
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.
