This really is a good book. The protagonist Miri's yearning is to work in the quarry like everyone else on Mount Eskel, but she is too small to fulfill her dream. One day, a delegate from the royal court comes to Eskel saying that all the girls on the mountain must attend the academy to learn how to become a princess, and at the end of their stay at the school, the prince will choose a bride. Miri, of course, must go to the school, and there the girls face bitter treatment from Tutor Olana. But Miri finds herself in the reading and writing aspects of school and befriends some girls while making enemies with others. Who will the prince choose? What are Miri's friends hiding? Read this book to find out!

    Couldn't read it.

    I really couldn't get into this book. I tried reading it about four times and I didn't get hooked, and usually I like this kind of book.
