"The most compelling, believable, poignant love story I have read in many a year. Shannon Hale is already, after only a few books, one of our best writers of fantasy. She is also one of those rare storytellers who can bring a jaded old reviewer like me to well-earned tears." —Orson Scott Card, New York Times bestselling author
"Shannon Hale writes deft, lyrical, wonderful fantasy." —Holly Black, author of The Spiderwick Chronicles and Tithe
"When it comes to contemporary classics, Shannon Hale has the makings of someone whose books will be read and reread for decades to come." —The 2006 Newbery Committee
"Princess Academy is the strong, well-written story of one girl's determination to show that even a small mountain flower can be as valuable as a gold crown."
"[A] magical read!" —Discovery Girls
"An unalloyed joy." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
" "This is not a fluffy, predictable fairy tale . . . Instead, Hale weaves an intricate, multilayered story about families, relationships, education, and the place we call home."
—School Library Journal, starred review
