SummaryMiri lives on a mountain where, for generations, her ancestors have quarried stone and lived a simple life. Then word comes that the king's priests have divined her small village the home of the future princess. In a year's time, the prince himself will come and choose his bride from among the girls of the village. The king's ministers set up an academy on the mountain, and every teenage girl must attend and learn how to become a princess.

Miri soon finds herself confronted with a harsh academy mistress, bitter competition among the girls, and her own conflicting desires to be chosen and win the heart of her childhood best friend. But when bandits seek out the academy to kidnap the future princess, Miri must rally the girls together and use a power unique to the mountain dwellers to save herself and her classmates.

The Book In 3 Words: Refreshing, Cute, Enjoyable

Rad Review: This book is one of my favorites. It's such a sweet, lovable story. I loved it. I've re-read it over and over again. Shannon really did an amazing job on it. The world is just new and real and fresh. I loved discovering quarry speech, and the characters that inhabit that village. They all have this touch and spark. The story was very delightful and I loved how all the girls would band together at hard points. It's just a great book. For middle grade and high school. Really easy to enjoy and love.
