A great children's book ( )
  Bookslesstravelled | Apr 15, 2022 |
This book became internet-famous in the discussion around gender-and-books, that it's normal to give girls books with male protagonists, but that books with female protagonists still only get recommended to girls, and we should change that. The author talks about how when she's gone into schools to give talks, only the girls are excused classes to come to her assemblies.

Which is all pretty outrageous even if Princess Academy was a very pink-and-sparkly book, but it's not at all what the name promises. Yes, the plot is that a prince wants to chose a princess. Yes, there is a romance subplot, with some sweet handholding and feeling all squirmy and shy when the beloved talks to her.

But the main themes of the book are a) being really poor and living in a mining community and smelling of goats and being looked down on by all the other posher towns, and b) trying to survive in a horrible school where you get punished if you talk about how it's unfair and get locked in a cupboard. Which are both interesting, but not hugely gendered or princessy. There is a big dollop of 'learning is important' (for lots of reasons, but including 'so you can get rich and not be ripped off') and some hitting bandits with hammers. And if you live-and-breath the magic mountain rock, you can be telepathic, which is better than dying slowly of COPD like you would in the real world. ( )

A 5th grade student told me I HAD to read this book, as it was the best book she'd ever read. I found the story very enjoyable and I am glad she recommended it to me. ( )

I bought this book despite the fact I dislike the word Princess. However, the book was great. If you have the same problem with the concept of Princess, forget it. The story is all about courage and Miri is a character to be respected. ( )

Hale weaves an intricate, multilayered story about families, relationships, education, and the place we call home.
afegit per Katya0133 | editaSchool Library Journal (Oct 1, 2005)
 
Unfortunately, Hale's lighthearted premise and underlying romantic plot bog down in overlong passages about commerce and class, a surprise hostage situation and the specifics of '"quarry-speech."
afegit per Katya0133 | editaPublishers Weekly (Aug 8, 2005)
 
There are many pleasures to this satisfying tale: a precise lyricism to the language ... and a rhythm to the story that takes its tropes from many places, but its heart from ours.
afegit per Katya0133 | editaKirkus Reviews (Jul 15, 2005)
 
Hale nicely interweaves feminist sensibilities in this quest-for-a-prince-charming, historical-fantasy tale.

Sheilah Egan (Children's Literature)
Miri yearns to prove herself useful to her widowed father by working in the village quarry, but, he forbids this, thus cutting his daughter off from the bond of the villagers who earn their living carving stone on Mount Eskel. In this unusual blend of coming-of-age, adventure, fantasy, and fairy tale story Shannon Hale gives us a strong girl persona, wicked “outlaw outsiders,” corrupt business dealings, strict “princess trainers,” and a prince in need of a proper princess. Miri proves her worth to her father, the village, the head of the Academy itself, and to the fellow worthy of this quick-witted, hard-working “almost a woman.” The crux of the tale is the “quarry speech” used by the stone workers to communicate over the noise and confusion of the quarry, which is adapted by Miri in her desperation to save the village girls after they have been kidnapped by the outlaws. As usual, Hale ties her characters to the land in which they have been born and to Nature itself. This is an engaging, plain “good read” that just happens to be filled with life lessons about friendship, acceptance, courage, endurance, and finding the right path. Guard against dismissing this fantasy as more of the same old genre; there are a lot of fresh ideas and solid truths to be had in this finely-crafted novel. 2005, Bloomsbury, $16.95. Ages 12 up.
