It took me a while to read this book, despite liking everything else by Shannon Hale I've read. The premise seemed a bit hokey to me, and I was a bit skeptical of Hale being able to pull it off.

I was wrong. This is a really fun read and the premise is unique and interesting. I enjoyed it enough that I immediately picked up the next book. ( )

I enjoyed this story, the world-building especially, but I feel that the last few chapters were an unnecessary addition to a tale that was good enough on its own, without one more crisis tacked on. ( )

This was a reread, and I loved it just as much this second time around as I did when my much younger self read it the first time.

Fourteen-year-old Miri lives on a mountain where her people quarry a special stone that they supply to the rest of the kingdom. In their isolated village, they have little knowledge or care about what goes on in the lowlands. So the last thing anyone expects is for a royal messenger to arrive and announce that the next princess will be chosen from Mount Eskel.

An academy is established to train the rough mountain girls in everything they need to know to be princesses; in one year the prince will come and select his bride. But as Miri and the others know, the mountain is unpredictable. A lot can change in a year.

I love how this book subverted my expectations by taking a rather cliché premise and turning it into a story about the value of education and the power that comes from knowing your worth and banding together as a group. Everything about this book is perfect and you should read it!

And I’ve recently discovered it’s a series?! So those are going straight to the top of my TBR! ( )

Not a bad story all together. ( )

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.
