I thought I dreamt this book for a while. ( )

Probably 3.5 stars...fun little book. ( )

Very cute, middle-grade fairy tale. I loved the setting of Mt. Eskel, the culture of the mountain village and quarry, and all of the characters. Protagonist was smart and spunky, but not to the point of being too precocious. I also enjoyed the fact that she wasn't the sole player in every event. Many current books feature a super special heroine who must save the world on her own; thankfully, Miri comes into her own and finds her place in the world but with a whole cast of friends and family. This was a nice change. My only major complaint what that the book was a bit long and dragged in some spots, enough that I kept looking to see how many page to the end. But I would definitely recommend to the late elementary and middle school crowd. It had a great message and plot, and was well-written. ( )

This is about as far from my day to day grind as it gets...therefore, quite a nice little vacation wrapped up in a story about mountain girls from a mining village exposed to books for the first time. Really enjoyed this one. ( )

Miri lives on a mountain where, for generations, her ancestors have lived a simple life. Then word comes that the king's priests have divined her village the home of the future princess. In a year's time, the prince will choose his bride from among the village girls.

The king's ministers set up an academy on the mountain, and every teenage girl must attend and learn how to become a princess. Soon Miri finds herself confronted with a harsh academy mistress, bitter competition among the girls, and her own conflicting desires. Winning the contest could give her everything she ever wanted--but it would mean leaving her home and family behind ( )

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.
