I love visualizing. If you do too, this is the book to read! The author described the setting very well. When the stones were rolling down Mount Eskel, it said it was like the mountain was roaring. I just love it when authors do things like that! This story reminded me of my twin sister Julia. She is like the main character. She’s always strong, and never gives up, like Miri. Since Julia’s always strong, Miri instantly reminded me of Julia. My favorite part of Princess Academy was when the bandits came. When I was reading about it, I couldn’t pull my eyes away from the page! That part was scary and exciting. Princess Academy was one of the best books I’ve ever read!
This is a book I would definitely recommend. I would recommend it to someone who likes adventures. You could definitely relate to Miri if you’re always strong. This story teaches us it doesn’t matter how strong [like muscles] you are. It matters how strong and brave you are.
