it is confidence the ability to negotiate and advocate for herself and her village and the chance to stand up against the exploitation that is being enacted against her people From the start Miri is very aware of the way her people are stigmatized and judged for being “simple” mountain people and as she grows in knowledge and self esteem her desire to fight against this unfairness only growsThe prince is also fairly tangential to Miri’s story because the most important relationships in the books are the bonds that form between all of the academy girls The importance and power of female friendship support and communication in this book really cannot be overstated and while there is a lot of competition between them especially in the start of the book nearly all of the girls gradually learn that the most important thing is to support each other so they can all succeed One of my favorite scenes in this regard is the scene where they all use uarry speak to help each other with an exam so that they can go back to the village for a holidayJust as Miri is instrumental in the push to better her village with the education the girls receive she is also instrumental in the development of this sisterhood between the girls but in the beginning of the book she is something of an outcast amongst them because her disability prevents her from working with them in the mines Hale does an excellent job of presenting Miri’s insecurity shame and secret feelings of being useless and it is an absolute joy to see the delicacy with which she explores the shame in particular Miri projects her own inner shame onto the people of the village assuming that they think her just as useless as she thinks she is and because she never talks about there is no chance for her to realize that her assumptions are in fact without basis It’s a wonderfully done examination of the way that shame perpetuates itself through silence and isolation and I think one of the book’s greatest triumphs is when Miri is finally able to break through that shame to connect genuinely with othersI love Miri for her cleverness courage vulnerability and humor and I love all of the girls of the academy from shy fellow outcast Britta to Katar the “mean girl” of the group Consistently nasty as she is to Miri it is ultimately revealed that her unkindness and competitiveness come from her fierce unhappiness on the mountain and her desperate desire to know other places “‘I want to be somebody else and see other things And now I never will’Miri shivered at a breeze coming up from the valley All her life she had seen herself as the only lonesome thing in the world but now even Katar seemed but a small child lost on a far hill”As ever Miri is an agent of change and encourages Princess to be Britta to bring Katar down the mountain as a court representative of the mountain people Miri knows than ever that her mountain is home but now she has the tools to help make that home flourish than ever It’s a lovely ending to a lovely book and as I just recently discovered that there are two seuels you may have to listen to me talk about them sometime in the near futureAbout the Author from Macmillan “Shannon Hale’s mother says she was a storyteller from birth jabbering endlessly in her carriage as the two strolled through the neighborhood; once she could form complete sentences she made up stories bribing her younger siblings to perform them in mini plays When she was ten she began writing books mostly fantasy stories where she was the heroine and she continued writing secretly for years while pursuing acting in stage and improv comedy After detours studying in Mexico the U K and Paraguay Shannon earned a bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Utah and a Masters in Creative Writing from the University of Montana In the interim she submitted short stories and novels to magazines and publishers saving all her rejection letters which she has since laminated into one continuous 60 foot roll which she proudly unfurls to audiences as a testament to her dedication and determination Since the publication of her first book The Goose Girl in 2003 Shannon has become a beloved author to young readers as well as booksellers and educators Her third novel Princess Academy earned her a Newbery Honor and is a New York Times Book Sense and Publishers Weekly bestseller Shannon has also written books for adults Austenland and The Actor and the Housewife Shannon lives in Salt Lake City Utah with her husband Dean their children and their pet a small plastic pig”
