Princess Academy: Palace of Stone

Miri finds herself torn between the old and the new when her fresh life in the big city competes with her loyalty to her lonely mountain homeland. City life seems thrilling after a lifetime in the remote mountains, but the students of Miri’s new school are as frightening as they are exciting. Soon Miri finds herself torn between extremes, trying to balance her old life – loyalty to the princess, an old love, a real home – with the demands of new friends, a new crush and the bustling city. This story celebrates the joys of friendship, the delight of romance, and the fate of a beloved fairytale kingdom through the life-altering choices that Miri has to make.
