Did you love Princess Academy by Shannon Hale? It’s the story of a lowly mountain girl, Miri, who, along with the other girls in her village, is brought to a special academy where one of the young ladies will be chosen to be the eligible prince’s wife. We love Princess Academy because Miri is a strong, likeable protagonist and her story is just enough of a fairy tale to make us sigh contentedly, but not so perfect as to be boring.
So we’re beyond thrilled that Shannon Hale has announced that she will be publishing a sequel to Princess Academy–no title yet!–with Bloomsbury in fall 2012. In it, Miri will be traveling to the capital to assist the new princess-to-be. But when she befriends some revolutionaries, Miri will have to decide if their cause is important enough to risk her friendship with the princess. Plus, we’ve been promised a love triangle!
