Book Report: Princess Academy: Palace of Stone by Shannon Hale

IMG_4096As good or better than the first book. I’d recommend it for girls ages 12 to 99–and especially for one girl I know named Keziah, who hasn’t read it yet.

After the first few chapters, I thought I knew where the story would go and how it would get there, and I felt slightly bored. But as the plot progressed and developed, I enjoyed it far too much to care whether I’d guessed the ending correctly.

Hale’s prose is fun and reads effortlessly. She’s the kind of author who makes me want to work harder on my writing.

One other note (to anyone who’s seen The Princess Bride), this is a kissing book.
