Princess academy definitely is one of the best fiction novels I've ever read. It is so imaginative- I don't know how the author thought of prairie speech- it's really magical and mysterious. I love how Shannon Hale gives us little clues on the way to hint at what will happen next. When I thought the book would be over, something very, very suspenseful happens and Miri needs prairie speech to save princess academy. I will recommend this book to anyone... who is a girl.
