Showcase Sunday (#42)

Hosted by Viky @Books, Biscuits & Tea

The other day I went with my good friend Carla to Cash Converters, a second hand store that sells everything… and when I say everything I mean absolutely everything.

Carla went nuts and bought at least three books…. I bought only one but it was a good choice since I’ve been wanting this book for a while. And the book looks brand new despite being second hand.

So, check out what I bought:

Princess Academy

Princess Academy [Princess Academy #1]
Shannon Hale
Release Date: April 17th, 2007
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens

Synopsis:
Miri lives on a mountain where, for generations, her ancestors have quarried stone and lived a simple life. Then word comes that the king’s priests have divined her small village the home of the future princess. In a year’s time, the prince himself will come and choose his bride from among the girls of the village. The king’s ministers set up an academy on the mountain, and every teenage girl must attend and learn how to become a princess.

Miri soon finds herself confronted with a harsh academy mistress, bitter competition among the girls, and her own conflicting desires to be chosen and win the heart of her childhood best friend. But when bandits seek out the academy to kidnap the future princess, Miri must rally the girls together and use a power unique to the mountain dwellers to save herself and her classmates.
