    Not bad.

    It’s a cute story about a mountain village where everyone works in the quarry and no-one gets to be royalty – until a prophecy declares that the next queen will come from their village. There’s a make-shift academy where the girls learn everything they need to rule the country at the side of the prince. And there are themes of family, education, relationships, etc. But it reminded me of “Kringe in ‘n Bos” (Circles in a Forest) by Dalene Matthee. Not just the themes, but also the way the characters were represented. In Princess Academy, Miri is the one who sees the potential not just of her own life but also the betterment of her village. (That’s Saul’s role in the other book.) Miri learns how unfairly the quarry workers are treated (minimum wage for the valuable stone). (Saul learns this about the woodcutters and the wood they provide to the sellers.) The point is: it’s a good book, but I’ve already read something similar which had a better resolution (Saul actually did save his people, he didn’t try doing it in the next book). I didn’t connect with the characters, though, which is probably why my thoughts kept returning to “Kringe in ‘n Bos”.
