Plenty of suspenseful moments that peak and fall, building into the next intense event. Each girl's story is brought to a satisfying conclusion, but this is not a fluffy, predictable fairytale, even though it has wonderful moments of humor. Instead, Hale weaves an intricate, multilayered story about families, relationships, education, and the place we call home (School Library Journal, starred review)
There are many pleasures to this satisfying tale: a precise lyricism to the language and a rhythm to the story that takes its tropes from many places, but its heart from ours . . . an unalloyed joy (Kirkus, starred review) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The author skilfully invites the reader to examine (and question) the idea of romantic love, compatibility, social class, happiness, loyalty, and how education can improve lives. In a nutshell; a group of working class girls are sent (by royal decree) to train up so that they have the skills needed to be a princess. They learn how to read, they learn about commerce, diplomacy, dancing, and how to make polite conversation. But most importantly they learn about the outside world and are sufficiently empowered to improve their treatment in the school and their village's lot.
A book I am more than happy for my daughters to read as the heroine is strong and independent, without having to pretend she's a boy!
I can suggest it to people who are not looking for an intense read, I personally found it hard concentrate on the storyline, it goes on ALOT. But it is a very sweet story.
Hope this helps.
