Princess Academy, by Shannon Hale
Miri is just another girl living on Mount Eskel. She is very shocked when a Royal Soldier comes to the mountain and informs everyone that every girl on the mountain must attend a Princess Academy. At first, Miri is shocked, but she soon finds out what the academy is like and wants to come home even more. This is a great book told about friendship, love, family and the meaning of life.
