What a beautiful story this was. I was wary of the whole Princess
Academy thing because of Princess Diaries. But this was so good.
Imagine Heidi plus Ella Enchanted plus every good fairy tale.
The villagers are informed that the Prince must marry someone from their village in a year's time, so the young women are to be sent to "Princess Academy."
It's also got a twist ending that is pretty good.
This one was worth paying full price at Target.
