Reviews

Praise for M. A. Larson's PENNYROYAL ACADEMY:

"M. A. Larson has created a magical world of adventure-a world that shows who princesses truly are: people of character and courage and strength. No one rescues Pennyroyal princesses; they rescue themselves."-Reese Witherspoon

"'Pennyroyal Academy' is one of those books you want to parse out and make last. It is a breathtakingly exciting novel, and Evie deserves a special place in a new pantheon of capable, feisty, and yes, admirable literary princesses."-The New York Times Book Review

"Flashes of inspiration light up a protagonist with plenty of spine... A sequel-worthy debut..."-Kirkus Reviews

"Forget the notion of traditional princesses... Larson has crafted a dark Grimm-like fairy tale, with teens training to defeat evil, save villages, and find their own identities in the process... Larson has left the door open for a welcome second year at Pennyroyal with Evie and her friends."-Booklist

"[Larson] playfully nods to classic fairy tales... but he also imbues the fantasy with an important, affirming message for readers: 'You get to decide what you want to be. No one else.' "-Publishers Weekly

"A perfect fit for fans of Hale's Princess Academy and the novels of Gail Carson Levine."-BCCB
