Any additional comments?

Shannon Hale writes lyrically of the lives of young men and women as they are deciding who to be in the world. Palace of Stone continues the tale begun in Princess Academy, allowing us to watch Miri as she acclimates to life in the city and the poltical forces present there. We watch as she learns whom to trust and how to work her way through situations with no clear right or wrong answers. This is a novel for adults of allages, not just young adults.
