    "I saw this book, Princess Academy by Shannon Hale, on the New York Times Bestseller list and had to buy it for my 12 year-old niece. We started our own little book club and we are reading this book together. It is a fairy tale about Miri, who weds her prince after winning the princess competition and becomes a not so typical princess. I would recommend this book for children as well as adults. It is well written, has an exciting plot, and the characters while not so perfect are likable, witty, and courageous."

    "This is a pretty cliche story. How many book or movies have been about this topic and they are always the same. At least if you're going to have a princess in disguise premise you could make it more unique. "

    "With another glamorous royal wedding in the news, I can recommend this book if you want to keep your fairy-tale fantasy alive! Desi, the main character, as a special super power we'd all like: The ability to transform into any princess who needs a break from the hectic schedule of a royal."

    "I bought this book for my daughter because she's a princess and loves princess stories. I can't quite tell whether the heroine, a princess, is kept in disguise in this novel, though she certainly has to undergo several trials in the course of the book. "

    "Great little fairy tale that could have taken the fantasy and damsel in distress road, but didn't, and it's a better story because of it. I especially liked how down to earth Amy is, and how she gets a happy ending in the end, without too much gnashing of teeth to get there."

    ""Where is the young princess? Oh, she just left.", says obviously disguised princess in a men's uniform. Genderbending princess tales are some of the best tales to read because they force the read to go through the emotions of having to cover up and identity and try to wear a different one. This book does a great job of capturing the reader's imagination in genre of genderbending. "
