Praise for 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
