This is totally a good thing because the book is a geared toward that audience and once I adjusted my mindset to this I found myself captivated by her character. To top that off, Miri is a pretty mature fourteen-year-old. … More Princess Academy | Book Review
Initial Thoughts Robin McKinley is an absolute master of old school YA Fantasy. Blue Sword was published in 1982 and is a perfect example of the beauty of old YA.
