Pennyroyal Academy is about a young girl who wants to learn how to be a princess. Pennyroyal Academy is not just for princesses in training, but also a place where knights train as well. The academy has a reputation for having the most legendary princesses attend there. Both princesses and knights are training to fight the witches they are at war with.
This book has 22 chapters and 314 pages and should be read by kids at least ten years old. This book would also be thrilling for older kids as well. The writing is quite deep and it gives an in-depth story that has some surprising plot twists. I wanted to keep reading because there was always something exciting happening in this book. It was hard to stop at the end of a chapter.
I would give PennyRoyal Academy 5 stars because of the amazing story and the surprise ending.

Pennyroyal Academy: Seeking bold, courageous youths to become tomorrow’s princesses and knights… Come one, come all!
A girl from the forest arrives in a bustling kingdom with no name and no idea why she is there, only to find herself at the center of a world at war. She enlists at Pennyroyal Academy, where princesses and knights are trained to battle the two great menaces of the day: witches and dragons. There, given the name “Evie,” she must endure a harsh training regimen under the steel glare of her Fairy Drillsergeant, while also navigating an entirely new world of friends and enemies. As Evie learns what it truly means to be a princess, she realizes surprising things about herself and her family, about human compassion and inhuman cruelty. And with the witch forces moving nearer, she discovers that the war between princesses and witches is much more personal than she could ever have imagined.
