Princesses, Witches, Dragons, and Knights, oh my!

A young girl who has no recollection of who she is rescues a young boy named Remington who wants to become a knight from a wicked witch before they travel to a school called Pennyroyal Academy who train young girls to become Princesses of the Shield who fight Witches. Upon meeting some new friends who don her "Evie" (Eh-vie) after the staff calls her Cadet Eleven after she doesn't know her own name due to a memory curse, Evie tries her best to survive at Pennyroyal Academy while fighting a bully and more. Will she succeed? Read on and find out for yourself.

This was a pretty good read. When I first discovered the book, it had a really beautiful cover on it. The book was also written by one of the writers of the animated TV show "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" and "My Gym Partner's a Monkey" which was pretty cool as well and found out from an interview he did that he sent this to actress Reese Witherspoon to read. She loved it so much that she wanted to make it a film before this book was even published so there is a film in the works for this book which she is producing and that Lionsgate is doing. If you enjoy stories about princesses, fairy tales, dragons, and more then definitely give Pennyroyal Academy a check out. It's available wherever books are sold and at your local library.

Listened to an interview online that the author of this book did and he said that before this book was published he got Actress Reese Witherspoon to read it and she is going to make this book a movie and produce it. I thought that was cool. I hope Evie can survive at PennyRoyal Academy and am not sure if its pronounced "Ehvie" or "eevee". I've been just saying "Ehvie""
