Princess Academy. The Jewel amongst jewels. School for the royals and the rich. The dream school everybody wishes to attend. To live a dream of a life. But yet, not everything is as it seems and not always is the world just black and white. Drawn unwillingly into a world where a single misstep could spell her end, Katherine Emberson must figure out how to dance her own dance soon or be forced into a dance written by others. To survive, mask upon mask must be worn and the battlefield that is politics must be conquered. That or end up dead, her corpse fed to the vultures.
