Page: Book 2 of the Protector of the Small Quartetby Tamora Pierce
Synopses & Reviews
Book 2 of the Protector of the Small series
A New York Times Bestselling Author
Summer is over, and Keladry of Mindelan is back in training at the royal palace — no longer on probation, but an official page now. Three more years of instruction lie before her. Each year, the training will be more grueling and she will have to prove herself over and over. She will also perform an act of courage, skill and intuition that will change forever the way that pages are trained.
An accelerated Reader(R) Title
For use in schools and libraries only. The adventures of Keladry of Mindalen, daughter of nobles, begin with her service as a page and her efforts to prove herself to the males around her so to fulfill her dreams of becoming a knight.
Kel fights to maintain the rigorous regimen of a page while confronting the prejudices that come with being a female in a man’s world and coping with a crush on her closest friend, Neal.
“Pierce makes Kel sweat for her success through perseverance, hard work,
and skill. Readers will appreciate this true example of grrrl power.”
—School Library Journal
