It's been a long time since I read the book, but this graphic novel interpretation was a lovely reminder.

Kel is training to become a knight - the first girl to openly train for knighthood in the kingdom of Tortall since the king decreed females could train. Of course, the boys don't want her there and neither does the training master. So, she has to prove herself again and again until she wins them over. The first in a quartet.

Kaladry (Kel) of Mindelan is determined to be a knight, even if her first year of training is probationary because she's a girl, which is unfair. Nevertheless, she persists; fellow page Neal befriends her, and Kel stands up to bullies Joren and Zahir so repeatedly that she wins the others over, and they become too big a group to bully. At the end of her year, Wyldon agrees that she can return after summer, though he thinks it would be better if she didn't.

Kel's gritty determination and toughness, and her strong moral code, make her an excellent hero. This graphic novel version of Kel's first year training to be a knight stands alone, although it can be enriched by reading the rest of Tamora Pierce's Tortall books. Back matter includes the artist's sketchbook, about the authors and illustrator, a cast of characters, and a glossary.… (mer)

A fun book. I would have enjoyed it more were it in 3rd person limited instead of omniscient. It also took me awhile to realize that the events in the beginning were happening at separate times. I found myself asking a lot "where is this going," but as the first book in the series, I think it was just setting up things to come.
