    Emilie would do anything to attend university and become a magical physician; unfortunately, noble girls are expected to study illusionary arts instead. When she finds Annette, a common girl who dreams of learning those illusionary arts and showing the world what she can do—and who happens to look like Emilie—both their lives are transformed. After swapping identities, Annette is overwhelmed by the opulence of noble life and by her own magic, while Emilie runs to the university, where she finally experiences the freedom of common life she's craved. Meanwhile, a revolution brews as a mysterious figure spreads information on how the king abuses commoners. Chapters flip between Annette's and Emilie's journeys, set in a realistically diverse fantasy world with an intriguing, if at times confusing, magic system. Miller (Mask of Shadows duology) packs several complex and nuanced themes into one stand-alone, heart-wrenching tale, and once the story finds its footing, it will absorb readers completely. Hand to any lover of magic, rebellion, secrets, and self-discovery. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
