"And nothing will stop her from saving her true love and rescuing her kingdom. The acclaimed author of Sea Witch turns the classic damsel-in-distress tale on its head with this story of adventure, identity, and love."

Will this book annoy me? Most likely. Will I read it anyway? Yes.

I cannot resist princess stories. I am weak.
