Title: THE PLASTIC SLIPPER
“If someone tried to put me to sleep, I’d strangle him with his own poisoned apple.”
That’s what Princess Rosaline Gabriella Kingston would say. No wonder her parents' efforts to get their daughter included in the princess fairy tale books always fail. Although pretty, when it comes to princess greatness, Rosy is a few diamonds short of a beautiful tiara.
But even tone-deaf, smart-mouthed princesses have their fair share of enemies. Rosy lacks an evil stepmother, so she has to settle for her deviously innocent cousin, Lady Christina, who's determined to leapfrog Rosy to become the most famous Princess of all.
She succeeds by hiring a lackey to kidnap the young princess. Luckily Rosy is able to escape and gets saved by handsome Prince Edward. Unluckily, she hits her head against a rock during her escape and loses her memory. Stuck in another kingdom with no memory of home, it seems like happily ever after isn’t such a sure thing after all.
THE PLASTIC SLIPPER (52,000 words) is a fairy tale for young adults, combining the charm of traditional fairy tales with a quirky heroine to lead the way.
