Description
You know all those stories that claim fairies cry sparkle tears and elves travel by rainbow? They're lies. All lies.
I've spent my life as an official adventurer. I travel across enchanted kingdoms saving magical creatures and fighting horrible beasts that most of you think are only myths and legends. I've never had a social life. My friends have all forgotten me. And let's not even talk about trying to do my homework. So -- I'm done I'm tired and I want to go back to being a normal girl. But then along comes "Prince Charming" asking for help, and, well, what's a tired girl like me supposed to do?
"Jenny is an adventurer I'd definitely want in my corner if my life ever took a wrong turn from Happily Ever After." -- Helene Boudreau, author of Real Mermaids Don't Wear Toe Rings
"Readers will laugh their way through the ups and downs of Jenny's many (mis)adventures." -- Jennifer A. Nielsen, author of Elliot and the Goblin War
