A humorous tale where a bold and spunky girl ends up the one saving Prince Charming

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.--H l ne 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
