Willow Kingswell thinks of herself as an ordinary fourteen-year-old girl. Although she has been hearing her grandmother's stories about the enchanted realm of Mistolear for as long as she can remember, being a princess is the furthest thing from her mind. What's worrying Willow these days is finding a way to get accepted by the in-crowd at her high school without betraying her friend Abby.

What's also worrying her is Nana, who is her only family, and who seems increasingly frail and confused. Suddenly, Willow finds herself magically transported to the real Mistolear, where it turns out she actually does have a large family - and a royal one at that! Willow's courage and intellect are put to the test as she attempts to save the kingdom from a terrifying spell.

Maggie L. Wood has created a complex and compelling adventure fantasy that addresses contemporary teen issues with insight, compassion and a wry sense of humour.
