All she desired was to not be seen as a commodity.
For as long as Violet Piccolo could remember her decisions had always been made for her. From the type of clothes she wore to the friends she kept, she obeyed her parents’ wishes without protest, though it chaffed as she grew older. Then, on her birthday, comes the final straw: her father forces her into a relationship with his boss’s son in an attempt to advance his own career. Sick of the manipulation, Violet makes a stand for the first time in her life – with unexpected results. To her horror, she isn’t just punished by her parents; she also shrinks to a mere few inches high!
Trouble will always find you no matter your size…
The trouble doesn’t stop there. The petite girl soon finds herself dragged into another world, one filled with wonder, danger, and magic. Yet while she has been freed from the shackles of her childhood home, she finds herself confronted with others who believe they know what is best for her. To fly free, to discover who she truly is, to achieve her destiny, she will have to learn that sometimes merely standing isn’t enough. Some things, she’ll have to fight for. And with the aid of a legendary crystal rose, this Thumbelina may achieve all that and more…
It’s time to set your sights and aim for the sky.
