Written in a style that sweeps you up with it's familiarity, this book weaves its life
lessons between lavish description and poignant narrative. Buckle in, because
once you've hopped on Allora's rollercoaster of a life you won't want to get off.

Allora never questioned that she was a princess. After all, her daddy gave her
everything she wanted, her mother was beautiful and loved her so much, and
they lived in a beautiful house. She danced every day in the sunshine of
Southern California and everything was wonderful.

Except for the fact that this was the 1980s and not some once upon a time.

When a family tragedy leaves a blank in her memory and a mess of physical
ailments, Allora begins to question who she really is.

In this book, all the ghosts and fairies and magic of the world is real. But none of
them can save Allora from her life or from herself.

A coming of age story for a world that has lost its rights of passage, this book is
part fairy tale, part philosophy, and part recipe for gaining agency in life. It will
sweep you up in the language of loss and love, spin you through a modern day
circus, and land you squarely back on your feet, wanting to do the work to be
more than the person you thought you were.
