Rags to Riches and Paupers to Kings.
A wish. A dream. The good always win.
But don't look too closely, or the fae might creep in...
Everyone knows how folk tales are supposed to go: a hero, a heroine, a kiss and a wedding. Happily ever after and on to the next one. But what most people don't know is why these stories always seem to have the same characters, the same plots, and the same endings.
The truth is, so-called 'fairy stories' are the product of a totalitarian fae government. These formulaic plots aren't accidental, they are designed. Every evil witch, every poisoned apple and every deadly spinning wheel; every happily ever after, every true love's kiss and every knight in shining armour - all are the products of the General Administration, and if there's one thing the GenAm hates, it's unscripted behaviour.
So when Bea, a lowly cabbage fairy, decides she wants more for herself than a bit-part role, all hell breaks loose. Suddenly Bea finds herself at the centre of a whole heap of trouble, and any mistake could have her hauled up in front of the sinister and secretive Redaction Department, where she'll face a fare much worse than death.
Can Bea overthrow the General Administration, save her friends and - maybe - come out on top? After all, does anyone ever really get a happy ending?
