Once upon a time there was a fairy godmother named Desiderata who had a good heart, a wise head, and poor planning skills--which, unfortunately, left the Princess Emberella in the care of her other (not quite so good and wise) godmother when death came for Desiderata.

In the end, it will take all of Tiffany's inner strength to save herself . . . if it can be done at all.
