Imperia Encanto, the oldest daughter of Prince Charming and Cinderella, can’t stop the girls at her exclusive private school from picking on her sister Grace. In her home Kingdom, Princess Imperia merely has to frown and everyone does her bidding. But in Beverly Hills, no one knows she’s a princess. No one believes fairy tales are real and Imperia’s not allowed to tell them.

Too young to have magic, unable to charm like her father does, Imperia relies on something strictly American—her fists. But the punch heard round Los Angeles only makes matters worse. Imperia must make things right—even if she doesn’t want to.

Standing Up For Grace, the first Imperia Encanto adventure, showcases the difference between our world and the fairy tale world. The adventure stands alone, but fans of Kristine Grayson’s novel, Wickedly Charming, will note that this story takes place while the divorced Prince Charming falls in love—proving once again that there’s a difference between what kids tell their parents and what actually happens. Just like there’s a difference between the fairy tale and the story behind it.
