In this fresh collection of surprising, subversive princesses, ten authors come together to explore what it’s like to defy expectation. Everyone knows a princess in peril—the girl trapped in a tower or guarded by a dragon until someone rides in and saves her from the danger. But what happens when the princess is the danger? What if it’s not the dragon you should be worried about but the princess hiding behind him? What if the girl needs to be in that tower—not for her protection, but for ours? In ten new intriguing tales, various authors introduce us to girls who defy our notion of the perfect princess.
Jeanne’s story ‘Cold Bargain’ is included in this collection of short stories.
