Princess Amelia is the least likely person to become queen of the land of Gossling, from her position as the fourth daughter to her non-princessy ways. But when a plague sweeps the land, kills her parents, and leaves her evil uncle in power, it is Amelia who must find the courage to save her kingdom--and her sisters. Readers will be thoroughly enchanted by the coming-of-age of an unlikely princess.
"The story begins slowly but gathers momentum with many twists and turns. It contains numerous elements of the classic stories including the battle between good and evil, magic, and hidden identities." -- School Library Journal
