What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

For her twelve daughters, the Queen’s death is a loss beyond their mother: the King decides his daughters must be kept safe at all costs, which includes their lessons, possessions, and even their freedom. While locked away most hours of the day and night, they stumble upon a hidden, magical world, and it seems a perfect temporary escape. Their outings do not go unnoticed, however, and the King announces a contest: the man who discovers where the princesses go each night can marry the girl of his choice and become ruler of the kingdom. But the sisters will not bend to this fate, so they determine to save themselves in a brilliant twist. The Restless Girls is a sparkling whirl of a fairytale that doesn’t need a prince to save the day, and instead is full of brave, resourceful, clever young women.
