Description: It's hard being the imperfect daughter of the perfect couple. Tally's mother is the beautiful Snow White, her father, the former Prince Charming. When they decide it's time for Tally to choose a consort, she does what any self-respecting princess would do under the same circumstances--she runs! With a few hints from her six vertically-challenged honorary uncles, Tally sets off on a quest to find the missing seventh dwarf--and along the way finds some answers to questions about herself and her future as the heir to the throne of the Kingdom of Placidity.

Having a beautiful mother is a curse.
Not the "Poof! You're a toad!" kind of curse. More like the "You're Queen Snow's daughter?" and "does King Charming suspect she fooled around with a homely peasant dairyman nine months before you were born?" kind of curse.
"You are just a late bloomer, darling girl." Mother said this to me practically every day, always making an attempt to fluff my plain brown braids as if they were golden gossamer curls.
"You are beautiful to me." Father offered this helpful comment every other day, making sure to kiss my cheek as if it were rosy alabaster instead of spattered with freckles.
In fact, by the time I was thirteen, I'd just about decided that I was either adopted, or the beautiful Snow White had not been as snowy white as hunky Prince Charming had believed when he'd planted that miraculous kiss on her ruby lips. I mean, it couldn't have been the first time a less than one hundred percent pure pedigreed prince or princess had shot out into the Royal Midwife's waiting hands.
Besides which, Mother had been sleeping like a dead person for quite awhile before Father ever showed up.
