Dear Agent X -
A stranger’s uninvited kiss at Clara’s seventeenth birthday party, in front of all her friends and long-time boyfriend, kick starts her journey toward high school social suicide. Suddenly, the invitation to spend the summer in New Windsor, New York, from a grandmother she’s believed dead her entire life, goes from “‘very bad idea’” to “very ‘convenient escape’.”
So Clara hops her first plane ever from Utah to New York, fingers crossed and hopes high. Night one at granny’s house gets her the silent treatment. Nice. When Grandma does pay attention to her, it’s only to introduce her to a family heirloom— a glass prince figurine that springs the family curse on Clara with one touch. It’s the same curse that killed her father, good ol’ granny explains, and it will kill her, too, unless she can find a way to break it.
The kiss-crazy stranger himself is the one guy who can help her out. He’s Snow White’s son, cursed by the not-really-dead evil Queen who finally got her revenge . And Clara’s family line suffers because her ancestor was the prince’s one true love who pledged her family’s legacy to helping him break his curse of immortality. On the flip side, though, the Knight's have only a short time to help or they face an early death.
With an unexpected nemesis and maybe even her own grandmother plotting against her, Clara must decide just how far out of her sheltered comfort zone she’s willing to go to secure her future.
