Princess Ben
What a great story. Princess Ben starts out as a spoiled child of a doting mother and father. After her parents are killed she is forced to face the fact that she is a princess and must be taught to act like one. After many ordeals of magic and misfortune, she finds her true self and happiness in a tale of personal growth and inner strength.
