Three guesses. Three wishes. Free choice?
A new fairy godmother has one week to create a happy ending. Failure will result in a lot worse than being put to sleep for a hundred years. Whoever said fairy tales were nice?
Bea is a cabbage fairy, because there are all kinds of fairies and some of them have to be cabbage fairies, but she dreams of being so much more. She wants to be a Fiction Management Executive (godmother class) but no one at the General Administration will take her seriously - until now.
When Bea is finally given a simple Happy Ever After story, she thinks all her dreams have come true. But there's something rotten behind the simplicity of the General Administration's plots. Now Bea knows the truth, she is faced with an impossible task. Can a lowly cabbage fairy stand up for what’s right by saving the girl from her own happy ending, all without invoking the anger of the General Administration and its monstrous, three-headed Beast?
After all, what kind of fairy godmother really cares about happy ever after?
