London, 1872. In Victorian England, opportunities are scarce for Joanna and her sisters. Their only hope is to marry well, but who would take one of the penniless sisters as a wife? Joanna doesn’t believe in fairy tales, and chooses to be her own prince. Hence, she decides to pursue a career of her own by attending the prestigious Oliver Kenwood Boarding School – disguised as a boy.
If only it weren’t for her cunning yet fascinating teacher Charles Hanson who seems to dislike her quite passionately. With him watching her every step, she finds it increasingly difficult to hold up her disguise, particularly when rich and confident Abigail sets her eyes on Hanson – why does it bother Joanna quite so much? And is her secret really as safe as she hopes?
