In this royal adventure, Princess Juniper learns what it means to rule a kingdom-at least for the summer. For her thirteenth nameday all Princess Juniper wants is a country of her own. So when rumblings of unrest start in his kingdom, Juniper's father decides to grant his daughter's wish and sends her to a small, idyllic corner of the Hourglass Mountains until trouble blows over. Once there, Juniper discovers that ruling a small country-even just for the summer-is a bit harder than she'd expected, especially when cousin Cyril challenges her rule. Still, the most difficult part is to come. Juniper and her friends discover that her father's kingdom is at war. The only way to stay safe is to remain in the Hourglass Mountains much longer than planned. Juniper may have her own country after all . . . but what will that mean for the kingdom of Torr? This book is perfect for fans of Frozen and Brave , who like their princess strong and smart as well as sparkly.

display_description Tired of all the rules of comportment at court, Princess Juniper asks for, and receives, a very small country of her own for her thirteenth name-day, one she can set up and rule with less formality and more simple friendship--but there is trouble at home and she has to find a way to thwart her distant cousin's ambitions.
