She tries to help a spoiled prince find his princess, she had a hard time due to his snobbish and ignorant mother quizzing all the princesses. That really made me angry because of the message it’s sending out to people. Her whole family dies from it, except her little brother whom she saved through magic. Honestly, I was pleased with the ending. I would recommend this story to anyone that enjoys a good twisted fairytale.
