Sylvie has been a 12-year-old princess for more than 80 years, ever since the book she lives in was first printed. When a new reader gazes down into Chapter One, Sylvie breaks a rule--she looks at the Reader. Worse, she gets to know the Reader, and enters her dreams and subconscious, where she achieves many Good things, but the Greatest goes far beyond even her imaginings.
"Sylvie had an amazing life, but she didn't get to live it very often."
Sylvie has been a twelve-year-old princess for more than eighty years, ever since the book she lives in was first printed. She's the heroine, and her story is exciting -- but that's the trouble. Her story is always exciting in the same way. Sylvie longs to get away and explore the world outside the confines of her book.
When she breaks the cardinal rule of all storybook characters and looks up at the Reader, Sylvie begins a journey that not even she could have anticipated. And what she accomplishes goes beyond any great good thing she could have imagined...
