You Are More Powerful Than You Think

The stories we read matter. They influence who we become. For generations, girls have been handed a passive role when it comes to fairy tale heroines. A damsel in distress. A princess waiting to be rescued by anyone but herself.

Perfectly Awkward Tales are adapted from inspiring fairy tales from around the world, chosen for their surprising girl heroes. At the heart of every adventure, an ordinary girl is faced with an impossible task. Each must find her power by discovering the gift that will see her through.

Intuition. Determination. Confidence. Every girl has a gift.
