But Smedley refuses to acknowledge her as his heir. Her uncle also wants the throne and he’s already tried once to eliminate Moxie as competition.
Moxie recognizes she hasn't been trained to rule and she needs lessons about the real world. Moxie goes on a quest to learn how to rule and to learn about life outside the castle.
Moxie faces unexpected obstacles as she struggles with adventures in a brutal reality that tests her mettle and determination.
This is a fantasy coming-of-age story that is decidedly different than the usual ones. The book is filled with satire and humor. What more can a reader wish for?
It takes place against the backdrop of Camelot, but this isn’t the Camelot of legends. It’s Camelot in a parallel universe where the Knights of the Round Table play football and Guinevere coaches the team’s cheerleaders. The wizard Merlin struggles to understand the Magic of the Mind using primitive ink-stained diagrams and Stonehenge is a theater-in-the-round.
Moxie’s rollicking adventures are the stuff of comedy. Enjoy!
