This Tale Is Forbidden by Polly Crosby

Nesta longs to see the city that lies beyond the forest, and when her grandmother is abducted, she journeys there in the hope of rescuing her.

The city’s Authorities have rewritten history, replacing the fairytale heroines with weak girls who must rely on men.

Can she evade the Authorities long enough to rescue her grandmother and liberate everyone else, bringing magic back into the world?
