I was inspired to write these stories by my personal observations of family, friends, and students and by my own memories of growing up. My purpose was to present common problems which teens, parents, friends, and counselors might more comfortably discuss in a fairy tale setting.Teens are often dissatisfied with their lives, wishing to change something—image, friends, schools, home situation, even their parents. This book addresses such topics as personal identity, making friends, dating, revealing your true self, addiction, communication, relationships, social awareness, career preparation, and making the right choices.Like fairy tales, the stories are set “anywhere” and at “anytime”. The princesses could be from any country or ethnicity. Although these fairy tales have quick, happy endings, in real life problems may take more time to resolve. In these tales you will meet ten princesses in different situations. One of the princesses could be you!This book is for every teen, parent, teacher and counselor who may see these problems in a daughter, friend, student, or advisee. Perhaps discussions of these problems may evolve more easily in the context of these fairy tales. Think about these ten princesses and what happened to them. One of them could be someone you know, or one of them could be you!
