Lady Truthful Newington is used to dressing as a boy. After all, how else is she supposed to have any fun? It's hard to go on adventures with your three rambunctious male cousins while dressed in skirts and having to worry about a corset.

But all those childhood escapades are nothing compared to the adventure in store when the heirloom of her family, the famed Newington Emerald, is stolen during a storm obviously conjured by magic. Truthful embarks on a quest to reclaim the emerald, disguised as a man by day and donning ballgowns come nightfall. Will she survive the harrowing experience of hunting down a malignant sorceress AND getting through her first London season?
