Ava wants friends, which is why she agreed to work with some classmates on a project about the modern relevance of fairy tales. But when Ava’s partners show up late then leave early without finishing any work, Ava resents having to do it all herself. With so much on her mind, it’s no wonder Ava’s not sure whether she’s awake or dreaming when she’s curiously visited by fairy tale characters. Her visitors seem to have their own problems and Ava gleans a lesson from timorous Cinderella, brash Maid Marion, besotted Robin Hood, and evil Evil Queen.
