An insightful and humorous story of a young girl's determination to be who she wants to be.
Karan rolls her eyes. 'What's this year's theme? Oh no, let me guess,' she looks into the distance, pretending to ponder the possibilities. Sarcastically she asks, 'Is it ... could it possibly be ... a princess party?'
Teish is a sassy, soon-to-be 7-year-old and the apple of her dad's eye. She believes more than anything, that she is a Disney princess. Her older siblings, Karan and Kim, like to remind her that she isn't. Teish is determined to believe that she can be whoever she wants to be.
With the help of boisterous, irreverent cousins and friends, a princesses-of-colour party with all the trimmings and an adventure to the beach, Teish teaches her family that she can be a princess and remain true to herself.
But will her siblings accept her being a feisty Koori Princess?
