Imogene is entering middle school ... with a twist!  She's grown up in a Renaissance Faire, and has never attended tradtional school. She's now wearing sneakers (instead of the leather shoes hand-crafted by her Dad). For the first time, she spends her days away from her family. Imogene faces the challenges of middle school - bullying, popularity contests, and 'fitting in' - while she misses her Rennaissance life.
