Uleyli is a princess-but she isn't happy with all that comes with it. She'd rather daydream and create art than learn how to rule her people. When a Spanish boy, Juan Ortiz, is captured by Uleyli's father, she intervenes on his behalf and begins to plot her escape from her village. As she dreams of a new life in Cuba, Uleyli encounters a series of problems that put her dreams at risk. To solve her problems she will need to use the power of her creativity to help save her new friend, her village, and herself.
