But soon their fight for freedom threatens to tear the kingdom apart in a costly civil war.

What happens next? A Street Rat becomes a leader. A princess becomes a revolutionary. And readers will never look at the story of Aladdin in the same way again.

    Jasmine is sick of being stuck in her palace. She wants adventure. She wants something new. Aladdin is just like all the other street rats; hungry, desperate, and crafty. So when he sees a princess in disguise walking through the market exposed to hundreds of thieves, Aladdin swoops down to save to day. The two bond and realize that while they both live a different life, they crave the same thing: difference. Unfortunately, their time is broken and Jasmine is rushed back to the palace and in deep trouble for escaping. Jasmine's father, the sultan, is a bit oblivious man who relies on who he things is trustworthy, but is actually a crafty man: Jafar. Before Jasmine and the sultan know it, they are both in deep trouble. Jafar has outsmarted every option of escape and he holds his most powerful thing: a genie lamp. Pushing the sultan to his death, Jafar quickly settles on ruling the kingdom and the townsfolk. But the one thing that cannot be ruled: Jasmine's heart. Escaping the palace and Jafar, Jasmine finds Aladdin and quickly forms a plan with him and some other street rats. What at first was a little fight with Jafar, is now becoming a rebellion Jasmine and Aladdin are creating. Can they overthrow Jafar and conquer back the kingdom to steady hands? Happy reading!
