Bloom is a mud fairy whose talents weren’t appreciated in the kingdom, so she has left to leave a happy and rewarding life in the forest.  Genevieve is an “ordinary” girl who is sent to act as an ambassador for the royal couple when Bloom’s magic is missed.  Under Bloom’s mentorship, Genevieve learns the secrets that will save the kingdom and that “there is no such thing as an ordinary girl.”
