Afia is a young girl who dreams of being a princess but she doesn't know of any princesses who look like her. As she travels to her motherland Ghana, Afia is about to find out something truly extraordinary about her family history. Maybe, after all, princesses like Afia do exist and their stories still inspire.

This is the debut story in the Ashanti Princess and Prince book series. The purpose of this book series is to:

1. Emphasize the importance of Black representation in children's books;

2. Introduce young girls and boys of African descent to stories which allow them to relate to the main characters;

3. Empower children to develop confidence and a sense of pride in their African heritage;

4. Encourage children to learn about their family history and cultural heritage; and

5. Inspire readers to develop an interest in learning about African history and culture.
