It tells the story of Cassandra, a girl who was given away as a baby by her wicked mother to a gypsy fortune-teller, who adopts her and bestows on her the gift of prophecy. When Cassie grows up and joins a drama school in pursuit of her dream to become a glamorous star, like her idol Vivien Leigh, she is inspired to write a fairtyale about her newlywed life in Henley. Cassie believes that through the magical secret of Scribble-Scrabble taught to her by her adoptive grandmother, she can write herself into her own happily ever after. But the magic backfires! For Cassie to write a happy ending, she must first learn lessons from the happy child she once was, who materialises to show her how to find a real happy ending to her miserable grown-up life.
