Ginny has had enough of people telling her what to do. She never gets to have the things that she wants. She is sick of rules. So much so that she wants to live in a world with no rules—a world of freedom! However, when her wish is suddenly granted, Ginny starts to realise that “freedom” is not all that she hoped it would be and, before long, chaos ensues. Freedom Fighter is a superhero story suitable for children aged 4 upwards.
