Who is the Palacios Family?
The Palacios Family (Maureen, Jorge, Jessica, and Amelia) are the proud owners of Once Upon A Time Bookstore. They bought the store from the founder Jane Humphrey in 2003 after Jessica - then 9 years old - wrote a letter to the local newspaper asking for someone to save the bookstore.
