Mickey Warbury was an imaginative, yet fairly miserable twelve year old girl with an ever moving travel writer as her Mother. When they came to a nearly uninhabited town in Wales, Mickey decides it's high time for an adventure, and sets out to explore the land surrounding their temporary home. What she finds is far beyond what her imagination could have brought her- a little girl trapped in the basement of an old abandoned house, for reasons Mickey can't understand. This girl is unlike anyone Mickey has ever met, and a bond is quickly formed between them. Sadly, things aren't that simple, and Mickey uncovers secrets that will leave her haunted.
