Raised in the lap of luxury, spoiled, tempestuous sixteen-year-old Tamara Goodwin has never wanted for anything - and never had to think about tomorrow. But when her world is irrevocably shaken by her father's self-imposed death, she and her mother left devastated, drowning in debt and forced to sell everything and move to the country.
Stuck in the tiny house with her strange uncle and aunt - and her mother locked in the back room, grieving - Tamara's tomorrows suddenly seem bleak and grey. But soon, a large leather-bound book with a locked gold clasp that she discovers in a traveling library promises to rock her universe - for what's written inside is not only impossible and magical... It's her future.
