“That is the strangest thing about the world: how it looks so different from every point of view.”
Liesl is mourning the loss of her father while she is locked up in the attic by her stepmother. She's all alone until a ghost, Po, comes to visit her. Liesl can't quite figure out what Po is, but she is happy to have the company. Po has a message from Liesl's father which will force her out of the attic and back to her childhood home in order to reach the willow tree. Meanwhile, Will works for an apprentice, but he often stops across from the house with the girl in the attic watching her and wondering about her. He's on an important mission to deliver powerful magic when he takes a chance stopping by the house to catch a glimpse of the girl. Will has a mix-up and the box can't be delivered, but through a series of strange happenings Liesl and Po cross paths with Will and their journey begins together. Of course, an angered alchemist and a furious stepmother are just two of the forces trying to stop the trio from reaching their destination. Will Liesl reach the willow? What has happened to the box with powerful magic in it? You will have to read this story to see how it all works out!
