This place is magic ... but it's not the sort of magic that comes from wands and spells ... Can piecing together the past help you change the present? Safiya and her mum have never seen eye to eye.

Her mum doesn't understand Safiya's love of gaming and Safiya doesn't think they have anything in common. As Safiya struggles to fit in at school she wonders if her mum wishes she was more like her confident best friend Elle. But then her mum falls into a coma and, when Safiya waits by her bedside, she finds herself in a strange and magical world that looks a bit like one of her games.

And there's a rebellious teenage girl, with a secret, who looks suspiciously familiar ...

A magical middle-grade book about family, friendship and finding out who you are, full of emotion and a secret fantasy world to discover. Perfect for 10-year-olds and fans of Jacqueline Wilson, Ross Welford, Kiran Millwood-Hargrave and The House with Chicken Legs. From a rising star of children's books.
