An ancient myth threatens a powerful new friendship in this debut middle grade fantasy packed with Hugo Cabret charm.

The City is the only home that Ellie has ever known.

Ellie knows the boy is innocent, but in order to save him, she must prove who he really is—even if that means revealing her own dangerous secret.Fans of Wildwood and The Mysterious Benedict Society will be enthralled by this inventive and adventurous take on a modern classic.
