When Silly is brought into her sister’ world, the truth is more exciting than she ever imagined. The girls have discovered magic deep inside their old house that gives them what they truly need: an escape full of wondrous secrets and adventure. But it soon becomes clear that there are some secrets that the rest of the family would prefer to keep hidden- and knowing the truth could change everything.
