*Inspiration based on the anime film, When Marnie Was There



Kassy's life is not going well, and she feels the world is against her for no reason except for the fact she was born. She doesn't feel as if she belongs anywhere, and she constantly has dreams of a friend who never leaves her. On a field study in California, Kassy comes across a mansion that has been left abandoned for years since it was sold by a rich family. After sneaking there at night, she comes across a fantasy beyond belief. A boy resides in that house, and he is yearning to get free from his abusive father and older brothers since his mother has been away. His name is Michael. The two become friends very quickly, and Michael teaches Kassy that even though life may treat your poorly, the grass is always greener on the other side. Kassy also comes to find that Michael may not be the person she thought he was.


From the author who brought you The Queen's Magician, Alexander, and 66 Days with Michael.
