Seventeen year old Jo Greer's been having nightmares ever since her grandmother died a year ago, and this summer they've been getting worse. Sometimes when she wakes up now, she's not sure what's real and what isn't.
While helping with last minute cleanup for her cousins' annual Harvest Faire, she loses track of an entire morning. And when her friend Aidan shakes her awake, she finally admits how bad it's gotten and how terrified she is.
A few minutes later her friend Young Tom, a ten year old boy who lives near the farm and helps with everything at Faire, seems to change for a moment right before her eyes, and then he starts her on a quest to unravel the mysteries about her grandmother's death, her father's disappearance, and her self.
