'Sometimes it sucks being the youngest sister. I mean your scope for originality is totally limited. And it doesn’t matter what you do, you’ll always be the baby of the family. Don’t get me wrong, my sisters are awesome…but every sidekick eventually wants to be the super hero…’
Amy is thrilled when she wins a scholarship to a summer-camp for young scientists in Geneva. Between Emlynn acting distracted, and more than slightly obsessive over her new supernatural duties, and Grace avoiding the vicarage entirely in favour of spending all her holidays at her University in Cornwall, things have been kinda dull lately. Amy is ready for an adventure of her own.
On the shore of Lake Geneva, gathered together with other brilliant young minds, Amy is about to find out that she may have bitten off more than she can chew. Almost exactly two hundred years before, another group of young and brilliant people gathered here - in the ‘Year without a Summer’...
As Amy is pushed and pulled between two new friends, she starts to wonder just how safe the camp really is. Strange things are happening. An inexplicable illness is striking down both teachers and students, and there are shapes in the night that stalk between the cabins and the lake shore.
Now that Amy is finally the heroine in her own mystery, is she strong enough to find the answers alone?
