AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A girl with anime hair. A boy with a sketchbook. A forest possessed.

With a motley pack of possibly imaginary friends watching over her, Isola Wilde feels safe, loved. But even her protectors can't save her from the anguish of watching her mother's illness take over their house. Friends Grape and James help her to feel normal. New boy Edgar makes her forget for a while. But always Isola comes back to wondering: will I be next? The ghost at the window would steal Isola's last breath, and it will take all of Isola's strength to stop her.

As her magical world collides with the real one, Isola strikes a Faustian deal with a cute and fluffy gargoyle to protect herself from the fairytale evils of her world.'
