Claire is a special little girl who can see things that others cannot. Her parents frequently bring visitors to her house and use Claire and her special ability to their advantage. But one day her entire life changes when Claire overhears a secret conversation that terrifies her: she is not who she thought she was. A special charm, found in the forest, and a new friend will guide Claire to a past that she doesn’t remember and an adventure that she will never forget.
