Sextonåriga Tamaras liv vänds upp och ned när hennes rike far begår självmord. Hon tvingas ut till släktingar på landet och finner där en bok som börjar fyllas med hennes egna tanker - som om hon kunde läsa framtiden. Familjeintriger, hemligheter och magi i en modernt gotisk roman.
Raised in the lap of luxury, spoiled and tempestuous sixteen-year-old Tamara Goodwin has never had to think about tomorrow. But when her world is irrevocably shaken by her father's self-imposed death, she and her mother are left drowning in debt and forced to move in with Tamara's peculiar aunt and uncle in a tiny countryside village.
Lonely and bored, Tamara's sole diversion is a traveling library. There she finds a large leather-bound book with a gold clasp and padlock, but no author name or title. Intrigued, she pries open the lock, and what she finds takes her breath away - for what's written inside is not only impossible and magical... it's her future.
