Little did she know that on the morning of her sixteenth birthday she would wake up alone. Not only alone but in a world where everything looked the same apart from there were no other people, the weather was non-descript and there was no sound. The only thing that seems normal is when Kimi returns to her bedroom. When she looks out of the window she is able to see all the comings and goings of a normal day, but why can't anyone see her? Confused and alone Kimi ends up in her best friend Clara's house where she finds out that a boy called Karl has exactly the same life as her. The bad news is he's in a different country. The story develops as the two find a way to communicate but start to realise very strange things are happening to them. Someone else is also trying to get in touch and has some life changing information to share with them both.
