Fourteen-year-old Meg Rowlands is angry. A new foster child has arrived after her mum promised no more. Mirabel is no ordinary child, but no one other than Meg seems able to see it. Suddenly time isn't working properly ... someone seems to be stealing memories. Even Meg doesn't realise the full horror until her mum disappears. She is left with Mirabel and her best friend, Will, and together they must find the courage to fight back before everything they hold dear is lost forever.Inspired by the dramatic north east coast of England and the true story of a foster child who arrived at midnight, Janet Blackwell weaves a storyteller's magic.
