I didn't always live here. Not so long ago I was living in a thriving metropolis with more than one coffee shop on each block and four full bars of reception. I went to Heathmont High School, home to one thousand students, two best friends, a deeply average orchestra, and one cursed statue. Well, allegedly. Reece still isn't used to living in the small beachside town of Hamilton- she misses her old school, her old friends and her old life. She can't go back and she can't move forward- nothing feels right anymore. Not that she's trying very hard-she hasn't even unpacked yet, and the only new friend she's made is a middle-aged barista. But when Reece inherits a strange artefact that belonged to her beloved grandmother, she begins to unravel a mystery that might change the way she feels about everything around her, including her charismatic classmate Gideon.
