Tressa Jackson, a girl kept indoors for most of her life by her overprotective parents, finds out that her mother is suffering from an unknown disease, such that the doctors don't even know what's happening. But with the help of an old storybook, her mother's family heirloom, she thinks she knows where to find the cure for her mother. Thus, she sets out for an adventure while dragging her childhood best friend Jamey Hoods with her. All the while running away from a criminal organisation trying to kidnap her for ransom. But there is more to what meets the eye. Deeper secrets that everyone is hiding. Secrets that may change Tressa's whole life as she knows it and her view of the world.
