Anna faces new friends at school and old magic at home when her family moves in with Great Aunt Sukie.

At home with her aunt, Anna discovers Sukie can communicate with the animals in the forest across the creek. She and her new friend from school explore the ancient forest and meet the Little Man, a strange creature who knows her aunt. The Little Man claims he can save Aunt Sukie from the forest wraiths. Anna's friend does not trust him, but Anna is desperate to save Sukie and makes an uneasy alliance with the Little Man.

As her new world unravels around her and the darkness grows beyond the forest, Anna must decide when to hold on and when to let go.
