Miranda dreams of disappearing. That and torturing her younger brainiac of a brother. To sidestep the risk of personal vulnerability (and her much-hated history class), she plays soccer or skips school by escaping to her favorite magic shop whenever she gets the chance.
As her truancy creates a rift between her ambitious TV producer mother and misunderstood stay-at-home dad, Miranda begins to covet the unknown destiny of strangers and questions whether she will ever have one of her own worth living.
Miranda’s relationships are laced with the strychnine of blame, envy, and doubt. So, when she finds a mystical shawl in the attic, she thinks all her dreams have come true! Her discovery initiates a free fall through time. As she navigates through the hilarious, treacherous, and heartbreaking road to maturity, the strained relationship between her and her mother ignites a troubled path to selflessness and compassion.
Can she use her present circumstances to help redeem herself from her past mistakes? If Miranda cannot find her way back home, she might be forever stuck in time.
