On holiday in Italy, Farhana's older brother, Jay, relentlessly teases her for being boring. Farhana is so upset – they’d always been close. So, when Jay dares her to steal a book, she gives in. Farhana feels really guilty. She wants to tell her parents, but they always seem to be arguing, and she doesn't want to make things worse. Then, strange things start happening, starting with the disappearance of the book.
