"Are you lost?" ... Amerie Errai wants to write a good story. But, as it turns out, living like an ornamental hermit deprives one of much adventure. So what's a fifteen year-old to do? Warily, Amerie steps out into a whole new world. Literally. She finds herself in a different realm, and unlike back home, she is the centre of this universe. But the spotlight is something Amerie never asked for. Yet, with a boy at school missing (one of the less annoying ones), can Amerie find the courage to save the day?
