Eleven-year-old Vhan Zeely is unhappy with her dull life and bored by what seems to be an endless summer. When the McPreveys and their two obnoxious boys move into town, however, life on 2nd Street changes forever. Vhan soon realizes her parents have been keeping a secret from her-a secret she is determined to uncover. In an attempt to unlock her family's past, however, Vhan is thrust into a world she is little prepared to understand. After her parents mysteriously disappear, Vhan and her best friend, Amy, embark on a bizarre journey through space and time. The young girls' wits and loyalties are tested as they attempt to rescue Vhan's family from the Prevaricators-evil pursuers who will stop at nothing to possess all of the special timepieces that will enable their owners to rewrite history!
