The Secret Garden meets Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children in this lush middle grade adventure about a girl determined to infiltrate her grandmother's enchanted garden with the help of some magically gifted friends.
Mallory Estate is the last place twelve-year-old Piper Peavey wants to spend her summer vacation. The grounds are always cold, the garden out back is dead, a mysterious group of children call the property home, and there's a rumor that Melena M. Mallory--the owner of the estate and Piper's wealthy grandmother--is a witch.
But when Piper's father falls ill, Mallory Estate is exactly where she finds herself.
The grand house and its garden hold many secrets--some of which may even save her father--and Piper will need to believe in herself, her new friends, and magic if she wants to unlock them before it's too late.
