Pram Bellamy is special; she has the ability to talk to ghosts. She doesn't have too many friends among the living and she never knew her mother, but that's all right. She has her books, she has her aunts, and she has her best friend, the ghostly Felix. Then Pram meets Clarence, a boy from school who has also lost a parent and is looking for answers. Together they arrive at the door of the mysterious Lady Savant, who promises to help. But this spiritualist knows the true nature of Pram's power, and has plans for her.
