The move from his old house, near school and his best friends, to a new house across town, couldn't have come at a worse time for 10-year-old Michael. His baby sister is sick, perhaps very sick, and he is afraid she might die. The new house itself is musty and creepy; in fact, the previous owner died there alone.

When he comes across a creature, not quite human and seemingly close to death as well, Michael's world changes and is infused with hope and faith and a sense of wonderment.
