Wilson’s name, just like her life, is anything but normal. She lives in a house on wheels with her parents and they have to move to a new town every few months. She finds this extremely annoying, almost as annoying as Errol, who has recently decided that Wilson is his friend and has to accompany him on silly outings like bird watching.

Wilson expects this town to be as boring as all the others until she discovers a secret - a wonderful and extraordinary secret that must stay hidden. But someone sinister is lurking in the shadows, determined to get revenge. Suddenly danger is much closer than Wilson ever thought possible...
