Amelia Hester McLeod is named after two of her mum’s favourite explorers. Two amazing, bold, awesome women: Amelia Earhart andnbsp; Lady Hester Stanhope. But Amelia herself doesn’t always feel very brave or very bright. She lives on the tiny Scottish island of Dark Muir, her mum has walked out on her and she’s about to start atnbsp; a whole new, scary school. Her dyslexia means she’s a target for the school bullies, too. When she makes a wish on her birthday to be reunited with her mum, she finds herself disappearing and reappearing elsewhere on the island, where she finds clues and snapshots of her parents’ past. Can she harness this strange magic to find her mum, wherever in the world she is? Will her Dad, sad and silent since her mum’s departure, start to pay her more attention? Will she find the courage to forge her own path, like the fearless female explorers she was named after?
