Lily loves all things dark and mysterious, so when she discovers a magic mirror in a locked room it’s like a dream come true. Or is it ...

With a new friend who needs her help, and an older brother who needs to get a life, Lily will require all eleven fingers at her disposal, plus a hefty slice of Grandad’s chocolate ganache cake, to fix a long-forgotten mystery that’s very close to home.
