Chaya Margolis is a sensitive and creative girl. She says the right thing, does the right things for everyone else. She lives for the stories that she is always writing because the world she creates shelters her from all the pain and disappointment she experienced as a child.
Chaya has a secret. She seems to not only be at ease in her story world, but in the world of the dead. Suddenly, along came these dead spirits who put her on trial for not walking among the living. What verdict will they bring forth? Will Chaya survive having them excavate what she has tried so hard to keep buried? Or will the dead teach her how to live?
