Evie doesn't believe in magic anymore. After all, if magic were real, her mom would still be alive. But when Evie moves to Beaumont, New York where her father has bought a withered apple orchard that the townspeople whisper is cursed, she learns about a lost girl, receives a mysterious seed, and meets a boy who claims to be dead. Before long, Evie finds herself in the middle of a fairy tale. And this one is real.
