What will the future be like? For Lucy, it can be a nightmare.
Lucy and her hardworking papa, Marcus, live in a hacienda in the scorching heat of the desert plains; a place they call home. Everyday they battle to grow crops. Nothing ever grows anymore and the atmosphere is unbreathable. Cities are abandoned and in ruins. But when Lucy makes a startling discovery, in the old basement of her school, everything changes. The world and their lives will be transformed forever. Question is: do you, dear reader, believe in magic?
