Synopsis from Fantastic Fiction

When Mia’s grandfather mysteriously goes missing, Mia and her mother immediately rush down to stay with her grandmother and offer support. With no friends and no internet access in the little seaside village where her grandparents live, Mia is bored and lonely – until she makes friends with Dee, the daughter of a fisherman from a nearby island, and Peter, who is on holiday with his parents. Things are looking up until Dee is worried by a severe storm that doesn’t seem to exist for Mia. It’s almost as though the two friends are living in different worlds – or different times! Mia starts to investigate and begins to wonder – did her grandfather choose to leave, or is he lost in time?
