Summary

From one of Australia's most renowned children's authors, this is a story about coming home when you didn't even know that was where you belonged.

When Quil Medway gets on the train, she thinks she knows where and how her journey will end - at camp with another school holiday spent surrounded by people, but feeling alone.

Quil doesn't know how wrong she is. She doesn't know anything about the shop at Hoopers Bend, or a bitter, prickly woman called Baile, or a little black and white dog who at this very moment is chewing through a rope so he'll be free to answer a call that only he can hear.

She doesn't know about the magic.

But it won't be long now....
