When she's fed up, Enna doodles. This time it's a scribbly, hunchbacked, squatting figure. Just the way she feels, in fact. And then the figure winks at her. It speaks, and jumps off the page. It's alive, with a mind of it's own. Will it be her friend? She needs one. Or will it make things worse?

When Enna's little brother vanishes, she has to follow him to the place the doodle comes from - which is a very strange place indeed.
