Stevie is not her sister Jodieís first
choice for house sitter but itís the only choice Jodie has
at the moment. The sisters have very little in common. So
Stevie moves into her sisterís house while Jodie is away on
a new job. Itís perfect for Stevie because she needs a place
to live and she needs a job.
Stevie reads and writes songs her first
weeks house sitting. She gets a job in a restaurant singing.
The best part is that food is part of her pay. Life is good.
The odd thing is the ring of foot-high
mushrooms growing in the garden. Stevie decides they are
unusual but nothing to worry about. Until Stevie sees a man

On her last night before heading back

her rescue when the house is broken into. Stevie and Adril
spend her last night in the house together and Stevie wishes
they could be together for more than one night. Can fairy
