As her beloved Nana Josie’s health declines, Mira begins to discover the secrets of those around her, and also starts to keep some of her own. She is drawn to mysterious Jide, a boy who is clearly hiding a troubled past and has grown hardened layers – like those of an artichoke – around his heart. As As Mira begins to plumb the depths of secrecy and grief, she will also start to embrace the wondrous and often mystical world around her…
