Along with her best friend Margaret, she sets out to prove the legend false and to maybe get a peek at the boy who’s fooled everyone and captured her heart. When Ivy and Margaret end up lost, their only hope is in each other. When Ivy falls ill with a fever, a strange boy takes them in and tends to her. Overtaken by a new illness, affection of the heart, Ivy must find a way to free herself and Margaret from his hold on them if she ever wants to go home.
