Publisher Comments:

Christina lives in a big, old stone mansion on the edge of a dark forest surrounded by barbed wire. Deep within the forest is the laboratory where her father works—and where her mother was blown to bits years ago. Christinas father knows just how dangerous the world can be, so he keeps her safe at home, forbidding her from talking to the very interesting orphans down the road. But when an orphan boy named Taft talks to her, shes thrilled to help him search for a secret tunnel. But soon she discovers theres more to the orphanage, the lab, and the mystery of her mothers accident than she ever suspected. Sinister things are in the works—and the secret of zoom is the most dangerous secret of all!

Synopsis:

A mystery involving strange explosions, hidden tunnels, and . . . singing orphans?

Synopsis:

Christina lives in an old stone mansion on the edge of a forest surrounded by barbed wire and signs that read TRESPASSERSWILL BE BOILED. Deep within the forest is the laboratory where her father works—and where her mother was blown to bits years ago.

Christina is not supposed to talk to the orphans down the road. But when an orphan boy named Taft tells her of a secret tunnel, she finds it and helps him escape. Soon she and Taft discover there is far more to the orphanage and the mystery of her mothers supposed death than they ever suspected.
