Synopses & Reviews
Cosmo Curtroy is feeling like an outsider. Not only was he sent to a different country to go to school, where he has no friends, but he just learned that there is a curse on his family — one that caused his mother and brother to disappear.
Along with all of this, it seems that Cosmo's arrival seems to have triggered some magical and frightening occurences, including the appearance of a poltergeist and a witch.
It's up to Curtis and his aunt to unravel the mystery, if they can avoid everything going on around them, that is.
After the mysterious disappearance of both his mother and older brother, Cosmo is sent away to live with his eccentric mathematician aunt. Lonely and confused, Cosmo must also deal with being the new kid at school. Not an easy assignment! But things take a weird twist when Cosmo is visited by ghosts from the past. Ghosts who claim to need his help fighting an ancient curse!
Only in time will Cosmo learn that he is at the center of that ancient...and deadly...curse.
