When Silva and her family visit her grandfather,they find that his health has taken a bad turn. As they struggle with this news, Silva seeks escape in books at the local library.

But she gets more than she bargained for when a magpie guides her to a magical room containing books that she can not only read, but also live in. Silva finds herself in the worlds of the characters, who turn out to be real people. People she knows.

There's a catch, though: she soon discovers that the magpie has lured her to these books for selfish and dark reasons.
