Wealthy orphans Adam and Cressida Bloom couldn't be less alike. Adam can't seem to help being exceedingly ordinary whereas Cressida, his glamorous sister, has a magnificent talent--when she sings, even the birds stop to listen. Then Cressida is invited to perform and Fortescue's festival of young talents and Adam tags along. But once the children arrive at the festival, their terrific talents begin to mysteriously disappear. There's a sinister shadow that only Adam ever sees, a strange glow emanating from behind closed doors...
With the help of an erratic ex-race car driver, Amy Swift, Adam and Cressida rip-roar off through the mountains in Amy's shiny racing car, the 'Silver Swift'. Can Adam prove to everyone (including himself) that he's not as ordinary as he seems?
