When something goes wrong in the town of Clarience, Ivy is blamed for it. Ivy is a girl who just wants to be normal, but no one will let her. She has one friend named Ruth, who is a beauty-type girl that people think is dumb, but she is the second smartest person in the school, as Ivy is the first. Ivy's father died in a car crash she luckily survived, and her mom has a rare disease that makes her extremely tall. Ivy and Ruth end up away from Clarience and end up by a tower, where the magic begins.
