Sixteen-year-old Anna Grey has the personality of an online encyclopedia crossed with a leashed mini bulldog. Anna is about to discover that she has a special gift. The 'gift' doesn't compute well and her orderly little world is about to be turned upside down. Anna is about to discover that she can see the dead ...speak to the dead and crush (blush) on the dead. With her two mismatched best friends by her side, drag queenish Dylan Ray and fragile butterfly lady Jacqui Van Eden, Anna inadvertently summons Leo the ghost of an Australian WW1 teenage soldier. Leo is confused and stuck. He is pining for a love lost and is a little on the nose. Being with the living is getting harder for Leo to achieve and he is scared he will soon end up as a bootstrap with an earlobe before his mystery is solved. Armed with their technological devices, the three travel back virtually through history to unearth why Leo has one foot in No Man's land and a bum cheek on Anna's good couch. This is going to require more than facts and figures ... it's going to require HEART!
