Battle's brother Nick left home when she was in high school. She'd always looked up to him, and now she's spending the summer with him in Portland before she starts college there in the fall. Nick is living in a house with an eclectic group of folks, most who are involved in a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. It's a summer of discovery for Battle--maybe she isn't who she thought she was, and maybe her brother Isn't either. Add that to her complicated interactions with the other house residents, and Battle's life turns into quite the roller coaster of hopes, betrayals, disappointments, and possibilities. Sequel to Empress of the World.
