What would you do if you found someone breaking into your home?  Chances are, your first inclination is to take the person in and give her a home.  Well, that is exactly what happens to Abby.  Miranda's parents take her in and give her a comfortable place to live.  As a matter of fact, Miranda is downright hostile to Abby.  But she is the only one who seems suspicious of the girl.  But when Miranda learns the truth about Abby, her feelings change.  You see, Abby's family died in a fire -- in 1693!  Abby was saved by a magical phoenix and has been time traveling ever since.  She never ages and can never die.  She is forced to roam the world forever.  And she is not happy about it.  Can Miranda find a way to help?  Will she?
