In a town which could be your town, something strange has happened. After the rain, the canal broke its banks, a lot of debris got shifted and when a holy statue burst up through the floor of 12 year old Veronica Sheehan's bedroom, no one was more surprised than she was. With the enthusiastic support of best friend Zelda, the two girls set about using their new found skills to help their ailing community. The young people of the town tell us the story in their own words, showing us their parents, teachers, friends and enemies, as an entire population finds itself hungering unknowingly for something magical to come into their lives.
When the story reaches its dramatic conclusion only Ron will have the power to turn things round and change a life for the better, but will she have the courage to do it?
