She is a girl made entirely of stone and she has been resting on the floor of an anciet sea for a thousand years. One might not think such an existence very exciting, but when a boy named Niko pulls her from the waves, Pearl's life is just beginning. On an adventure that carries her to an exotic island grotto, through a bloody revolution, into a rat-infested tomb, and finally, to a high mountain paradise, Pearl undergoes a magical transformation. What she will become depends upon her courage, her desires, and her faith in the very stars that seem to be guiding Pearl to her final destiny.
