By Nicola Wilson

Deano's never met his grandmother, Ellen.

But his mother's committed suicide and he's been placed in her care.

Alone together they each occupy their own imaginary worlds.

Ellen sees things - a bear in a white anorak, Victorian chimney sweeps, the disembodied head of Ian Beale.

Deano, used to spending hours on his computer, is missing the imaginary world he created on Second Life.

Then his avatar turns up in his new bedroom and their adventures begin again.

When Deano and Ellen's imaginary worlds collide, a dark and tragic tale unfolds.
