Publisher Marketing: Ephraim Appledore-Smith is an ordinary boy, and up until his father's stroke he lived an ordinary life. But all that changes when his family moves to the Water Castle-their ancestral home in the small town of Crystal Springs. Mallory Green's family has always been the caretakers of the Water Castle-and the guardians of its secrets. She has been raised to protect the legendary Fountain of Youth, hidden on the estate grounds. But ever since her mom left, she's stopped believing in magic. Will Wylie's family has been at war with the Applegates for generations, all because of the Water Castle's powerful secrets. But Will has rejected legend and magic, putting all his faith in science. When Ephraim learns of the Fountain, he's sure finding it can cure his dad. With Mallory and Will's help, the trio embarks on a mission that brings them deep into their families' shared history, through every secret room in the Water Castle, and on a quest that will blur the lines of magic and science, creativity and discovery, leaving readers left to wonder: Do you believe in the unbelievable?

Professional reviews

"Listening to narrator Chris Henry Coffey recount the escapades of young Ephraim and his unlikely compatriots in their quest to reveal the secret of MaineÕs Water Castle estate is like having a storyteller of oneÕs own. The immediacy of each moment is clear: the sadness of seeing a once vital father ravaged by a stroke, the animosity that has festered over generations among the townspeople, the taste of Needham candy, and the thrill of pooling talents to effect change. Coffey keeps to a steady pace and uses only a slight pause or emphasis at key moments. Chapters alternate between the current day and the early twentieth century, creating a double mystery. Is there truth to the stories of a youth-extending water hidden underground? What brought the Crystal Springs resort to ruin? Listeners will be eager for answers.
