Middle school changes rock two friends in this curious story. Kind Asha, voiced in a solemn tone by Subhadra Newton, feels adrift when her best friend, Sam, switches to an elite private school. Their friendship developed early when they easily made space for each other's autistic traits. But Sam, portrayed by Gary Tiedemann with heavy doses of the bewilderment adolescence requires, is supposed to be putting all of his "issues" behind him if he's to succeed at Castleton Academy. When he befriends the cruel girl who lives in Donnybrooke, the mansion that is Asha's obsession, he finds himself quickly losing control and putting Asha at risk. The mansion also has a point of view in this story, and Daniel Henning brings its perspective alive with a haughty lilt and catty commentary, making it a warm presence in a sometimes chilling story.
