Jo Tiegan is an adopted 14-year-old girl living with her mother Catherine, a school principal; father Andrew, an aspiring writer; and her younger brother Royce. While shopping with her father, Jo enters an antique shop where the owner, an elderly gentleman gives her an antique mirror, insisting that she was meant to have it.
Jo gets a shock when she sees a reflection of another girl, Louisa Iredale, in the mirror and realises that the mirror is a travel device to the past. While trying out the mirror, a drum of toxic waste ends up in the school archaeology well.
