Flaptekst van de roman van Mizuki Tsujimura

How can you save your friend’s life if she doesn’t want to be rescued? In a tranquil neighbourhood of Tokyo, seven teenagers wake to find the mirrors in their bedrooms are shining.

At a single touch, they are pulled from their lonely lives into to a wondrous castle filled with winding stairways, watchful portraits and twinkling chandeliers. In this new sanctuary, they are confronted with a set of clues leading to a hidden room where one of them will be granted a wish. But there’s a catch: if they don’t leave by five o’clock, they will die.

As time passes, a devastating truth emerges: only those brave enough to share their stories will be saved. At the heart of this heartbreaking, playful tale is a powerful message about the importance of reaching out, confronting anxiety and embracing human connection.
