Isabelle Tresdon’s hair has just sprouted a silver strand. "Bleeding pink dust and sparking like a firecracker," it has been nothing but trouble. Growing tired of her "granny hair," she wishes it gone. However, this brings about dire consequences.

Then Belle learns she has five days until the strand sucks away her magic...and her life. She meets two masterminds (from the Mastermind Academy) who trick her into a deal that might save her life, if it doesn’t kill her first. But is that the only thing at stake?
