The townspeople of Calico believe in the legend of the Soul Fireā€”orbs of light dancing through the night sky, believed to be the souls of dead ancestors watching over the town. But when young Fiona Gan comes to town with her dad, she learns the amazing truth: these "fireballs" are actually the light from lanterns carried by mysterious rabbit-like creatures as they leap across rooftops! Leaping with them is the peculiar street boy Jaden, who rarely speaks and claims to come from the moon. But the games may be coming to an end, because Fi and her dad are not the only newcomers to Calico... when a creepy corporation starts bulldozing the nearby forests, she finds herself uncovering a whole world of secrets, and drawn into Jaden's battle for the soul of a community.

Diana Thung's debut Top Shelf graphic novel is a true adventure, rooted in the diverse local traditions of Asian festival culture, with a modern sensibility and a hint of magic.
