Sports obsessed Sadie and cat loving, bookworm Moya have been best friends since they were babies growing up together on the grounds of Blackwater Castle in County Cork. But their busy lives playing football with Ballycastle Gaels, the local GAA club, and having fun with their friends are about to become A LOT more complicated as their 13th birthdays approach. What exactly is a Sheela na Gig stone that seems to be so significant for some? Why is Hanora, Sadie's grandmother, behaving in such a peculiar way? And why are boys SO annoying? As Sadie and Moya learn about the ancient history, archaeology, and legends of their village they find that there is a great deal more to Castletownroche than they had realised.
