Spies. Kids. Magic.
Rachael Baptiste's mom disappeared a week ago. Nobody knows what happened.
Her second-grade classmate, Raul, breaks into Rachael's house...and tries to steal her mom's password.
When he is hunted down by giant talking dogs, Rachael follows him and discovers that Raul and her mom have a magical sickness that lets them turn into animals, or Exotics.
A group of evil Exotics, the Shadow Dogs, kidnap Rachael and Raul to a mysterious ship and try to force them to tell them her mother's secrets...but Rachael's not talking.
Instead, she's trying to find a way to escape the ship and rescue the Exotic kids trapped on board!
