After inheriting a grieving fox spirit, a Chinese American boy must learn to embrace his heritage to solve the mystery of his brother's death in this magical, action-packed middle grade fantasy.

Theo Tan doesn't want a spirit companion. He just wants to be a "normal American kid", playing video games and using cirth pendants to cast his spells like everyone else. But, when his older brother dies, Theo ends up inheriting Jamie's fox spirit, Kai.

Kai isn't happy about this either. Theo is nothing like Jamie, and the two of them have never gotten along. Yet, it soon becomes clear that something strange was going on with Jamie's internship at Reapling Corp, and the only way onto the campus is the highly competitive "Know Your Roots" summer camp program, a celebration of Chinese and Indian cultures designed to help connect students with their heritage.

Can Theo and Kai put aside their differences long enough to honor Jamie's last wishes, or will the mystery he died for remain unsolved forever?
