There's a lot of strange stuff going on for Dax Jones. to start with there's the mysterious letter from his dad telling Dax to go to a secret location and find something from his dead mother. Perhaps it's a clue about how he became a shapeshifter?

So when his classmates are suddenly taken away 'for their own safety', Dax's fox senses tell him that all is not what it seems. If Dax continues with his quest to find out more about his mother he could be leaving his friends in danger. Is he willing to risk their lives in his search for the truth about his existence?
