Percy is reluctant to accompany his family to Venice for the summer until he meets Graziella, a beautiful and passionate girl who leads him into another Venice, one that tourists never see.
Venice was once a great power. Today, much of it belongs to foreigners. Through Graziella, Percy is drawn into a world where young Venetians make desperate, dangerous plans to save their city from being taken over by foreigners and tourists--outsiders, like Percy.
