A girl named Cassandra (Cass for short) is given a box called The Symphony of Smells by her substitute grandfathers, who take care of Cass after she was found with no parents. Cass is a misfit at school, and she soon meets another misfit, Max-Ernest, a boy who's parents couldn't decide on a name for him, so named him both, and are divorced but live in the same house. They both explore The Symphony of Smells, which is a strange box of tubes with scents encased inside them. The smells lead them to a secret about a dead magician, Pietro Bergamo. As they learn more, they discover that they are much further away from finding thes secret than they think, and it's much more dangerous if you know it.
