10-year-old Bee Ling lives a privileged life in 1940s colonial Singapore. She attends an English Catholic girls' school and is waited on by three Amahs, or maids. Her biggest problem is her beautiful elder sister, Ying, who is popular in school and favoured by their mother.

When the Japanese attack Singapore, Ying is killed in an air raid. As Bee Ling struggles to come to terms with Ying's death and the new circumstances of her life during the Japanese Occupation, Ying returns as a ghost.

The book is a work of fiction based on the actual historical events of the bombing of Singapore and the Sook Ching massacre.
