Suffering from depression and an overwhelming sense that her life is a failure, Nora Seed decides to die. Instead of quietly slipping away, she finds herself transported to a magical library that contains an infinite number of books, each representing what her life could have been if she had only made a single different choice. Faced with the opportunity to exchange her life for a new one, Nora goes on a journey through hundreds of these books to discover what makes life worth living.
