IN A NUT SHELL: When David Anthony’s best friend moves out and Jenny moves in, David faces a miserable summer. His only choice is to unite with the quirky girl so he can explore the ravine or spend his vacation alone and at the mercy of the neighborhood bully.
However, the pull of local lore is stronger than his dislike for girls and David reluctantly befriends Jenny. Together they set out to solve the mystery surrounding the abandoned boxcar and the ghost who inhabits it.
