Adventure, mystery and just the right amount of creepiness imbues this unforgettable tale of 12-year old loner, Ravani, who happens to see out his bedroom window seven children arriving at the derelict house next door being dropped off and left at midnight. Who could they be and where are the adults? Mysteries aplenty are prevalent in Ravani's town called Slaughterville and wouldn't it be great if he could have a friend to share the discoveries. This is Gemeinhart's best and not to be missed!
