Description: When Kenneth arrives home from a high school band trip with exciting news, he finds the house empty. His parents appear to gone to a hospital in a hurry. At twilight, a strange woman appears on the street, and she might be looking for him. No doubt, there’s magic afoot.
Goodness knows, I rode enough rickety school buses on band trips to remember endlessly riding through the night, looking forward to being welcomed home. As a fan of spooky movies and TV shows, I often wondered if the house would be empty with no way to tell what had happened.
