Gabriella "Gabs" Bryant is 14 years old. She's nervous because she's about to enter high school next year, her best friend just moved away to Texas and her relationship with her mother is bordering on chaos. But those are the least of her worries. Gabriella's life is about to change. When Danielle Johnson, pretty, confident, smart (Gabs already hates her) moves in across the street, they become friends through the unlikely help of the "terrible twins," Randy and Stanley Branson. Danielle becomes curious after Gabs tells her the urban legend about the boy in the window. A boy who has been dead for 25 years. And what happens next is something Gabs could never imagine.
