Things that go bump in the night are just the beginning when a summer film project becomes a reallife ghost story! Avery is looking forward to another summer at Grandmas farm, at least until her brother says hes too old for Kingdom, the imaginary world theyd spent years creating. Lucky for her, theres a new kid staying in the cottage down the road: a city boy with a famous dad, Julians more than a little full of himself, but hes also a storyteller like Avery. So when he announces his plan to film a ghost story, Avery is eager to join in. Unfortunately, Julian wants to film at Hilliard House, a looming, empty mansion that Grandma has absolutely forbidden her to enter. As terrified as Avery is of Grandmas wrath, the allure of filmmaking is impossible to resist. As the kids explore the secrets of Hilliard house, eerie things begin to happen, and the imaginary dangers in their movie threaten to become very real. Have Avery and Julian awakened a menacing presence? Can they turn back before they go too far?
