New Town. New Friend. New Ghost?

Forced to leave everything in London behind, Pete is starting a new life in Clydebank. On the bright side: there's a real-life bomb shelter in his garden, and he makes a new best friend to share it with. He'd even be OK with the girl next door crying all the time -- except there is no house next doorÂ…

It seems Beth has returned from the Second World War for a reason. Can Pete help her to solve a mystery that has lain hidden since the Clydebank Blitz?
