Eleven-year-old Nathan Cole was never much of a reader-not until he discovered a mysterious bookcase hidden in the shadows of the attic. The bookcase had once belonged to his grandfather, a noted bookseller from Cambridge, Massachusetts, and it called to Nathan from the moment he first saw it-as if it had a mind of its own. Nathan soon learns that the books lining its dusty shelves have been saved for a reason: they each contain an unsolved mystery. Even more curiously, it seems that he doesn't choose the books he takes from its shelves-they choose him. And now another book is calling to him. In it is a mystery that dates back to the 1800s-the baffling account of a boxcar that seemingly vanished into thin air-from a moving train-in a town that doesn't exist. Only with the help of his best friend, Gina McDermott, can he hope to unravel a secret that has haunted a small New Hampshire town for generations. But they aren't alone. Someone is watching. And waiting.
