A light mystery-romance angled for girls begins to unfold as the Wentone-17 year old, fashion-minded Kim, her hard working mother and young Gu and David, suddenly find themselves heirs to a mansion in Connecticut. Moving from their small Chicago apartment is a joy, and life in Connecticut holds its promise. But a Mr. Kittredge seems to have a claim on the house too, through a loan Kim's actor grandfather had gotten from him. To scare Kittredge off, Kim's friends ""plant"" a ghost. The works, but with unexpected effects that create even greater rewards for everyone concerned.
