Annie and Drew travel to England with their mom who is doing research there in a small town, Olney, that is “off the beaten path and old.” Although perfect for their mother’s research, both children are not thrilled with this prospect, especially Drew, as old to him equals boring and dull. All plans for excitement for the summer are seemingly thwarted by the fact that they left the exciting fast pace of their home city behind that was filled with fast food restaurants, sports, concerts and all of their friends. To drown out his boredom Drew spends the beginning of his vacation with his ears plugged into his headphones. Shortly after beginning their exploration, while traveling on a train, he loses his headphones which proves to be only the beginning of a notably wonderful adventure!
