I. Setting
a. Time
The time settings were two. The one is late 1940s and the one is at the present which is in the late 2000s.

b. Place
It was mainly in school, the “Bell Valley Middle School” there was two sides of the school the old one or the abandoned and the one is the newly constructed one. The old one is somewhat like mysterious because there was a classroom where the children in that particular class were disappeared without knowing where they go.

II. Characters

He always makes jokes or pranks to Tommy Frazer. He is scared and always freaked out when they went to the gray world.

III. Theme or Message
