The excitement in the air is adding to the frizz in the XQ sisters? hair! In the middle of rainy season – which certainly doesn’t help either- the Beaux Bois old-timers are saying “long time no see” to Lady Di, the white lady from the ’80s.
Why the sudden comeback? Who’s behind it? Could it finally be the ghost of Doña Victoria Valderrama now that she’s actually dead? Could it be an encanta living in the balete tree? Could it just be some bitter killjoy getting in the way of courting young people?
Far be it from Xamantha, Xavanna, and their equally nosy friends to stop at idle musing! Aided by an enabling adult or two, the kids go on a stakeout that fills their guts with junk food and sinks them to the bottom of this mystery.
Not really a cross between “Fright Night” and “Dude, Where’s My Car” (but there was a fright that happened at night and, well, also, cars), this tale brings closure to a decades-old urban legend and confirmation to an equally old rumor while giving rise to a new intriguing question:
“Whose pee was it?”
Recent happenings in Beaux Bois Village need some ‘splainin’!
For instance, who or what is tormenting Michael Jack So’s dogs? Is it the same creature that is eating Dear Daphne?s tulips? It could be the same thing that broke Doris?s tentacle.
Furthermore, who or what is Doris?
For lack of better things to do, Xamantha and Xavanna Quijano aim to get to the bottom of it all. The sisters and their ragtag army of friends and frenemies loiter around their village to find out what?s going on.
But first, they need to check out the new kids on the block – and not the ones from their mom’s 30-year-old Bop either!

Incidentally, Juck isn’t the greatest at separating pretend from reality, and, soon, he has Rocky confused about the real score. Some clearing up is in order, but what will clarity do to this confounded situation?
