One Spring in Cherryville

Mitch and his friends live in Cherryville, a rust-belt American town that has gone to seed. One day, while exploring an old, abandoned factory, Mitch and his friends discover a buried secret that just might change their lives forever. But in Cherryville, where everyone knows you by name, secrets are hard to keep. And the greatest secret of all, a black stain on Cherryville’s past, is waiting there for them to uncover.
