Jason gives an overview of the book:

On an otherwise normal 4th grade school field trip, Rebecca gets separated from her classmates. But when she slips in the dark and falls down a hole, she ends up in the land of here, an enchanted kingdom that is suffering from a powerful curse…everyday is Halloween. Ghosts, ghouls, werewolves, skeletons and a host of other baddies have turned the once beautiful kingdom into a spooky landscape. Unfortunately, Rebecca’s problems have only just begun for when she landed in here she also landed on Gertrude, the kingdom’s witch, breaking her wand and the one chance to lift the curse. Now Rebecca must get Gertrude’s wand fixed, avoid getting eaten (or worse), and find a way home all before the sun sets. Because here needs a real name or it will cease to exist forever.
