Story Summary

Ben and Jamal plan a midnight ride on their skateboards one last time at McCrary Bottle Works before it is demolished. But when Jamal shows up at 1:00 AM, he finds only the ghost of a young boy and two thieves looking for legendary treasure hidden in the building during Prohibition. With the help of the ghost, Jamal outwits the two thieves, discovers the gold and becomes the “skateboard millionaire,” allowing him to help the ghost’s poor aged sister and giving closure to “Billie” who mysteriously disappeared during the roaring 20s.
