Story Summary

Twelve year old Ben, the school dork, loves the prettiest girl in the school and writes a letter to her which is to be placed in a time capsule. Nine years later when he returns for the opening of the time capsule, the school has been replaced by a shopping mall and he is the only one to come back ... except a girl whose hair falls like the golden tale of an angel's horse.
