Due to lack of space in the sleepy hollow elementary, Mr Morton’s class had to shift to the basement which was haunted by ghosts which were visible only to Nina and her friends Jeff and Cassidy. The ghost and the children had become friends.
It was Nina’s birthday party. Jeff was not invited since it was to be a girls sleepover and hence Jeff planned to scare the party guests. However Jeff was caught by Nina.
Nina however forgot about the necklace which the ghost named Sadie had given her. It was said that if someone takes something belonging to a ghost, the ghost also follows that person. There was no problem if the ghost attended the party but if the ghost went out of the party for a long time, it would be lost forever.
Nina thereafter went to the elementary and tried to sneak inside but was pushed out by Mr Morton. It was getting late and Sadie was rolling with the wind since she was already weak. However with the help of other ghosts, Nina managed to open the door and pushed Sadie into the basement and Sadie was healthy again.
