William Halloway and James Nightshade are two boys who live in the small Midwestern town of Green Town, Illinois. Born a few days apart, and just short of their fourteenth birthdays, the two boys live next door to each other and are inseparable best friends. A mysterious lightning rod salesman comes through town and strikes up a conversation with the boys, warning them that a storm is approaching.
