Spencer has to return.

He knows it’s dangerous, but he needs to retrieve what he left behind.

Discovering the secrets of the antique couch changed what started as a rotten summer. On this second adventure, will their wishes come true? Will they be able to get back to the mysterious under-the-couch world, and return home safely?
