After years of running from his tragic past, Jack Yale books a flight home. With him is a typewriter that is intended to be a gift for his granddaughter, Elizabeth.
The minute Elizabeth's fingers cradle the large black and cream keys the machine responses: popping, sizzling, and roaring to life with a Whiz-Whiz-BANG! Elizabeth quickly discovers the typewriter has powers beyond anything she has ever seen. The more she types, the more the machine spells out guarded secrets. Each secret leads them deeper into a haunted past. Each secret must be revealed in order to set history straight and remove a curse that has been on their family for centuries. To solve the mystery, Elizabeth Yale, alongside Jack, will have to crack the code of the Whizbang Machine. What they find challenges their most basic assumptions of their family, the history of the typewriter, and even Elizabeth's father's death. The ultimate goal is to remove the curse. The question is: will Jack and Elizabeth be able to carry out their mission?

It took so long to resolve trivial issues in this story that I felt I was being slowly killed with dialog. For instance, it took (what felt like) 10 minutes to get a gift box open. There was so much angst and drama about what might be in the box! maybe I shouldn't open it? what did Jack mean? that I wanted to tear my hair out. This is when I stopped listening and decided to return the book.
