Now it is 7 minutes after midnight, and Chris stands beside a neighbor’s dead dog, Wellington, who has been speared with a garden fork. Under suspicion of the murder, the teen is determined to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington, and carefully records each fact of the crime. But the detective work, forbidden by Chris's father, takes this extraordinary teen on a thrilling journey that turns their world on end.
