Nothing ever goes right the first time. So, of course one tries again.
The story thus far...
Grace and Simon, two teenage tearaways, have discovered a passage to Reality in the basement of The tré (a tiny theatre in their miniscule town of Otterstow). Unfortunately, they have accidentally trapped themselves and cannot return, although they do not seem to be in any hurry to do so.
Ignatius (the mayor of Otterstow) suspects this is the case and has enlisted the aid of the parents; Slide, Sandra, Pete and Gina. None of the adults have figured out how to open the passage, which seems to involve a mysterious box that they cannot open.
What's going on right now:
Grace and Simon are exploring the Rialto, which is the theatre on the other side of the passage.
Grace has convinced Simon into taking a bath with her.

"That big honker of yours poked me in the eye," Grace grumbled, covering her eye.
"Sorry," Simon muttered.
They sat in silence and looked at each other. At first the silence was uncomfortable, but Simon's smile caused Grace's giggle.
They tried again and did it properly.
"We shouldn't be doing this, to be honest," Simon reiterated.
"Oh, stop it," Grace answered. "I've already told you, nothing's going to happen. We're going to take a bath together, use that fur dryer and then get some kip."
"Right. We're just taking a bath . . . and kissing."
"Oh, right. And kissing."
They kissed again.
"But that's all," Grace said, breathlessly. "Nothing more."
"Nothing more," confirmed Simon.
