Wax - Gina Damico
Paraffin,Vermont is home to the Grosholtz Candle Factory and all of its secrets.
Poppy Palladino is known around town for her terrible accident on national television. (Think American Idol gone wrong. Yes, there was blood.) She's picked on by Dud. One day there is an exact replica of her made out of wax left outside. Poppy knows it has to have come from Grosholtz Candle Factory. While snooping around during a factory tour, Poppy stumbles upon an old woman making candle figurines. She's given an unusual candle as she runs out of the room.
That evening, Poppy discovers a naked young man in the trunk of her car. He's made of wax and is alive. (She tells her parents that she's found a foreign exchange student for them.) There is also a fire at the candle factory that evening and Poppy is seen on the tape running from the building.
Poppy and Dud team up to find out what is really going on in their town.
