Picking Up Penniesby J.D. Wellander
Lucie and Avalon have just finished school, and it's time for summer
break. They are ready for three months of fun and adventure. Little do
they know, danger is about to spoil their plans. In their small town
(where everybody knows everybody), three crimes shock the neighborhood
and set everyone on edge. First, there is a liquor store robbery,
followed quickly by an act of arson. In both of these cases, the
criminal is brought to justice. It's none other than Bob Harden, a known
villain and misfit. When local boy Charlie goes missing, though, Bob is
not so easy to blame. It might take some sleuthing to solve this one!
Never ones to back down from adventure, Lucie and Avalon decide to
search for the missing boy. The clues are sparse, beyond an odd trail of
pennies leading down to the local lake. Soon, the girls are in
dangerous circumstances they never expected. Still, they press on, brave
as ever, in search of Charlie as they struggle to save summer.
