Maxine Hill is a typical 4th grade student with a little cat named Amos. Maxine and Amanda Grayson have been best friends since kindergarten and plan to go skating today to celebrate the last Saturday of summer vacation. In the meantime, Maxine is beginning to notice some strange things about her neighbor, Mrs. Sullivan.
Is it her imagination or is there a sensible explanation for Mrs. Sullivan’s behavior? Maxine wants answers!
Maxine’s mother has told her daughter more than once, “Max, you ask so many questions about people, places and things. Maybe you should be a detective.” Maxine smiled and said to herself, Hmm. I think I like that. It would be the best job ever!
