Maxine Hill is an inquisitive fourth grade student. She spends a lot of time reading, talking to her best friend, Amanda, and playing with her cat, Amos. She also enjoys crossword puzzles and volunteers at a local food pantry with her parents each month. But, Maxine is on a personal crusade to solve the mystery of her neighbor, Mrs. Sullivan. Nice, quiet, friendly Mrs. Sullivan seems a bit nervous when she talks to Maxine. Why? Why is she so friendly, but so uneasy?
