Brendan Buckley is 10 years old and loves science. He even has a “confidential” notebook to keep track of his top secret scientific discoveries. Some of his other interests are Tae Kwan Do and rock collecting. His interest in rocks and minerals leads him to discover that he has a grandfather he never heard about. Brendan starts to meet secretly with him, but his mom finds out and gets angry. She refuses to answer any of Brendan’s questions about Grandpa DeBose. Why hasn't his grandpa been around? Why won’t his mom talk about him or even see him? Will Brendan’s investigative skills help him find answers to his questions?  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award nominee, 2011)
