So what do you do when you find a dead body? Call the police? Run away? Bury it? Who do you ask? Stella is staying with Great Aunt Louise while her mother is off trying to “find herself” but she can’t help. There is only one person Stella can turn to: Angel, a disagreeable foster child who wants nothing to do with Stella or her problems. Find out what they do with that body and how they manage to spend a whole summer by themselves, running a rental cottage business!  (South Carolina Children's Book Award nominee, 2015  Prepared by: Serena DuBose, Fairfax Elementary School, )
