Mo and her best friend Dale live in Tupelo Landing, North Carolina. It is the start of summer and these two eleven-year-olds have no plans bigger than watching Dales brother race stock cars and helping out at Mos family diner. Their summer plans quickly grow complicated after a member of their small-town community is found dead. When Dale is considered a suspect and Mos adopted father disappears, the kids become increasingly entangled in the murder investigation. Mo is a great character with a funny sense of humor. You will like this book for the unusual setting, the surprising twists and the fast-paced adventure, but you will love this book for Mo: a terrific main character with a funny sense of humor and irrepressible spirit.  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award nominee, 2014)
