KEYES AND THE SISTERS OF MERCY.
New York : Alfred A. Knopf,
IL 5-8 RL 6.0
got herself into a bit of trouble at school and is now required to do community
service to make up for it. She’s supposed to be working at the church
to stay out of trouble – not to get into trouble. The problem is
that right in the middle of scrubbing the dirt off the stained glass Baby
Jesus, Father Mayhew accuses Sammy of stealing his favorite cross.
It looks bad for Sammy because the only people in the church are Father
Mayhew and Sammy. Now how could anyone steal from Father Mayhew?
He just isn’t the type of person you would steal from. It’s not that
he’s big and mean. It’s just that he’s so priestly. Not like
some of the other priests Sammy has known. Now Sammy is
on a quest to prove her innocence. When more things come up missing,
the case gets more and more twisted. Who could be stealing?
Could it be the homeless girl who comes to the soup kitchen, one of the
nuns who run the kitchen, or even the merry Sisters of Mercy who are visiting?
