In assured, inquisitive tones, Cherise Boothe unfurls a clever middle-grade mystery featuring intriguing characters and a town with a challenging history. When Candace moves to Lambert, South Carolina, for the summer with her mother, she uncovers a letter containing a puzzle and a request for the reader to right a decades-old wrong against a young woman and her family. Boothe's pacing is well suited to Johnson's style, which unveils elements from the past with reverence while making clear their impact on the future. Boothe deftly portrays Candace and her friend Brandon’s enthusiastic sleuthing and enlivens a varied cast. Her narration maintains listeners’ attention throughout Johnson’s story of pain, hope, and growth. K.S.B. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2018]
