Magic Tree House
Junie B. Jones
Neily suffers from terrible nightmares since the night he discovered Carly's dead body on the bridge. Carly believed herself to be invincible, until the night she left a frantic call for help on Neily's phone. Unfortunately, Neily chose to ignore her message, and she was brutally murdered. The man arrested and convicted for Carly's murder is her cousin, Audrey's, father. Audrey does not believe that he is guilty, and with the help of Neily she begins to investigate the incidents leading up to Carly's death. They discover a web of deceit and drugs that puts them in danger of losing their lives. I must admit that I was shocked at the ending! It is certainly a page-turner.
