Lucy Rooney is a feisty, precocious tomboy who questions everything—even God. It’s not hard to see why: a horrible accident killed her mother and blinded her father, turning her life upside down. It will take a strong but gentle housekeeper—who insists on Bible study along with homework—to show Lucy that there are many ways to become the woman God intends her to be.
Aunt Karen is taking over Lucy’s life—what’s left of it.
Middle school is hard enough, with a new set of teachers and kids and preparing for the big soccer tryouts. But now Aunt Karen has moved in, imposing wardrobe inspections, threatening to get rid of the cats, and trying to be the world’s original soccer mom. It takes all Lucy’s got just to cope.
When J.J. and Januarie are abducted by their father, Lucy mobilizes everyone to find them. Lucy’s a good detective—but she ends up a hostage too. In the fourth and last installment in the Lucy Novels, Lucy must depend on an unlikely ally to find her way out of this mess and in life.
