Sammy accidentally makes a deadly mistake, but all clues point to her nemesis, Heather, and she gets blamed. As Sammy struggles with her conscience, she should confess, but there's a certain justice in Heather finally getting what she deserves, and she gets distracted helping an ailing senior citizen in her fight against urban renewal. There's a local council member who seems to be on both sides of the issue, and neighborhood vandalism that could be a clue to what's really at stake. While Sammy's trying to sort out those truths, her own haunt her, along with her feelings for Casey, Heather's brother, whom she's agreed to attend the Farewell Dance with on a "non-date".

"Middle-grade readers will relish the gory, scary details of caring for big cats....Solid book bait." (Kirkus Reviews)
"This fast-moving read offers suspense, adventure, and a sympathetic protagonist." (Booklist)
We listen to these books on trips in the car. My 14 year old son, and 12 and 10 year old daughters love them as do I.
