About the Book

Young Mary Louise is very honest and intelligent beyond her years. This occasionally caused her to disagree with her schoolmates, but she is mature enough to not be concerned by their views most of the time. Mary Louise shared a home with her mother and her grandfather, who she cherished. She is surprised one day when her grandfather sits her down and informs her that he and her mother must leave her for a time after having an unpleasant interaction with a man on their stroll. He arranges for her to board at the school, then leaves in the middle of the night with his daughter. When Mary Louise learns that her grandpa is eluding the authorities, she is first unhappy and then shocked. When the other students at the school learn about Mary Louise's position, they start to harass and tease her nonstop. Mary Louise ultimately escapes and meets a friend of her grandfather, but she also learns that the police are also after her. Mary Louise's new life with the Contents and her friend Irene starts to attract several enigmatic personalities, and it's only a matter of time before she realizes that their meeting is no accident. Mary Louise is eventually able to solve the enigma surrounding her family with Irene's assistance.
