With a swimming medal, the key to a mansion, and a comic book about a half-man/half-rat as her only clues, a twelve-year-old girl seeks the true story of her father’s mysterious death four years earlier near an island in the Pacific Northwest.
Margaret’s father died in a mysterious drowning accident when she was eight years old. Four years later, her mother still won’t talk about it—in fact, she doesn’t talk about much of anything. But when Margaret’s mother takes her and her little sister, Sophie, to a strange abandoned mansion and puts a FOR SALE BY OWNER sign in the front yard, Margaret is determined to solve the puzzle of her family, once and for all.
Armed with three strange clues—a swimming medal, a key, and a handwritten comic book—Margaret returns to the mansion alone. With the help of Boyd, the lonely, comic-book-obsessed boy next door, she discovers that truth can be stranger than fiction—depending on who’s telling the story.
