by Albert A. Bell, Jr.


*Evelyn Thurman Young Reader's Award

Steve (a baseball freak) and Kendra (a sassy Sherlock Holmes wannabe) were friends before they knew they were not supposed to be.” They discover flowers on the lonely grave,” an isolated headstone in the corner of an old graveyard they pass walking home from the school bus. They quickly discover who put the flowers there, but his reasons raise more questions. Dirty tricks by a bully put the answers and their lives in danger.

     Their investigation literally tunnels through the history of Kentucky, the Civil War, slavery and the Underground Railroad and discovers secrets even their parents would prefer remain hidden.
