Emily Conn is spending her last summer before starting school. She doesn't feel ready and looks forward to the coming year with dread.
The lazy summer days begin with a nasty accident, but life becomes more fun than Emily could ever have imagined when her older cousin Brad comes to visit from Michigan. Mystery and intrigue prevail as the summer progresses. Finally things become so involved that the sheriff pays a visit to the Conn home to try to unravel the events that have culminated in a costly fire in the little community known as Mare Creek.
