Denise "Niecey" Lawson is an aspiring author, spelling bee champ, full-time fourth grader, and part-time detective. She and her father, Dennis, a retired San Francisco police captain, form the brain trust of D&D Investigations-the world's best father and daughter detective team. When Niecey and her best friend Mimi stumble upon a boy who has been smuggled over the border from Mexico, they are horrified to learn that the dreamy Domingo and his mother have been sold to a sweatshop operating inside an El Paso mansion. Domingo has managed to escape, and Niecey and Mimi agree to help him free his mom but are sworn to secrecy. Together, the kids uncover an evil operation run by some nefarious (one of Niecey's favorite words) characters. Despite their formidable wits and courage, the junior sleuths eventually get in over their heads. They seek the help of Captain Lawson, and D&D Investigations rides to the rescue when the "takedown" goes awry! Someone, Somewhere is a high-spirited adventure that also addresses some deeper issues. While adept at inspiring her friends to confront and overcome their fears and doubts, Denise struggles with her own personal demons after an encounter with a bully. The mission provides a true test for the private eye and her cohorts, from which they emerge stronger and wiser.
