One dead father.
One lying mother.
After twelve-year-old Rocky overhears his mom admit that her story about his dad’s death is bogus, his trust in his one remaining parent unravels. The For-Sale sign appears on the front lawn right after the funeral, forcing Rocky to leave the house linked to so many memories of his dad.
Consumed by the secret and struggling to adjust to his new school, Rocky is startled by a familiar voice. Dashing into a restroom stall to hide, the voice of his father insists Rocky must return to his old town for answers.
Can you take advice from a dead person?
Rocky finds a real partner in a new friend, Olive, who offers to be his assistant sleuth and help him crack the secret. The pair’s schemes go bust, but they embolden Rocky to embark on a journey of risks, eavesdropping and snooping to discover the truth about his father.
