Jessie Alden thinks her days of solving mysteries are over. With her new role at the student newspaper, as well as classes, friends, and boys, there's a lot to keep up with. And Jessie always likes to be prepared. But when a new boy at school comes to her with information about strange things taking place at his parent’s business, and she also finds out the club she’s writing her first feature on seems to know something about it, Jessie realizes her story is much bigger than she thought—and she can’t help but get to the bottom of it.
About the Author
Gertrude Chandler Warner grew up in Putnam, Connecticut. She wrote The Boxcar Children because she had always dreamed about what it would be like to live in a caboose or a freight car—just as the Aldens do. When readers asked for more adventures, Warner wrote more books—a total of nineteen in all. After her death, other authors have continued to write stories about Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny Alden, and today The Boxcar Children® series has more than one hundred books.
