SUMMARY!!

Dear readers,


It is the summer of 1936, Abilene the young daughter of a Railroad drifter travels to Manifest, Kansas, a struggling small Mining town, in the midst of the Great Depression.

Here with the help of a compass, a strange mysterious old lady, and kind bootlegger named Shady, she discovers secrets about her Father's past. A sack of flour, a very old letter from a kid Ned, a map, and a spy named the "Rattler" all present clues to her search.


On the morning on the last day of school for Abilene; she is assigned an essay about one of her personal life experiences. Excited for the summer Abilene starts an adventure with her two new friends: Ruthanne and Lettie! With thoughts of the Rattler bouncing around in their heads, the friends set off to the woods, where they meet mean Mr Underhill and Abilene loses her compass! Could he be the Rattler?

Thank's to the Mysterious old lady, she recovers her compass and uncovers the story of the railroad boys named Ned and and Jinx, the recipient of the letter!


Local news reporter Hattie May, reports on Abilene exploits and the town's reaction to them; which sparks a series of threatening letters left in the girl's tree house! More determined than ever Abilene searched high and low for mentions of the Rattler! Thank's to the Mysterious old Lady, Abilene, learns about her Father's past and his connection to the Rattler. More understanding of her Fathers reasons for sending her to Manifest, Abilene is reunited with her Father. I guess this Adventure would make a great Essay, Abilene thought so too, as this book tells her story from her perspective.


Ta ta for now,

The Rattler.


P.S. Abilene did such a good job with her research and detective skills, she is now the head reporter of the Manifest newspaper! She also found out her compass was Ned's old one.
