12-year-old Missy is sent to spend the summer with a just-discovered great-grandfather at Big Pine Lodge. There she befriends Kevin, son of the caretakers, and Jessica, vacationing there with her family. The three of them set out to discover the secret of the caves, and unwittingly discover a plot by some greedy adults who want to build a highway through the property. Using their wits and clues dropped by Missy's great-grandfather, will they be able to discover the secrets that will save Big Pine Lodge? You'll actually very much enjoy the ride as you find out.

Debra Chapoton has written a story that will strongly appeal to the pre-teen set, giving them a trio of very relatable 12-year-olds, in a set of believable circumstances as they have fun while solving the mystery. The setting is very alluring (I'd like to go to Big Pine Lodge myself) and the story keeps you involved at all times. And for anyone who's ever lost someone they love, they will thoroughly enjoy Missy's re-discovery of her father and his childhood lived at Big Pine Lodge years earlier.

I highly recommend this book to be read by pre-teens, and to be shared by their parents, as well.
