First Ginger notices the odd woman staring at her in a restaurant. Next she sees the woman parked in front of her school and near her home. Mysterious telephone calls unnerve Ginger even more, especially after her parents leave town on business. When the woman finally corners Ginger at the bus stop, she divulges an unbelievable secret. While Ginger struggles with the woman's strange information, she is involved in a school controversy. Her favorite teacher, Mr. Wren, is in danger of losing his coaching job due to accusations by an angry parent. Ginger has evidence that would help Mr. Wren, but if she presents it, her self-employed mother and sister will lose their most important customer, along with needed income. While Ginger is en route to Mr. Wren's school-board hearing, the strange woman confronts her again—this time with a deadly threat. Suspense is interwoven with issues of loyalty and honor as Ginger desperately tries to save both her identity and her life.

      This book is Astounding! It is so interesting. It's about a girl who is being followed by a woman that claims she is her real mother and the girl was adopted. Is she lying? This book is tricky so read carefully! Okay- Bye.
