Swallowed by a Secret
Twelve-year-old Rocky overhears his mother admit her story about how his dad died is bogus. His grief is compounded when the for-sale sign goes on the front lawn immediately after the funeral, and Rocky’s trust in his one remaining parent begins to unravel.
Consumed by the looming secret, a familiar voice inside Rocky’s head spooks him by constantly insisting Rocky must return to his old town to find the answers. Rocky is skeptical it’s a good idea to take advice from a dead person.
A smart new friend, Olive, offers to be his assistant sleuth, and together they scheme to crack the secret. Their plans go bust, but embolden Rocky to embark on the risky journey to his old home to discover the truth about the father he thought he knew.
