After the sudden death of their parents in the jungles of Central America, twelve-year-old science geek Andora 'Andi' Boggs and her diva teenaged sister, Bethany, move to rural Killdeer, Ohio to live with their eccentric twenty-something aunt. And while the timeworn house has been home to the Boggs family for generations, Andi feels far from at home. Exploring the attic in her grief, she discovers proof of another Andora Boggs in the family tree hidden in a Depression-era trunk. Despite the meddling of the citizens of Killdeer, Andi and her new friend, Colin Carter, are determined to find out who this first Andora was, how she vanished, and why no one in town wants to talk about her. As more and more unanswered questions pile up, Andi and Colin must decide who they can trust with their secrets and who is interested in Andora's story for the wrong reasons.

    I loved this book! It truly was unexpected. It's one of those kinds of book, that when you finish reading it, you still are thinking about the characters.

                This was such a sweet and sad story. Andi or Andora is a curious 12 year old. After the death of her parents she moved in her aunt's house. Andi wanted her own bedroom and her aunt, Amelie made a compromise by saying if you help clean the attic, you can have your own room. So Andi just agreed, when they were cleaning the attic, Andi saw a trunk with Andora scribbled on it. Andi got curious because it had her name on it. So with the help with her friends she is trying to figure this mystery out. I enjoyed the book because it had a mystery related into it and because it was funny.
