From the Publisher:
Things are amiss at 99 Maple Lane. Ingrid's dad's job is in jeopardy and her brother, Ty, is getting buff—really buff—but his moodiness is making Ingrid start to wonder . . . Meanwhile, Ingrid's beloved soccer coach is replaced by an icy newcomer who seems a little too savvy to be in it for the postgame pizza. True to her hero, Sherlock Holmes, Ingrid begins fishing around to find out who's really pulling the strings in Echo Falls. But one morning, while en route to the dreaded MathFest, Ingrid is kidnapped and locked in the trunk of a car. Even if she escapes, will anyone believe her story?
A kidnapping, family tension, and suspicious activities combine to complicate teenage sleuth Ingrid Levin-Hill's life even more in the second riveting Echo Falls Mystery. As her father becomes increasingly work-obsessed, Ingrid's brother's sudden strength and moodiness cause her to wonder what he's up to. At school, her math teacher is out to get her, and the new soccer coach, though cold and distant, is way too interested in Ingrid. Then, when she's--seemingly out of the blue--kidnapped, the stakes rise higher than ever before. Will Ingrid be able to unravel everything before it's too late? Bestseller DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE was the first title in the young adult Echo Falls Mystery series.
