A warm and engaging story for middle-grade readers about dealing with change and finding out who you are.
The last time her neighbour's peacocks went missing Cassie found them. They were sitting on a coiled hose behind the fire station. That time, Dad called her ‘Cassie Andersen, Peacock Detective’. So this time she knows what to do—she’ll look for clues and track down the missing birds.
But the clues lead her in an unexpected direction and Cassie finds herself investigating a confusing mystery about her family.
