She died today.
One phone call changes Jason's summer vacation-and life!-forever. When Jason's grandmother dies, he's sent down to her home in Florida to help his father sort through her things. At first he gripes about spending the summer miles away from his best friend, doing chores, and sweating in the Florida heat, but he soon discovers a mystery surrounding his grandmother's murky past.
An old, yellowed postcard . . . a creepy phone call with a raspy voice at the other end asking, "So how smart are you?" . . . an entourage of freakish funeral-goers . . . a bizarre magazine story-all contain clues that will send Jason on a thrilling journey to uncover family secrets.
