About the Book

In book one of, The Story of ‘Q’, ten-year-old Rachael Lexington, lives with her parents and  six-year-old sister, Melanie. She is a fifth-grader and excellent student at Neil Armstrong Elementary School. She loves learning new things, meeting new people and shares her father’s love of science and astronomy.

One day while attending the annual garage sale event in her neighborhood, she stumbles upon a porcelain letter ‘Q’ and cannot understand why she feels compelled to buy it. However, she convinces herself to make the purchase, for it just happens to match the decor of her newly re-decorated bedroom. Embarrassed that others may think it too childish, the ‘Q’ remains stuffed in her closet for weeks, until she has the nerve to display it on her desk.

Weeks later her best friend Jenny, spends the night at Rachael’s house, when they accidentally discover that the ‘Q’ may be more than a simple decorative item, after her little sister mysteriously goes missing later that night.

One of many reviews found on Amazon:

A fast & fun read that draws you into the story & characters; I had planned to read just part of it last evening, but stayed up late to finish it. The writer has a wonderful folksy style without being corny. I especially liked two educational items interwoven into the story: the use of occasional challenging vocabulary (no need to stop to look up a word in order to make sense of it) & a few scientific & geographical references (which teach a few facts along the way, are integral to the story, & add interest). Looking forward to Volume 2!
