The Secret of Bailey's Chase
2010 Readers Favorite Gold Medal Winner for Young Adult Fiction
When Grey Bailey's parents are suddenly swept away in a flash flood, making her an instant orphan, she is sent halfway across the country to live with relatives in a town called Bailey s Chase. Fortunately, her new family includes a girl just her age, Sparky. It doesn't take the ten-year-old cousins long to become friends, even though they find each other a bit strange.
But strange doesn't begin to explain the magical and mysterious events that happen from the moment the girls meet, nothing making sense until they meet a Gypsy woman. She warns them to only use their power for good, swears them to secrecy, and warns them of evil forces that will be their enemies.
Armed with only a charm to protect them, they settle into a life of adventure, mystery, and danger in the small Midwestern town.
