In this second book of the Boarding School Mysteries series, a suspenseful story perfect for young readers ten and up, sixth-grader Jeri McKane is shocked when a blackmailer targets her best friend, Rosa, revealing secrets very few people would know. But when Rosa accuses Jeri of writing the threatening notes, Jeri's investigations to clear her name and uncover the truth lead her into more danger than she ever could have imagined.
Jeri couldn't be more excited that Rosa landed the lead role in their school's presentation of the musical Cinderella. But her best friend's usually upbeat personality is dulled during practice ... and soon Jeri finds out why. Rosa received a note containing a secret that could get her kicked off the play unless she pays to keep things quiet. Jeri is determined to find answers, but as the notes increase, so does the number of suspects. And Rosa is becoming convinced the culprit might be Jeri herself. At the same time, Jeri's absent father has suddenly reached out after months of no communication. But just as Jeri feels her life can't get more complicated, her investigation leads her directly into danger.
