Sixth grader Miss Moses "Mo" LoBeau washed ashore in a small North Carolina town in a hurricane 11 years ago, and has found a home with the Colonel — a cafe owner with a forgotten past of his own — and Miss Lana, the fabulous cafe hostess. When a lawman comes to town asking about a murder, Mo and her best friend, Dale Earnhardt Johnson III, set out to find the truth and defend the only family Mo has ever known.
