TIffany Mueller | 3 comments Detective starts dating the mom. Dead dad. Grandfather lives with them. I think he fishes? Or used to be a boxer? tough old coot. I think kid's name was Annie? Find out in the middle of the book the mom was molested as a kid. Ends up catching the guy and when he sees her wire she screams I'm a cop!

I have NO clue why this book crossed my mind today, but I remember reading it multiple times.

Tiffany, is this book for young adults (teens) or older adults?

How does the teenage girl go undercover as a child?

What's the time period and location (country, region, big city/small town)?

TIffany Mueller | 3 comments The teenage girl looks really young, with right clothes and hair she looks 9. She’s good at art. I want to say it was YA. Smallish town, woods behind her house

Kym | 1058 comments I’m sure this has been requested before. I remember the discussion about a teenager able to pass as a child, but for some reason, the search discussion posts doesn’t seem to be working today.

Anyone else having the same issue?

Any..."

Yes, the inability to find that other thread was torturing me since yesterday. This is the one I remembered: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

And yes, search doesn't seem to work for me, either, I just searched for "trunk" again - no results, despite it being in the other thread.

Kym | 1058 comments That’s the one I was thinking of. Thanks Ayshe and I’m glad I’m not the only one having trouble with the search feature.

Ayshe | 4324 comments You're welcome, Tiffany! Me, too - the search for that other thread :)

Thank you, Kym, I posted about the search issue here: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...
