Grace and Tilly are 10 years old, best friends, living on a seemingly quiet street in England. When on of the neighbors goes missing, the girls decide to see if they can find God in their neighborhood. Turns out all of the neighbors are hiding secrets, and the missing woman knows all of them. Does her disappearance have something to do with all her knowledge? The neighbors are wary of each other until "Jesus" is discovered in the neighborhood in the form of a stain near a drainpipe. This discovery seems to bring the neighborhood together, and several of the secrets are revealed.
Overall this is a charming read. Grace and Tilly are charming and the neighbors interesting. The story is well told. And the mystery fun.
It isn't your "normal" thriller, but it has been tagged thriller, so I am counting it!
