Twelve-year-old Emma Graham lives and works at the Hotel Paradise in La Porte. She becomes fascinated with a 40-year-old mystery--the death of 12-year-old Mary Ellen Devereaux who drowned in the middle of the night, alone and wearing her best dress. The resolute Emma questions all those in her town who remember anything about the case and goes through a host of machinations to uncover the truth.
