Allison Investigates

Taylor Joseph

Allison Martin has two big problems: she has an overactive imagination, and she can't stay out of other people's business. Her lifelong goal is to become a detective, and when her neighbor's car is stolen, she seizes the moment. After snooping around, Allison and her friends discover a simple clue that the police overlook. Suddenly they are thrust into the intriguing, close-knit skateboarder subculture that could hold the key to their mystery.

Before they know it, they find themselves neck deep in a group of car thieves connected to organized crime. With nowhere to turn, they are forced to make a tough decision, stand up to the car thieves and jeopardize their families safety, or to look the other way and give up Alison's longtime dream.

Allison Investigates
is a fast-paced adventure that takes the reader deep into the urban underworld as Allison and her friends make the jump from teens to young adults in the most memorable summer of their lives.

Taylor Joseph, age fifteen, is the previous author of The Crossing. She lives in Canton, Michigan, with her family.
