Laura Geringer Books/HarperCollins Publishers: NY, 2005.
Ingrid goes into a woman's home to call a taxi when she becomes lost. Later the woman is found dead. Ingrid is afraid she will be the prime suspect when she realizes she left her cleats. She tries to discover the truth about the murder when she learns that the victim performed with the Prescott Players as she is in the current production. She plays the lead in Alice in Wonderland and feels just as trapped in craziness as Alice. The police chief is concerned about her behavior and asks her disturbing questions. Her algebra teacher has decided she cheats since she finally had a good grade. She, herself, is behaving in all sorts of unusual ways. Solving the mystery will mean an end to the craziness.
Abrahams has created lots of action and suspense with Ingrid popping up all over town in her search for the truth. Having read the sequel first, I know that he has also included connections to the sequel-particularly to her family.
