Beatrice loves insects. Spending time in their world helps her ignore her own. It helps her forget that she’s been left out, whether at school or in her own family. Her saving grace is a summer-long babysitting gig working for her idol Mrs. Anderson. After a few days Bea realizes that things are not rosy in the Anderson home. She wants to figure out why, so she starts to snoop around. Maybe it’s a divorce, or maybe it’s something far worse. She has to decide whether to keep her comfortable distance from the world or to get involved. When five-year-old James gets pulled into the mystery, she has no choice.
