Finding Fortune

finding-fortuneWritten by Delia Ray

Ren has decided to run away from home. Her mom and dad had separated before her dad had left for Afghanistan. Now his duty is almost over and her mom has been spending a lot of time with the neighbor, Rick. Her mom didn’t even do anything special for the last day of sixth grade. Ren is running to Fortune, a ghost town a few miles away. Or Mis-Fortune, as many call it. Mrs. Baxter, the landlady of the old school, lets Ren a room. What are Mrs. Baxter’s secrets? Why is she roaming the school at nights? Can Ren help Mrs. Baxter and herself?
