Wow!!! Mascha is spending the summer with her grandparents in a perfect town with perfect neighbors. She meets two children, Julia and Max, and soon becomes convinced that they are being abused. She tries to let her grandparents and other adults know - but noone listens. So Mascha takes matters into her own hands. While I wouldnever condone what Mascha decided to do in this book, I think the story may resonate with students. Intense and thought provoking.
