Synopsis

Friendship, perseverance, and the power of belief shine in this novel about a girl trying to stay connected to her late mother. Posthumous "will have a powerful impact on readers." -Kirkus Reviews

While living in Paris, Ellie Kerr's mom penned a series of children's stories, yet sadly died before they could be published. Once Ellie and her father return to the US, the twelve-year-old decides to finish what her mother could not. When Ellie is mysteriously blocked by a password on her mother's computer, she becomes determined to find the truth -- even though four failed attempts will destroy the computer's data, including her mom's stories! Ellie's father thinks that the code is unbreakable, but Ellie believes that her mother might have left a posthumous message in the new password. With the help of friends, Ellie tries to crack the code, publish the books, and ultimately honor her mother.  -Publisher's Starred Review

Paul Aertker (Ett Kerr) writes the Crime Travelers series, a squeaky-clean international action-adventure series, for kids. As a traveler and multilingual teacher, Paul has clocked nearly half his life outside the US. When he was a teenager, he slept on the streets of London to watch a royal wedding. He took the CIA exam because he wanted to be a spy for the good guys (and not the "Good Company"). He was an au pair in France, created programs for the International Youth Foundation in Paraguay and Brazil, and with the Peace Corps, he built a children's library in West Africa. Paul speaks and Skypes with middle schools all over the world. His most recent speeches were in Colorado and Louisiana and Skypes in Oregon, Massachusetts, South Carolina, Mexico, Nigeria, and Vietnam.
