Nothing ever happened in Ondine, Louisiana, not even the summer Elijah Landry disappeared- that was an incident, and one most everybody forgot. But fourteen-year-old Iris Rhame, certain she saw his ghost in the town cemetery, is determined to find out the truth behind “The Incident With the Landry Boy.”

What Iris doesn’t realize is that in a town as small as Ondine, every secret is a family secret.
