Intrigue, danger and excitement dramatically weave themselves into Consuelo Harburton's new life. After becoming orphaned, the young farm girl must adjust to her painful loss and to living with her grandmother in the suburbs. Grandmother is of another culture and lives in a world quite different from the one Consuelo left behind.

Too much happens too soon. As school starts, Consuelo struggles against the changes in her life. Houses in her new neighborhood are being burglarized and the young girl is drawn into a web of mystery. Her new cast of quirky friends and her grandmother's concerted efforts to make her feel at home gradually bolster Consuelo's confidence. But it is her real-life heroism that inspires her to give this new life an honest try.
