Twelve-year-old Anna is staying with her grandmother, Mim, for the summer. She's hoping that the town's annual Flower Festival, a celebration filled with floats and music, will help take her mind off her parents' troubled marriage. 

She knows what she saw . . . . 
Twelve-year-old Anna is staying with her grandmother, Mim, for the summer. She's hoping that the town's annual Flower Festival, a celebration filled with floats and music, will help take her mind off her parents' troubled marriage. Then she sees a girl her own age who seems to be being held against her will.  Anna can't forget the girl's frightened eyes, and is determined to investigate.  The only problem is, very few people are willing to listen to her. 
Luckily, Anna is confident – she knows what she saw, and she's not afraid to talk to people about it.  And most importantly, she refuses to give up until the girl gets the help she needs. 
'Anna McConnell, a budding actress about to enter eighth grade, proves that one person can make a difference in this novel filled with comedy and drama.' Publishers Weekly
