If Veronica Mars was 13 years old, this would be her!â Through a series of ridiculous events, 13-year-old Penny-Ann Piper has come to live on Piper Island with her quirky Aunt Grace. Although Pennyâs new to the eccentric and salty Florida town, sheâs proud of her connection to it. After all, her grandparents founded the oddball place where everyone makes it their business to know your business. Theyâre nosy that way.Â Â So when someone steals the time capsule Penny-Ann created chronicling the islandâs history, sheâs determined to get it back. Principal Berger and Officer Crawl think itâs a prank, but who could have taken it, and why? Penny-Annâs on-again-off-again best friend Josie? Rocco Garcia, the annoying (but also cute) surfer boy? Twin MMA fighters who think muscles should get them a credit in math?Â With the help of her new friend, Diamond, who may or may not be part of the X-Men, Penny-Ann revives Piper Investigations, her grandparentsâ detective agency. But thereâs more to the missing time capsule than anyone realizes. It seems someone will do anything to get Penny-Ann to back off the caseâ¦including revealing her top-secret, ultra-embarrassing past.
