Maddie’s life is a mess. Along with the usual hassles of eighth
grade, her best friend Rachel has gone boy-crazy and seems drawn to a new
crowd. To make matters worse, everyone’s teasing Maddie for
impulsively breaking into her neighbor’s home when her imagination
went wild thinking that she saw a mythical creature called a Yeti

Then, the new neighbors pull into their driveway and Maddie thinks she sees
a human hand push out the taillight of their car. Other strange events
follow. Are they kidnappers? Spies? Maddie convinces Rachel to help
investigate, hoping that working together will bolster their friendship. But
that looks unlikely after both of them crush on the new neighbors’ son

Maddie is in a no-win situation. If she proves the new neighbors are spies,
Alex will hate her. If she finds out they’re not spies and dates Alex,
Rachel will hate her. But Maddie can’t resist solving a mystery and
soon finds herself on a collision course with her best friend, her first
crush, and the dangerous world of espionage. Her entire world – and
her life – is at risk.


About the Author

Since discovering Nancy Drew books as a child, Diana has been a lifelong
mystery fan. She wrote this story to share her passion with tweens and early
teens, to glorify girl power, and to pay tribute to female spies from the
American Revolution. Recent FBI counterintelligence investigation of Russian
spies, who portrayed themselves as typical Americans, known as Operation
Ghost Stories and an American scientist who was arrested for providing
intelligence to China inspired her to write this story. As a former
litigator, she also drew from her experiences defending FBI prosecutorial
targets and witnesses and handling a case involving someone who had led a
double life. She also did research on Agent 355 of the Culper Spy Ring. She
grew up near Cranbury, New Jersey, where her sister now lives. The
Neighbors’ Secret is a finalist in the Connecticut Tessa Awards.
