I’m Frankie Chang and I got a big problem



And I don’t know what to do about it or who can help me.  My mother is missing.  My dad says she’s fine, she’s just gone away.  

“Away?” I ask.  “Where?”  

“Oh, to visit her auntie.”  

 But I don’t believe him.  I think he’s lying to me.  And he’s scared too.  I can always tell when he’s nervous.  


There’s something else going on but I can’t figure out what it is.  My grandfather just starts to cry when I ask too many questions.  
I know you're gonna say, why don't you call the police, but I can't do that.  My dad would kill me if I talked to a stranger.
 

I don’t know who can help but I have an idea.  I found a place down the street in North Beach.  It’s called The Mystic Eye and they have these things called psychic fairs.  Maybe that’s what I need -- a psychic.  Maybe a psychic or an astrologer could tell me where my mother is and where I can find her.  
 
It costs ten bucks to talk to somebody.  I only have seven but I found three dollars in a big jar on a shelf in the kitchen and I snuck it out.  I’m sort of afraid to go there and talk to somebody strange, but I don’t know what else to do. 

What do you think?  Should I go?  Maybe I should talk to an astrologer.  That doesn’t sound as scary as a psychic.  I don’t care who I talk to as long as someone can give me some answers and I can find out what happened to my mother!

PS:  You haven’t met me yet, but you will pretty soon in the next Zodiac Mystery.  Then you can find out the whole story.  

If you'd like to know more about my author Connie di Marco, you can visit her at her website or Facebook and Twitter @askzodia and you can learn all about the stories in the Zodiac Mysteries.
