When her best friend Sophie goes missing, 12-year-old Ruby Tabeata has a choice: wait for her friend to come home or defy her parents and find Sophie.

Set during the 1950s Blacklist era when writers like Sophie's mom were being jailed or fired, Fool's Errand sends Ruby out of her city and her comfort zone.

With nothing to rely on but her grit and determination, Ruby has to outsmart the men chasing Sophie and her mom-discovering that whether or not you succeed, trying to save a friend is never a fool's errand.

Read part one of this middle-grade Beat Street Series, The Beat on Ruby's Street, to learn how Ruby's story begins.

Please Note: narrative language and dialogue was designed to evoke the 1950s. The author does not condone 1950s language in present times.
