My name is Olivia Sharp. I'm an agent for secrets. That means I'm a special kind of detective.

Mybest friend is Taffy Plimpton. She used to live in my building on the fourth floor. Not anymore. She moved to Carmel, California. I miss her a lot. Right after Taffy left I did two things. First I got an owl I named Hoot. Hoot keeps me company, but she's no Taffy Plimpton, Then I went into the agent-for-secrets . business. 3
One day I was sitting in my favorite white fluffy chair looking out across San Francisco Bay and smoothing Hoot's feathers. My chauffeur, Willie, came into 4
the room. "A letter for you, Boss," he said. The envelope was postmarked Carmel, California. I knew.the letter was 'from Taffy.

read Taffy's letter again. Agents for secrets have to know how to read between the lines. That's how they learn what's really important. I knew that Taffy's P.S. was more important 6
