Orbit had been given to Melanie when she was ten and he was only three months old, and they had been growing up together ever since. Orbit was never out of her thoughts, and he waited all day for the moment she came home from school to ride him. Then Mom and Pop went away to San Francisco for a week, giving Melanie the perfect opportunity to put her cherished plan into action--her secret wish to bring Orbit inside the house.

And somewhere, she was sure of it, locked in her head was some little memory, a shred of a clue to the thief.
