Not only has she discovered that the father she thought was long dead is alive, but she's also learned that her best friend, one-hundred-year-old Miz Lula Maye, is her great-grandmother. But the biggest surprise is yet to come when Miz Lula Maye tells Sylvia about secret holes. Secret holes, Miz Lula Maye explains, were places where people used to keep money and important papers. They could be anywhere -- under a loose floorboard, behind a wall, or even inside a bedpost. While Sylvia helps her best friend uncover hiding places from long ago, she decides there is something she must do. But is Sylvia ready to face what she finds? Book jacket.

Lexile Measure

Please note that the Lexile measures for a small population of books have been recently updated. Enhancements were made to more precisely measure materials read in K-2 classrooms. Although the vast majority of books that have Lexile measures did not change, a small subset of books required updated Lexile measures.

Many products and services offer Lexile measures for their books and reading materials. We are working with the hundreds of companies that partner with us to transition them to the more precise Lexile measures.
