Pippa, who goes by Pip, is the eldest of two in her household and a bit of an odd duck. Thankfully, she is not the type who is isolated, but she is unlike her friends in that she doesn’t seem to care much for alcohol, doesn’t get much in the way of crushes on boys, but rather has notable, and sometimes intense, interests in things. Of which, lately, it has been the disappearance, and assumed murder, of Andie Bell.
