A Smarter You In 15 Minutes… What is your time worth?

With a tragic and confusing past, Jenna Metcalf, an intelligent and young teenager, has been obsessed for more than a decade with her vanished mother, Alice, a scientist who studied grief among elephants. Jenna does not want to believe that she abandoned her, so she performs an exhausting research through her mom’s works as she expects to find some clues that could reunite them again. 

Two unexpected allies entry on her quest: Serenity Jones, a well-known psychic that help people to find their missing ones and Virgil Stanhope, a jaded private detective who was formerly in charge of Alice and her colleague’s case. The three of them together will have to face hard questions and even harder answers. 

Jenna will have to do the match among her memories of the events and her mother’s journals to end up with a fetching closing which will keep every reader very caught up. Not only because of the mystery solving, but the family drama, the human drama and, of course, the elephants and the way they grieve.
