Little Rhoda Penmark is the evil queen of the story. On the surface, she is sweet, charming, full of old-fashioned graces, loved by her parents, and admired by all her elders. But after a boy from her class wins the penmanship medal instead of her, Rhoda’s charm turns to spite. When the boy mysteriously drowns at a picnic, Mrs. Penmark can’t shake the feeling that Rhoda was somehow involved. Would Rhoda do anything to get the medal she felt she deserved?
