John Watson had just moved away from his father and his friends to New York when he meets a strange nine-year-old girl named Shelby Holmes. She's tiny and not very good with people, but she can solve mysteries in a way that even the police can't. When a beloved dog vanishes, Shelby is asked to get on the case and John decides to follow along. Using her powers of observation, Shelby helps solve the case while John helps her solve a different mystery: how to be friends with someone.
