Summary
"Tash doesn't want to go to camp, doesn't want to spend the summer with a bunch of strangers, doesn't want to be separated from the only two people she has ever been able to count on: her uncle Kevin, who saved her from foster care, and Cap'n Jackie, who lives next door. Camp turns out to be pretty fun, actually, but when Tash returns home, Cap'n Jackie is gone. And Tash needs her -- the made-up stories of dolphin-dragons, the warm cookies that make everything all right after a fight, the key Cap'n Jackie insists has magic in it. The Captain has always said that all Tash has to do is hold it tight and the magic will come. Is it true? And can the key bring Cap'n Jackie back?"--from dust jacket
Summary
Reluctantly attending camp away from the uncle who saved her from foster care and an elderly next-door neighbor who shares stories and warm cookies, 11-year-old Tash is dismayed when she returns home and discovers that her neighbor has gone missing, a situation that compels her to test the power of a key that the neighbor has always insisted possesses magic
