Help Please!

I’m writing the fourth book in my middle-grade mystery series ‘Mad Maggie Dupree’ and need help with a title.

Maggie Dupree lives on the grounds of the Sillwater Psychiatric Hospital. Her dad is the new hospital administrator. She and her family had to move and live on the grounds as part of her dad’s new job.

While placing coins on the railroad tracks, waiting for the train to run over them, pushing them flat, Maggie and her friends stumble across a homeless man living in a nearby abandoned box car.  When they try to follow him, they find a $50.00 bill scattered by the railroad tracks. Following him into a dilapidated supply tunnel, they find a necklace that looks like the same kind a mean spirited carny at the Darke County Fair had worn a few nights before along with empty money bags from the Stillwater Bank.

As they begin to investigate, an odd looking young boy starts to appear at random times. Always wearing the same brown striped shirt, his face pale but marred by dark smudges, he never speaks, only watching them.

Ideas on a title?

 

One thought on “Help Please!

  1. Just read this. I am reminded, somehow, of the old west when they put silver dollars (allegedly) in the deceased’s eyes. Spent many a summer by the tracks flattening nickels. Lobotomies came to mind as well. So, putting it all together …. Mad Maggie and the Silver Dollar Eye? Maybe the homeless man had only one eye, the other appeared to look like a silver piece, in the dim evening light. Idk. Just a thought. you probably have a title by now. 🙂
