The Loch Ness Monster (The Cryptid Files)
The Loch Ness Monster
Jean Flitcroft
"A huge, glowing object moved slowly toward her. As it approached, the glow grew more intense and the water warmer. Vanessa stopped swimming, waiting for the inevitable... Vanessa's dreams are haunted by cryptids—mysterious creatures that may or may not exist. Her mother used to study them, gathering scientific evidence that at least some of them are real. Vanessa longs to continue her mother's research. At the moment, though, she also has more pressing concerns—like a family trip that includes her father's new girlfriend. But the visit to Scotland gives Vanessa a chance to explore the eerie secrets of Loch Ness. With the help of her mother's cryptid files, can she solve the mystery of the most famous cryptid of all?"

And a family trip to Scotland is going to give Vanessa an opportunity to study the famous Loch Ness Monster. But unfortunately it isn't only Vanessa. Her two brothers and father are going on the trip. Lee McDonald, her father’s new girlfriend (whom Vanessa hates), is also coming along.
