she starts sneaking out at night without telling anyone. Eventually Roxanne
gets fed up with it and decides the next night to follow her. What she found
shocked her. Her hardworking, never hurt a fly mother, was stealing from her
workplace, along with some shady looking people. Will Roxanne be able to summon
enough courage to confront her mother about what she’s seen?
