She is supposed to be in church to get out of trouble...
Sammy is working off some junior high detention time by helping out at St. Marys, but when Father Mayhew discovers that his ivory cross has been stolen, Sammy becomes the prime suspect.

Sammy Keyes and the Sisters Of Mercy

Mary's church, befriends a homeless girl, and plays in a softball tournament against a bitter rival. Now, kids don't usually come to church in the middle of the afternoon on a school day - they're too busy running around town trying to put together enough sins to make going to church on Sunday worthwhile. So her just being there was enough to make me do a double take, but it was her shoes that made me want to go up to her and say, "Hi! Mary's Church for an infraction committed during her last case, Sammy Keyes becomes the prime suspect in the disappearance of Father Mayhew's prized ivory cross. Ace detective that she is, Sammy manages to prove her innocence but soon discovers that, under its calm exterior, St. Mary's is abuzz with gossip, jealousy, and intrigue - just like junior high!
