When Max Pepper wears her glasses, no-one seems to notice her. Being the daughter of a weird mom and an absent dad, this suits her just fine. She likes to disappear and be left alone to make her lists...
But then someone steals her mom's favourite dog, Lily, from their home, and no-one can figure out why. Shaun the cop is useless, and with her mom close to a nervous breakdown, it is up to Max to try and solve the mystery. Willburt, the boy from the vet shop, offers to help. He does not seem to mind her lists. And he sees her – even with her glasses on!
As the plot thickens, everyone becomes a suspect. But will they find Lily in time?
