Further details

Ace school reporter Mia proves her journalistic credentials by scooping a much sought after interview with "it" girl and chart-topping star Shona Beiderbeck. And if that isn't enough good news, Ben, an exchange week pupil placed in her care, puts a spring in her step - could Mia be in love? When the much anticipated interview is stolen, Mia is reluctant to let Moon and Red investigate the case and tells them just to forget it. But could the object of her affections have his own reason for also hoping Moon and Red drop the case? Meanwhile Papa Sharkey is investigating a mystery of his own. Two of his kids have come home with black eyes and he's determined to get to the bottom of it before the Sharkey name is dragged through the mud once again.
