Tilly Fig is about the life of a teenage girl and her best friend. It is a story of love, friendship...and murder. Dr. Tilly Figlit comes back to her small hometown and the little house where she grew up to visit her ailing mother. While on her visit, Tilly flashes back to her childhood and the vivid memories she has of love and friendship, the funny and poignant events of her school days, and a murder mystery that has gone unsolved all these years. Through her flashback and present-day visit with her mother and younger brother William, the truth eventually reveals itself to Tilly, enabling her in the end to solve the mystery that no one else could. Astounded, only she will ever know the truth about what happened all those years ago. "Tilly takes us on an exciting adventure.
