Title of My Book: The Boxcar Children The Power Down Mystery (Chapter 9) Question #1: What is the setting of this chapter? Answer #1: The main setting of the chapter the Town of Greenfield because Henry is interviewing the townspeople about what they were doing at the time when the power and internet went out. The chapter begins and ends in the woods where the boxcar is hidden because that is where the main characters sleep. Question #2: What happens in this chapter? Answer #2: In this chapter, Henry tries to solve the mystery of why the power and internet went out by interviewing the townspeople. Henry asks the Baker, the Librarian, and Mrs. Smith where they were in the town at the time when the power and internet went out. The Baker and the Librarian said they were at work when the power went out, but Mrs. Smith says she was asleep. Henry is suspicious of Mrs. Smith because the Librarian said Mrs. Smith actually came into the library to check out a book when the power went out!
