"Mandie and The Courtroom Battle" by Lois Gladys Leppard

About this book:

  “Etta Shaw, Mandie's stepmother, has been the source of unending problems for Mandie. And when Etta comes to town to file papers she claims are a will that Mandie's father made giving her the house at Charley Gap, it appears that a courtroom battle is about to take place.
  But Mandie has papers that declare her to have the right to the house that she loves so much. Who has the true legal document? Could Mandie's father have changed his mind and made a new will? And when it's discovered that Mandie's will has been stolen or hidden, how will they ever be able to prove that Mandie has any legal right to the house?
  Where is Mandie's will? How will the judge decide?”
