A reality-bending adventure from a Newbery Honor-winning author

Siblings India, Finn, and Mouse are stunned when their mom tells them they are flying that night--without her--to their Uncle Red's home in Colorado.

Editorial Reviews

"A fun ride, full of adventure, suspense, and good characterization." - School Library Journal "Concrete yet dreamlike." - The Horn Book "Choldenko's pacing is sure and her use of airport argot (white courtesy phones, a missing black box) adds an inventive element to this story of unlikely survival." - Publishers Weekly "Constant shifts in perspective create suspense and contribute to the novel's eerie, dreamlike quality. The humdinger of an ending helps explain this off-kilter world while leaving much to ponder." - The Washington Post "Fascinating." - Kirkus Reviews "The distinct voices of India, Finn, and Mouse, joint narrators, ring loud and clear with the complications of sibling rivalry . . . . Choldenko infuses each with a unique tenderness and humor." - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "A fast-paced mindbender." - Booklist
