about

"A must read for those who love mysteries."- VOYA Maggie Chen's journalist father has fired her imagination with the thrill of the newsroom, and when her father is killed, she is determined to keep his dreams alive by interning at the newspaper. &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp While assisting on her first story, Maggie learns that her father is suspected of illegal activity, and knows she must clear his name. Drawn to Seattle's Chinatown, she discovers things that are far from what she expected: secrets, lies, and a connection to the Chinese Exclusion Era. Using all of her newspaper instincts and resources, Maggie is forced to confront her ethnicity-and a family she never knew.
Jeanette Ingold, the author of six young adult novels, has been writing since she worked as a reporter on a daily newspaper many years ago. Her novel Hitch was a Christopher Award winner. She lives in Missoula, Montana. Visit her online at www.jeanetteingold.com.

Editorial Reviews

In the month after 16-year-old Maggie Chen's father, a respected journalist, was killed in a hit-and-run accident, a basement flood destroys his notebooks? Ingold relies on some contrivance to link her plot strands, but the openended conclusion feels realistic and highlights Maggie's elemental questions about how family history influences personal identity and how life moves forward after impossible loss." - Booklist "Ingold (Hitch) weaves together two intersecting stories in this novel about identity and family? Though the historical chapters start slower, as Fai-yi's story builds, so does the tension and drama, especially his emotionally fraught relationship with his sister and star-crossed love? Ingold offers insight into the sacrifices and secrets involved in emigration from China during this period and their ripple effects." - Publishers Weekly "This novel is a must read for those who love mysteries and family history." - VOYA "
