Overview

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. But things take an even more dramatic turn when their plane lands in a very unusual place. A mysterious driver meets them at the airport; when he drops them off at their "destination," each kid suddenly has a clock with a different amount of time left. If the time runs out, they have to become permanent citizens in a place they don't recognize or understand. Only if they work together can they call the driver back to help get them where they really belong. Suspenseful, funny, dramatic, and thought-provoking, this is a book that will stay with you long after you read the incredible ending.

Don't get me wrong- this isn't a bad book at all. It just gets really confusing and hard to follow at some parts. Sometimes it just makes no sense. Other than that, I enjoyed the whimsical plot to this book. It comes with good things as well as bad things- so be warned whrn you buy it.

Good book. Might make a good mother/daughter book club title. A mother and her children are forced to leave their home due to foreclosure. The children head off on the plane to Colorado to live with their uncle while their mother finished up the school year. Trouble is when they land they are in a strange place where the driver sent to pick them up has never hear of their uncle. The older girl in the story finds out what is really important to her.

This is one crazy fantasy mystery! Anyone who loves a good puzzle should pick this one up. The three Tompkins kids are told that Mom has just lost the house to the bank, and that she will have to stay in California to do final paperwork and finish the school year at her teaching job. India, Finn and Mouse have to get on a plane and fly to Colorado, where they will live with Uncle Red until Mom comes to join them in June. India is 14, and quite the self-absorbed drama queen. Finn has basketball dreams, but a water-boy reality because he's so short. Mouse is an adorable kindergarten genius, long on facts and book learning but short on experience and street smarts (like don't try to bring an exploding volcano experiment through airport security). When their plane lands unusually quickly, the three discover that they are in a fantastic "other" place, where everyone knows your name and cheers you as you arrive from the airport in a hot pink feathered taxi, and there's a dream home for each of you. Dreams like this don't last, and when everything falls apart, the three siblings find their individual strengths are much more when they are all together. Lots of weird puzzle pieces (the white cat, the clocks, the black box, etc). Fun, very different, and very imaginative! 6th grade and up.

I really liked this book until the ending, which left me disappointed. India, Finn and Mouse are told by their mother that they have lost their house and are moving immediately to live with their uncle in a different state. Their mother, a teacher, will remain behind until the end of the school year. But they land in a strange place where everyone knows their names, their likes and dislikes, and their secret wishes. For one day everything is wonderful until they are replaced with other newcomers and realize they are trapped in this other confusing world. The next part is somewhat reminiscent of The Hunger Games where it seems that the people in charge have eyes everywhere and can even control the weather. The three siblings sometimes work together to get away, but sometimes teenager India works against the other two when she's not sure if she wants to leave. The ending is almost one of those "then they woke up and realized they were dreaming" types of endings. I like Gennifer Choldenko's works a lot, but I ultimately preferred the Al Capone books.

Summary: After the bank forecloses on their house, their mom sends Finn, India and Mouse to fictional Ft. Baker, Colorado to live with their Uncle Red. Since mom is a school teacher and they need the money from her job, she will join them once the school year ends. However, it's not Ft. Baker where they land, but Falling Bird. Reminiscent of Dorothy's trip to Oz, the children soon realize that Falling Bird is like no place they have ever heard of - and though at first it seems like a wonderful place to India and Mouse (Finn is more skeptical), they soon realize that home is where you family is and "there is no place like home." But time is running out. Will they beat the clock and make it home? This story had the beginnings of a realistic story detailing an all too common experience for many families in today's economy. When the plane lands the story shifts from realistic fiction to fantasy. It is a little confusing - trying to figure out just what is going on - but the confusion the reader feels is the same as the characters. Choldenko's craftily woven plot pulls the reader into the story, making it easy for readers to identify with the characters. Half the fun of the reading the book is trying to solve the puzzle. Young adults/pre-teens will identify with how the children feel about being uprooted from their home. Adults will appreciate the growth the children experience as they try to find their way back. Readers who enjoy a bit of a mystery with a twist and a little bit of fantasy will enjoy this book.Recommended for 4th Grade and up.Mrs. Archer's rating: 4 of 5
