Questions can be tricky things. Everyone has their own way of dealing with them. India Tompkins can charm her way out of answering most of them. Finn Tompkins is too quiet to be asked in the first place. And Mouse Tompkins? She's a genius—she's used to having all the answers.
But when they find themselves trapped in Falling Bird—a city seemingly without logic—the Tompkins kids are facing a whole slew of impossible questions, all demanding answers, and not even Mouse knows how to solve these.
How do you find your way home when you aren't even on the map? What's the fastest way to wrap your brain around a problem when time itself keeps getting away from you? And if your life at home wasn't perfect, can you be sure you really want to go back?

"Narration by three narrators makes sense for a story with a quickly shifting reality. Jessie Bernstein portrays 12-year-old Finn, who's tense with worry about the foreclosure of his family's home and his mother's plan to send her children to their Colorado uncle. Becca Battoe depicts Finn's 14-year-old sister, India, who's sullen and resentful at being responsible for her young, eccentric sister, Mouse. Tara Sands's lilting high pitch convinces listeners of Mouse's happy acceptance when an hour's plane trip brings the siblings to Falling Bird, an unsettling place that appeals to each of their individual sensibilities--at first. Because all three narrators establish a strong sense of character, the tensions that divide the three heroes add a chilling quality to an action-packed puzzle. S.W.
