Where To Find It
Call number: Y Fantasy / Choldenko, Gennifer
Available Copies: Downtown Youth, Malletts Youth, Pittsfield Youth, Traverwood Youth
With their house in foreclosure, sisters India and Mouse and brother Finn are sent to stay with an uncle in Colorado until their mother can join them, but when the plane lands, the children are welcomed by cheering crowds to a strange place where each of them has a perfect house and a clock that is ticking down the time.
The description above gives the plot summary. To elaborate slightly: three children are sent to live with their uncle in Colorado, but end up in some strange city in their own fantastic houses for 1 fantastic day. At the end of the day, they are unceremoniously dumped out of the house, and somehow know they have to work together to escape before time runs out. Can they do it? And what does it all mean? I was able to foresee the resolution but I will say that it seemed to leave my 11yo son slightly baffled as to what was real and what was...a dream? a hallucination? the land between time?
No passengers beyond this point is by Gennifer Choldenko who also wrote, Al Capone does my shirts and Al Capone Shines my shoes. (Maybe you have heard of those).
