From NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Blue Balliett, the story of a girl who falls into Chicago's shelter system, and from there must solve the mystery of her father's strange disappearance.

Where is Early's father? He's not the kind of father who would disappear. But he's gone... and he's left a whole lot of trouble behind.

As danger closes in, Early, her mom, and her brother have to flee their apartment. With nowhere else to go, they are forced to move into a city shelter. Once there, Early starts asking questions and looking for answers. Because her father hasn't disappeared without a trace. There are patterns and rhythms to what's happened, and Early might be the only one who can use them to track him down and make her way out of a very tough place.

With her signature, singular love of language and sense of mystery, Blue Balliett weaves a story that takes readers from the cold, snowy Chicago streets to the darkest corner of the public library, on an unforgettable hunt for deep truths and a reunited family

This book have been in my shelve like forever, and since I'm clearing up my shelve I just closed my eyes and decided that any book that I pick up I have to read it. That's how I started to read this book. My first impression when reading this book "wow" I like it when it involves a librarian world. Fantastic! because I'm a librarian so whenever I read something about library I always eager to read more and excited!!! What makes me more trilled to read this book when there is mystery involving books, libraries, and diamonds. Such a nice book!

It been so long since I have read a great book. This book lifted my live a bit when the author successfully describing about woodland area. I never heard of that area before. How author let us to think how we treat homeless people and to feel their feelings through this book. this is because when Early's father disappear they have to move out to the shelter with her mom and her little brother because they don't have money to afford living at their current place.

I would say that this book is a suitable book that teach us about manners through the characters inside this book. I like the bonding between the main character and the people at shelter and lastly this is a very unique book because Balliett once again enchants the reader with the beauty and power of language.

Overall I give ⭐⭐⭐⭐ over ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
