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? Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miri | 2/17/2014

    " Should this be 3.5 stars? I'm not sure. I liked it, though. I'll have to think about it more. I really liked how the story developed between India and Mouse, and the ending was just lovely and interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 2/6/2014

    " I really liked this book. It's meant for young readers, and the girls and I started out reading it together. But it's weird. You don't know where you are or what's happening. I could see it better than they could (in third grade), but it really amazed me that Choldenko would go there in a book for young readers. The girls never finished. I'm going to try to re-introduce it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 2/1/2014

    " This is bound to be one of the talked about books this year. I was reminded of A Wrinkle in Time as three siblings find themselves in a time-bending adventure that tests the binds of family. The ending absolutely floored me - I didn't see it coming and it provided the story a dream-like reality. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stephen | 1/15/2014

    " This book went from "really good" to "what the heck??" I was almost ready to say "This is at the top of my list." Now it's just "This would make a nice door stop!!" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim Piddington | 1/11/2014

    " Loved the Tompkins kids and was enjoying their interactions and dilemma until it went sci-fi on me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim Maddin | 1/10/2014

    " Interesting, a bit strange at times, but kept me reading until the end! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelle | 1/7/2014

    " An interesting children's book. Different from anything I've read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mercy | 12/30/2013

    " Disappointed- thougth the ending was a little rushed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandy | 12/25/2013

    " Weird book. But then again, that's kind of the point. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Adriane Robinson | 12/4/2013

    " Weird-that's all I can say. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 10/28/2013

    " Told in three voices this is fabulous! Good study on how to write distinct voices between characters. The six year old voice is clearly a six year old and is still written at a middle grade level - unbelievable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danyelle Leafty | 8/15/2013

    " Excellent characterizations, fun concept, humor with heart. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liz | 5/18/2013

    " It was an interesting book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Toni | 1/3/2013

    " Loved this. I couldn't put it down. Three kids are sent on a airplane to live with their uncle in Colorado. When they land, things get very strange. They don't know what is happening, but try to adapt to their new environment, but also trying to get to their uncle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 7/11/2012

    " I really was hooked on this story and thought I had it all figured out halfway through. I just found the technique of mixing reality with dreaming and the subconscious to tell a story very compelling. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sam Charley | 6/28/2012

    " It was really easy to read, but it draws you in- I didn't want to stop reading! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sir Kittykinz | 6/16/2012

    " This book really confused me. I didn't understand it. One minute they're in love with their mansions, next they're running away from them. I expected way mo because of the success of Al Capone Does My Shirts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katelin | 6/7/2012

    " I loved the unpredicatable plot, it kept me reading to guess see what would happen next. This is a fast read about three children who board a plane only to land in an crazy city where the kids have to figure how to return home. The author did an especially nice job of handling the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nan | 3/6/2012

    " Good, reminded me of the show "Lost." A bit macabre and confusing to the kids. Harder to follow on tape, although nice hearing the different voices. Don't think I'd recommend it as a BES. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ali | 12/14/2011

    " Though this looks like an easy read I think it will be a lot of fun. Can't wait to dive in. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 5/17/2011

    " will pass along to my 11 yr. old "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 5/12/2011

    " Really enjoyed this book. Left me with lots to think about. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily | 5/10/2011

    " Umm...so are these kids dead? Is this Lost? This book lost me and I LOVE GENNIFER CHOLDENKO!
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 K.Lee | 5/8/2011

    " I liked the fact the story was told from all three kids' perspectives. It just seemed like there was a whole lot crammed into one book. I think the author could have easily expanded this into a three/ four book series and really delved into the "other world" "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Carla | 5/3/2011

    " starts out interesting but go too heavy handed and i didn't even want to finish is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 5/3/2011

    " India, Finn and Mouse are told they have 24 hours to pack. They are moving to their Uncle's house because the their house has been foreclosed on. They are to fly alone, because mom needs to stay behind for her job. The plane takes off for Colorado, but it definitely does NOT land there! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 5/1/2011

    " A good kids' book, although some of it was a bit unclear. I loved the sci-fi aspect of it and the ending, but some of the things just didn't make sense. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barb | 4/25/2011

    " Well, it was like a really long, disjointed nightmare. I kinda figured it out about 3/4 of the way through. Interesting and scary idea. I'd pass on this one. "
