Good but the genre twisting was a little confusing to me. It starts with realistic details moves to science fiction horror and then back to realism.

We follow three children - India, Finn, and "Mouse" - who are sent to live with an uncle in another state before their mom is able to join them. The action begins when the children embark on their plane journey. The other worldly details that mark the fantasy/science fiction part of the plot was well-done. The children experience crisis identity challenges that are worthy of a guided discussion for young readers. I was surprised at the wrap-up of the story. Since I'm an adult, I'll just say the last couple of chapters contains realistic content that parents may find heavier than the middle school readers.
