This off-beat novel pushes the outer limits of the imagination!
Questions can be tricky things, and the three Tompkins kids each have their own way of dealing with them. India gets by most of the time on charm alone. Finn is too quiet to be asked in the first place. And Mouse? She's the genius — the one who is used to having all the answers. But when they lose their house in foreclosure and are forced to journey to Colorado to live with their uncle, the kids find their flight detoured to a strange destination called Falling Bird, a city without rhyme or reason.
At first it looks like a paradise designed to fulfill their every wish, but finally it leaves them homeless and wandering...and, strangely, it refuses to let them go. Now they face a whole slew of impossible questions, all demanding answers, and not even Mouse knows how to answer 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 reality itself keeps getting away from you?
