North to Nowhere by Liz Kessler - OPTIONAL

Kessler, Liz North to Nowhere, 264 p. Candlewick, 2013.  $16.  

Content: G.  

Instead of a fun spring break, Mia is resigned to hanging out with her grandmother in tiny Porthaven as she anxiously awaits word of her missing grandfather.  But Mia’s vacation is not destined to be unmemorable.  Instead, she has an important part to play in a mystery that is 50 years in the making.  

Sometimes I have to ask myself if I am reading a book as a child would, but time travel adventures are tricky things and I just don’t think Kessler pulls this one off.  I won’t exposit too much, but I think you should wait until this is in paperback to buy it.
